Rita Kathleen Scott

December 14, 1954 — December 28, 2022



Rita Kathleen Scott passed away on December 28th, 2022 in hospital with her beloved sister Pamela by her side.

Rita was born in Tacoma, Washington on December 14th 1954 and moved to Warrenton, Oregon over thirty years ago and she deeply loved the community she became part of. Rita derived much more pleasure in giving than receiving and was generous to a fault. She particularly enjoyed anonymous giving, she always gave to local school supply drives, Secret Santas, toy drives and every year she would bring Christmas treats to Warrenton Fire & Police departments.

Rita was married to Mike Scott, a Vietnam Vet who passed away in 2014. They enjoyed riding motorcycles and camping together.

She loved cooking, baking cookies and watching cooking shows. One of her all-time favorite memories was seeing Reba McEntire at Camp Rilea during the Regatta of 2011. She was a loyal employee of the Main Street Market for many years before moving to the Nike Outlet store. She was known and loved by many and will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her loving sister, Pamela Jividen, aunts, cousins, nephews, nieces and many, many friends. Pamela would like to recognize the excellent care Rita received during her stay on the Intensive Care Unit at Columbia Memorial Hospital in Astoria.
Burial of both Rita, and her late husband, Michal's cremated remains will take place at Fort Stevens National Cemetery 1198 Russell Drive, Hammond, OR 97121 at 11:00AM February 27, 2023. Later that afternoon, a celebration of life will be held at Warrenton First Baptist Church at 2:00pm with a reception to follow.
