DELORIS PATTERSON (McMULLIN) SCOVILLE

It is with love, tenderness, and sadness that our family shares the news of mom’s passing from this life. We know she is now with her husband Scott (Gordon), whom she has missed so much for the past 21 years. She hated to leave her family here, but she talked often of the great and grand reunion not only with dad, but with her grandson Chandler, of meeting her mother who passed away when mom was three, and seeing again her Patterson, McMullin, and Scoville families. Mom left peacefully on September fifth, and as her family we have delightful thoughts of her and dad “dancing” together with the youth, gracefulness, and joy that they always had as they danced in life. Our memories of mom are the ones in which she was full of life and young at heart; we love this photo of mom – it captures who she always was, and is again! Mom leaves behind seven children: Cheri (Warren) Depew, Terri Scoville (Larry Semchuk), Randy (Kelly) Scoville, Gordon (Tricia) Scoville, Sheila (Dave) Price, Regan Scoville, and Michelle (Mark) Pilling; 24 grandchildren, and 29 great-grandchildren … all of whom she thought were the smartest, best-looking, and greatest ‘grands’ and ‘greats’ in the world. The Funeral Service will be held on Monday, September 12th, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at the RAYMOND LDS STAKE CENTRE. Extended family and friends may meet with the family from 9:30 am to 10:40 am only. Interment will be at the Temple Hill Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, those who wish, may donate to the Raymond Public Library. With gratitude that is hard to express, we thank the doctors and nurses of Raymond & Lethbridge (who saw her often over these past few years), and the staff at Good Sams in Raymond; we thank each and every one of you for your wonderful, kind, respectful, and gentle care of mom. We could not have “done this” (these last five years) without you.

Eva was involved in many community organizations such as the Paw Society and the local soup kitchen. She was always there to lend a hand to any one in need.
