Martha Jane Scott (1935-2017)

Martha Jane Scott, 81, of Creedmoor, TX was called home to our heavenly father on November 14, 2017 with her family at her bedside. Martha was born on Christmas Day in 1935 to Martin C. and Bertha M. Graef, in Creedmoor, TX.  Martha was one of four children and had a happy childhood growing up on the family farm.  Martha attended elementary school in Buda before graduating from Austin High School.  She earned her Registered Nurse Diploma from The Seton School of Nursing in 1957 and worked as a RN at Gary Job Corps in San Marcos.  Martha joined the medical staff at Southwest Texas State University in the mid-1970s and became the head nurse of the student infirmary until her retirement in 1996.  After raising her children in Kyle, TX, Martha returned to the family farm in Creedmoor where she was born. Martha is remembered for her very strong work ethic, fierce independence, and selfless devotion to her children and extended family.

Martha is preceded in death by her parents, Martin and Bertha Graef and her brother, Donald Graef. She is survived by her life-long companion and soul mate, George Mitchell of Fannett, her brother Stephen B. Graef, sister Jeanette Young, her children: Julia King of Creedmoor, Hal Scott and wife Debora of San Angelo, Craig Scott and wife Burnell of Austin, Wesley Scott and wife Shannon of Austin, 11 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Martha will be immensely missed by her family and those closest to her.

The family would like to thank two special caregivers and companions during her time in Beaumont, Ethel Mae Mire and Beatrice Joseph, whose service and dedication are much appreciated.
