Ethel (Sizemore) Scott, age 78, wife of Peter Scott, passed away Tuesday, December 10, 2013 in Anchorage, Alaska. Ethel was born February 17, 1935, in Leslie County, Kentucky. She was the daughter of the late Madge (Begley) Sizemore and the late Keen Sizemore. Ethel was a member of the Hillside Baptist Church. Ethel attended Oneida Baptist Institute, a Christian boarding school in Oneida, Kentucky, where she met Peter Scott. They were married in 1953 and moved to Alaska, where they, together, resided for 60 years. Ethel was passionately involved in the construction of Hillside Baptist Church in Alaska. She had a long career working as a waitress at Burnett's BBQ and Dairy Queen and as a store clerk at Southgate, George's Market and Tudor Market, among other businesses. She spent many hours tending to her raspberry patch. Ethel was very talented and a perfectionist at everything she did. She owned a craft shop and made many handmade items like beautiful Christmas ornaments, charming dolls (always with a heart), amazing sewing kits, remarkable decorated real geese and ostrich eggs, lovely pillow cases and many other crafts, which she sold at local craft shows and Bell's nursery. She enjoyed drives to Potters Marsh to view geese and she enjoyed whale-watching. She also liked dipnetting and would make the annual trek to Kenai with Peter, to catch fish for smoking and canning. Ethel is preceded in death by her parents; two infant children of her and Pete's: Ruth Ann and Debra Lynn Scott; siblings: one sister, Reba (Sizemore) Horton and three brothers: Estill Vernon, David and Monroe Sizemore; and two infant siblings: Mildred and William Sizemore. Ethel is survived by many loved ones, including her beloved husband and best friend, Pete; three daughters, *Pamela Rose Smith of Texas, Sharon Ann Dowler of Colorado and Katherine Jean Anderson of Alaska; one son: *Pete Rothel Scott of Alaska (*twins); sons-in-law: Michael Smith, David Dowler and Trent Anderson; and daughter-in-law: Tammie Smith. Ethel is also survived by five grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren: Steven Grinde (Hannah and Gabby); Georgiana Grinde Wannamaker (Ocean, *Genevieve *Leona, (*twins), Ella and Connor); Tonya Breuer (Alyssa and Zachary); Jeannie Emerson (Steven and Toby); and Christina Cooley. In addition, Ethel is survived by four sisters: Carolyn Asher, Fannie Mae Asher, Nancy Rose and Emma Lee Keen; three brothers: Johnnie, James and Troy Lee Sizemore; two brothers-in-law: Marvin Rose and David Wayne Keen and two sisters-in-law: Sally and Juanita Sizemore; A host of nieces, nephews, three aunts, one uncle and many other relatives and friends also survive Ethel. Ethel wanted to come home to Kentucky for sometime to visit family; now, she will be coming back home to Kentucky. She would call her family in the spring and ask, "Are the Sweet Williams in bloom, yet? She would always call on birthdays, holidays, in times of illnesses and crises and at other times just to talk and laugh with her family. She always send "CARE" packages to her family; getting a package from Ethel was like Christmas. She was always caring and giving to her church, her former school, her husband, her children, her grandchildren, her parents, her siblings and her friends. Ethel will always live on in the hearts of her family and her spirit continues to live on now in her Father's house with our Heavenly Father, God. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Oneida Baptist Institute; Oneida, Kentucky. The following will serve as pallbearers: Hershel Dean Asher, Hershel Dewayne Asher, David Wayne Keen, Keenus Sizemore and Buster Junior Woods.
