Letty Estelle Norman Scott

Letty Estelle Norman Scott, 88, left her earthly body on April 19. She was one of 10 children born to William T. and Annie Estelle Norman of Cumberland County. She attended Cumberland County Public Schools.

On April 21, 1950, she married Charles E. Scott. She assisted Charles as they made a home in Cumberland County, later in Charlottesville and Farmville and finally in Christiansburg. Cumberland was always her home.

She worked in manufacturing and retail. Letty was a courageous woman who was willing to take a risk. She learned to drive early to help the farm when other women were reluctant to get their licenses. She was a creative and artistic woman with many outlets. Her favorite pastime was visiting beaches and the local state park lake. She never knew a stranger and would engage in conversation with anyone and everyone. Letty believed that God put her on this earth to make people laugh and to have fun.

She was preceded in death by William T. and Estelle Norman, seven of her siblings and her beloved husband, Charles Scott.

Letty is survived by her daughter, Sharon G. Scott and husband, John Tutle; brothers, Ernest and Guy Norman and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Special thanks to her physician, Greg Beato, the English Meadows Team at Blacksburg and the team of healthcare providers at Lewis Gale Hospital – Montgomery for their care over the last four years.

Graveside services will be delivered on Friday, April 23, at 11 a.m. by Pastor Barry Vassar of Fitzgerald Baptist Church. Instead of flowers, the family requests contributions be made to Fitzgerald Baptist Church.
