Jeanne Marie Scott


Jeanne Marie Scott died June 14 in Ventura. She was 79 years old.

Born Feb. 25, 1930 in Chicago to Bill and Estelle McDonough, Scott married Edward Dore at the age of 17 and moved to Culver City a few years later, where they had two children. They then built a house in Malibu and moved into the Carbon Mesa home in 1956 before having four more children. While living in Malibu, Scott was an active member of Our Lady of Malibu parish, Malibu Little League and La Costa Beach Club.

In 1976 she moved to Oxnard and volunteered at the Channel Islands National Park Visitor Center and Community Memorial Hospital. After her husband’s death in 1998, Scott remarried Bill Scott in 2001.

Scott is survived by her husband, Bill Scott; her four children, Jeanne, Tom, Michelle, Patrick (and his wife Kristie); 11 grandchildren; and sister, Peachie.

A funeral Mass in Scott’s honor took place Saturday at Our Lady of Malibu Church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation,
