Fawnda Scott

Fawnda Lynn Scott (Wilcox), age 64, of Perrysburg, passed away on Sunday evening, February 5. 

Born in Manistique, Mich., on August 10, 1958 to Raymond and Constance Willcox, as a child she was very creative and ambitious. She graduated from Penta High School and went on to get certified as an X-ray technician, dialysis technician and medical assistant. She met William Eugene Scott at Penta and their romance began. After only a little over a year and a half, they got married on June 14, 1977 – and continued that love with seven children. 

Fawnda was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. She gave so much of her life to others. Working as a dialysis technician and X-ray technician, she helped so many people. She will be truly missed, always loved and never forgotten. All of those happy memories will continue to live within us and be told to keep your spirit alive. God gained the best angel he could’ve asked for. We love you mom.

She is survived by her husband, William Scott; children, Bobbi (Larry) Duvall, Hollie (Matt) Robinson, Billy (Kate Carew) Scott, Miranda (Brant) Kosbab and Heidi (Mike) Verbosky; sisters, Reeta Whitworth and Bonnie Bowen; brother, Raymond Wilcox; 12 grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles. She was preceded in death by her parents, Constance and Raymond Wilcox; and two little boys who both died at birth. We know they are happy to have you back with them again.

The family will hold a celebration of life service for her at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 11 at the West Clubhouse at 27696 Oregon Rd. in Perrysburg.
