Carol Scott

June 6, 1961 ~ May 11, 2018 (age 56)

Carol Lynn Scott was born on June 6th, 1961 in Portland, Oregon to Henry B. Scott, Sr. and Judy Thompson, at Emmanuel Hospital. At a young age Carol and her brother Henry Scott moved in with their Aunt and Uncle Bernice and James Noble. Carol, who was more like a daughter, was welcomed with open arms to their home when she needed a place of comfort, love and motherly guidance. Bernice and James Noble had one son, Jimmy Noble, Jr who inherited a little sister in Carol.  She loved growing up in this household learning to cook and mature as a woman. Carol had many other aunts and uncles she looked up to like Aunt Ethel and Shirley who always kept it real and would tell you exactly what they thought and helped guide her thru life circumstances. As a kid Carol was very smart, outgoing and beautiful. In 1974 she won the junior Miss Black Oregon Pageant at age 13.

Carol attended Madison High School for two years and transferred to Parkrose where she later graduated in 1979. Carol excelled at sports and cheerleading while she attended both schools. She loved to dress nice (like Bernice), dance and listen to music. In fact, she referred to herself as Sweet “C” in her year books. Classic Carol…After graduating Carol began working in the family business, Coast Industries. There she worked in multiple roles alongside family where she enjoyed helping the business succeed.

Carol was 20 when she had her first of three sons in 1981, Nathaniel McCoy III. She loved having a son and named him after his father. In fact, she did that with all three son’s she had. Her next oldest son, Charles Taylor-Love was born in 1992 and the youngest, Anthony Hill-McCoy came 1998. Carol’s world was complete after that, she cherished her time with her family, especially time spent with her son’s.  She would brag about their accomplishments to everyone and anyone who would listen. She would say things like, “Nate is at U of O and he’s an architect, Charles design’s shoes for a living, Anthony is the biggest star.”  She was present in all of their lives and would call daily, multiple times if needed, just to check on you and always finished the conversations with “I LOVE YOU and I’M PROUD OF YOU”.

Carol was very loving and family oriented, she placed only Jesus above family.  She was very close with her cousins, Bernadette, Linda and Sharon, and she professed her favorite being, Bernadette.  She loved getting dressed up for Thanksgiving dinner and looked forward to spending time with her beloved family members surrounded by good food and laughter.  Carol loved going to church and praised God for the life she had and the time shared with family.

Carol is survived by her sons, Nathaniel McCoy III (Melissa), Charles Taylor-Love, and Anthony Hill-McCoy; two grandchildren; four brothers, three sisters and innumerable friends.
