Aly’ce Margaret (Green) Scott, age 92, passed away October 5, 2020 in Shawnee, Oklahoma. She was born August 9, 1928 in Stratford, Oklahoma to parents William Hawkins (Hawkeye) Green and Mary Agnes (Bouska) Green. She was baptized in 1928 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Konawa, Oklahoma and attended school at St. Mary’s Academy-Sacred Heart in Konawa, Oklahoma. She married James Wendell (J.W.) Scott on June 22, 1961 and they were married for 45 years before he passed away on October 18, 2006.
Aly’ce was a bookkeeper for Walls Department Store in Shawnee, Oklahoma in the 1950’s and early 60’s, then upon marrying J.W., she became a housewife and bookkeeper for their Whiskey Hill Ranch and owned and operated the Lemon Tree Antique Store at Sylvian, Oklahoma in northeast Seminole County.
Her greatest accomplishment was making her husband J.W. happy with delicious home cooked meals and a clean home. She was self-educated after the 8th grade and did not get the chance to go to high school due to family circumstances. She regretted not receiving a high school diploma, but you couldn’t tell she was not educated because she was always reading and studying and was up to date on current affairs. When she was in her 60’s she decided to set for her GED and passed with flying colors. She won a baking contest for Pecan Crust Apple Pie and it is published in a favorite cooking magazine. She enjoyed playing with her grandchildren, sending cards to friends, gardening, crossword puzzles, cooking, entertaining friends and family, music and reading. She and J.W. loved to travel to Arkansas for weekend getaways and always enjoyed a good country and western band at a street dance or at their own backyard when they would host yearly get togethers at their ranch for the community.
Left to cherish her memory are her daughter; Laura Susan Scott Kincade Miller and her husband Rick, granddaughters; Khara Elisabeth Suzanne Criswell Schuetzner and her husband Gabriel, Kendell Erin Kincade Miller and her husband Brett and Khanaa Scott Kincade Langrehr and her husband Ryon, great-grandchildren; Lynzie Hayze Langrehr, Sadie Blake Miller and Rowelz Ryon Langrehr and a host of nieces, nephews and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, William H. & Mary A. Bouska Green, her husband J.W. Scott, her children; Sheri Sue Veitenheimer Criswell and Gary Veitenheimer, great-grandson; Blake Austin Miller, brothers; Joseph Green, David Green, Johnny Green and sisters; Marie Green Veitenheimer, Catherine Green Kuestersteffen and Annette Green Miller.
