Ona Marie (Gossett) Scott, was born August 15, 1933, in Clarinda, Iowa and she passed away on November 21, 2018, at Elm Heights Nursing Home in Shenandoah, Iowa. Ona Marie is the daughter of Allen and Leone (Owen) Gossett. She grew up in the Hawleyville and Clarinda areas, receiving her education at the Olive Branch School and Clarinda High School where she graduated and then attended college. In 1959, she was united in marriage to Donald Scott in Clarinda. The couple farmed in the Randolph, Imogene and Shenandoah areas. They were blessed with the birth of two daughters, Kathy and Connie.

Besides being a farmwife, Ona Marie’s working career took her to Boulder, Colorado for the Esquire Magazine; Mutual of Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska; Midwest Benefit and Henry Fields in Shenandoah. She also worked for Williams Funeral Home in Clarinda and babysat with Dr. Don and Janet Bumgarner’s children, BJ and Jessica, when they first came to town. She did lots of other babysitting including her granddaughters. She also loved seeing her great-grandchildren. She was a member of the O.D.O. Club; Rook Club; and Happy Thought Club.

Left to cherish Ona Marie’s memory are her two daughters, Kathy Lightfoot and husband Robert of Shenandoah, Iowa; and Connie Sheehan and husband Jeff of Omaha, Nebraska; two granddaughters, Trisha Gawley and husband John of Ralston, Nebraska; and Sister Faustina (Megan) Lightfoot of Waverly, Nebraska; two great-grandchildren, Michael Robert Gawley (4) and Julia Marie Gawley (3 months); along with many other family members, friends, and her loving caregivers.

Preceding Ona in death are her parents Allen and Leone Gossett and her husband Donald in 2010.

May God grant comfort and strength to those who mourn Ona Marie’s passing.
May she be at peace in God’s loving care.
