Joy A. Scott, 77, of Libby, MT passed away Saturday, November 19, 2022 at the Libby Care Center of natural causes. She was born January 13, 1945 in Eureka, MT to John William and Clara (Beaurdy) LaRoque. She graduated from Columbia Falls High School. Joy married Lloyd A. Scott in Columbia Falls on January 17, 1964.
Joy was a hard worker and that was evident from a young age. In her youth, she began helping her mother care for 2 sisters who were born with severe health issues and were unable to care for themselves. Following the loss of her mother, Joy stepped up and took over full care of her sisters and continued that until her health prevented it. She also managed the Record Rack for the Krull’s. She and Lloyd had a place on Bull Lake where they parked their camper and spent time together and with family. That was a special place for her and she always said that someday the grandkids could have it. Joy also enjoyed sewing and she was an excellent cook. She had quite the collection of cookbooks! However, her greatest joy was found in being with her family. She is forever in their hearts and will be missed by them all. Joy was preceded in death by a son, Thomas Scott; parents, John and Clara LaRoque; 3 brothers; and 1 sister.
Survivors include her husband Lloyd of Libby; sons Timothy A. Scott of Libby, Tyler J. (Lisa) Scott of Columbia Falls, and Travis D. Scott of Missoula; grandchildren Isaac Scott and Mac Scott; sister Lena LaRoque of Eureka; and numerous nieces and nephews. Services for Joy will be 1:00 p.m. Saturday, December 3, 2022 at the Schnackenberg Funeral Home Chapel, 422 W. 2nd St, in Libby. Interment will follow at the City of Libby Cemetery. Arrangements are under the care of Schnackenberg Funeral Home. Online condolences and memories may be shared by visiting www.schnackenbergfh.com.
