Sally and family -- I was brokenhearted when I recently heard of Erin's passing, but also rejoice at knowing she is forever celebrating and restored to perfect health in Heaven. I am grateful for the incredible faith of your family knowing that alone will sustain you in the days ahead. I am so thankful to have known such an incredible young lady. My main memory of Erin was that she was always so bubbly and joyful! She would light up any room with her beauty and that smile. Sally -- Erin was such a wonderful reflection of you. Beautiful inside and out, servant hearted, kind,loyal,strong in her faith, and hard working. I remember how you always made time for the kids at JVHS no matter how busy you were, just as Erin did. I am sure countless lives have been touched and strengthened by the journey your family has been on these past few years. Please remember how very loved you are....even by people you havent crossed paths with in many years. Many hugs,
Psalm 116:15 "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints".....and Erin was certainly one of His saints!
Erin Marie Scott, 24, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her parents, brother, and dear friends on Thursday, June 14, 2012, following a courageous year-long battle with colon cancer.
Erin was born on March 29, 1988, in Houston and graduated from Jersey Village High School in 2006. While undergoing cancer treatments she showed her spirit and determination by completing her Bachelor of Healthcare Administration degree at Texas State University, finishing with an internship at Methodist Hospital - Willowbrook.
Erin is survived by her brother Patrick Scott, parents Neal and Sally Scott; son Nathan Scott Gutierrez and his loving parents, Oscar and Susan Gutierrez, and his sister Makenzie Gutierrez; grandmother Marie Robichaux; grandfather Robert Scott; uncles Don Robichaux, Larry Robichaux and wife Jane, Gary Scott, and David Scott; aunts Gayle Poe, and Lori Corse and husband George; cousins Christine Coe and husband Jason, Pamela Henrichson, husband Shane and daughters Serenity and Elizabeth, Joseph Robichaux, April McCluskey and husband Willis and son Willie, Carrolyne Robichaux and children Alyssa and Joseph Cooke, Michelle Robichaux, Sarah Robichaux, Kelly Scott, and Brian Scott. Erin was preceded in death by her grandfather Joseph Robichaux and grandmother Betsy Scott.
Erin recently quoted something she'd read... “When it hurts to look back, and you’re afraid to look ahead, look beside you, and there will be your friends.” She was truly blessed to have made many wonderful friends whose love, prayers and support were sources of joy and encouragement to her and to her family through the struggles of this past year.
A memorial service to celebrate the life of Erin Scott will be held at The Foundry United Methodist Church in Jersey Village on Sunday afternoon, June 24th, at 3:00 pm. The church is located at 8350 Jones Road, just north of US 290. A reception in the Fellowship Hall will be held immediately following the service.
The family wishes to express its appreciation and gratitude to Dr. Mina Sinacori; Dr. Cathy Eng, Aki Ohinata and the staff at MD Anderson Cancer Center; the nurses and staff of Memorial-Hermann Hospice; and to all our family and friends who cared so lovingly for Erin throughout her struggle.
