BONNIE JEAN SCOTT

Bonnie Jean (Robinson) Scott was born to Charlie and Lula Robinson in Houston, Texas on March 1, 1934. The youngest of 14 children.

Bonnie excelled in school, graduating at 15 and earning a masters degree at 19 from Texas Southern University. She married Ernest Scott on ​February 2, 1952​ and they enjoyed 51 years together.​

His career took them from Houston to Washington D.C. to San Francisco and eventually to Kirkland.

Bonnie is survived by her son Deino and his wife Lori of Kirkland, son Terrance also of Kirkland, granddaughter Dominique Jean Marie Scott of Seattle, sister Mardrie Turner of Sacramento, CA and sister Marie Blackmon of Houston, TX.

Bonnie loved gathering with family and friends for home cooked meals, the holidays or just enjoying good conversation. She was an outstanding cook who left no one in her house hungry. She will be remembered for her compassion, willingness to listen and the encouragement she offered to those in need.

Bonnie was a gifted educator and advocate for children, especially the marginalized. She dedicated her life to ensuring that students received a fair start and the foundation to succeed at the next level. She taught for 38 years including 25 at Medina Elementary.

In retirement some of her greatest pleasure came from time spent with her granddaughter Dominique, her sons and in chatting with her sisters and nieces. She will be dearly missed.

Her life will be celebrated at Seattle Prep High School on October 7, 2017 at 11:30 in the Theater Chapel, 2400 11th Ave. East in Seattle.
