Peg Scott lived a full life, with a strong determination to remain young and active until the end. On 10/27/2021, she finally yielded to the inevitability of growing old, and passed on at the age of 94.

Her desire to die peacefully in her own home surrounded by her family was granted. She is survived by her brother, Robert Bailey (Beth Schenck Bailey), and her daughters, Meredith Brown, Cindy Herndon (Fred Herndon), and Susan Reghi Kelsey (Ralph Kelsey); grandchildren, Jennifer Brown Chim (Khanh Chim), Meg Herndon (Marshall Gagne), Pam Herndon, and Nathaniel Herndon (Lauren Stephens Herndon), Danielle Reghi (Abe Hawkins) and Malia Reghi. She had seven great grandchildren (Isabella, Addison and Emma Chim, Thomas, Simon and Clare Gagne; and Liliana 'Awa Reghi).

   Peg grew up in Milford, NJ, and attended college at Earlham College, Richmond, IN. It was here that she met Richard Scott, also of NJ. They were married on the day of the “great blizzard”of December 27, 1947, and settled in Dick's hometown of Moorestown, NJ. They moved to the Rumson/FairHaven area in 1964 where they spent the remainder of their lives.

     Peg enjoyed golf, tennis, and sailing, and was a source of fun and laughter to those who enjoyed these activities with her. She was active as a Girl Scout leader, and enjoyed her employment at EpiCurious in Fair Haven, and Rumson Roulette in Rumson. She was best known to her children, though, as a mother who loved them to the end, and who, time and again, would stretch the limits of her comfort zone in order to share their lives, and the lives of her grandchildren.

     A Memorial Service will be held at the Rumson Presbyterian Church on Saturday, November 6 at 11:00am. Those unable to attend in person will be able to access a livestream at (upcoming services tab, or worship tab), or may find the service on the website at a later date.

     In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to (Rally for the 2 Rivers), or (National Tropical Botanical Gardens, Hawaii). Thompson Memorial Home, Red Bank, NJ, has been entrusted with the arrangements.
