Obituary of Alta Muriel Scott
On June 20, 2019 Alta Muriel (Colpitts) Scott was finally reunited with her beloved husband Scotty. Alta was born on July 10,1935 in Parleeville, N.B. She was the daughter of Nellie Dole and Frank Colpitts.
Alta's passions were her family, baking, listening to country music (especially George Jones), collecting brooches and working with her friends in the cafeteria at Saint Joseph's Hospital. Whenever, Alta was asked "How are you?" her response was always "TERRIBLE THANK YOU!" Alta and Scotty loved their trip to Nashville and always looked forward to the yearly Fearon Family Reunion in Moncton.
Alta was a proud and loving grandmother to Tara Scott (Dave Hill) Rothesay N.B., Kala Hirtle Halifax N.S. and Kristian Hirtle Lantz N.S. Alta took great joy in interacting and imaginative play with her great grandchildren Rylund, Jacob, Shandi and Charisma. She was a very special Aunt Alta to Barbara, Linda, Brian, Frankie, Karen, Adam, Sean and Jamie.
Alta is survived by her daughter Wanda Hirtle (Scott) Lantz N.S., son Andy Stuart (Joy) Oromocto N.B. and brother Sam Colpitts (Fran) French Village N.B.
Alta was predeceased by her husband of 53 years Frank (aka Scotty) Scott, daughter Pamela Scott, brothers; Donald, John, and Bill Colpitts, sisters; Ann Williams, Marie Mather and Joan Colpitts, nephew Jamie Colpitts and her special feline companion Soda.
