Joyce Scott Obituary

Joyce Farley Scott, Pontotoc, a beloved wife, mother, sister, and grandmother, passed away on August 20, 2023, at the age of 71. She was born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, to John Albert Farley and Flora Tingles Farley, and her memory will forever be cherished by her family and friends.

Joyce is survived by her loving husband, Sam Scott, who stood by her side through thick and thin. She leaves behind a daughter, Lara Scott, and a son, Bradley Scott, both of whom she adored deeply. Joyce's nurturing spirit extended to her sisters, Pauline Tharp and Joe Ann Davidson, as well as her brother, James Farley. Her legacy continues through her five adoring grandchildren, who were the light of her life. Additionally, Joyce leaves behind a host of nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly.

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, John Albert Farley and Flora Tingles Farley Sikes, and her sister, Bernice Farley. Though they are no longer with us, their memories remain in the hearts of those who loved them.
