Jane Scott Obituary, Death – Jane Scott, 55, of Brownstown, died on January 14, 2023, at Sarah Bush Lincoln Hospital in Mattoon, Illinois. After a valiant struggle with cancer since 2017, she died quietly with her son by her side. Susan Scott Jane Scott was born on May 15, 1967, in Greenville, Illinois, to Ronald Harry and Deloris May (Nowlin) Scott.
After graduating from Mulberry Grove High School in 1986, she became a licensed nursing assistant and worked at BJC Homecare in St. Charles, Missouri, St. Louis, Missouri, and Vandalia, Illinois, where she was named employee of the month for her great patient care.
During her time with BJC Homecare, she was frequently acknowledged by her patients and family for her exceptional talent and compassion as a CNA. She subsequently attended cosmetology school and worked as a hairdresser for five years while still driving a school bus for the Brownstown school system.
She has been a warrior since an accident at her house in May of 2007, which left her paraplegic. Jane was a joyous person and friend with the biggest heart in the entire world. She had a strong work ethic and never complained. She enjoyed socializing and spending time with her family and friends.
She was a wonderful mother and friend who you were fortunate to have known. Her hobbies included gardening, crafting, and fishing, but her greatest delight in life was seeing her son, Dillon, grow into the amazing young man he is today.
The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to Jane’s great caretakers who helped her stay in her home over the years. Her parents, Ron and Deloris, preceded her in death. She is survived by her son, Dillon Holloway of Mahomet, IL, boyfriend, Kyle Schwarm of Brownstown, IL, niece, Kelly Hipsher of Vandalia; three great nieces and nephews; and sister, Sandy Stewart of Smithboro, IL.
Contributions in his memory may be made to the Fayette County Cancer Fund, P.O. Box 84, Vandalia, IL 62471. Because this facility was a special wish of Jane, the family requests that donations be made in place of flowers, plants, and other presents. The funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Assalley-Young Funeral Home in Greenville.
