Rebecca Anne Scott Johnson


Rebecca Anne Scott Johnson, at the age of 95, (Sept. 20, 1928 - April 25, 2024), passed from her earthly home at Brookdale Assisted Living in Brighton, Colo., to her eternal heavenly home after suffering from congestive heart failure.

Anne was born in Washington, Ga., to Leon Harold Booker and Annie Rachel Butler Booker. She had one older sibling, Leon Harold Booker Jr. At the age of 4 her family moved to Texas County, Okla., near Guymon in the panhandle of Oklahoma. She not only lived through the Depression, but also the Dust Bowl. 

She and her brother rode double on a horse to a one-room school house during their early elementary school years, and later she graduated from Guymon High School at the age of 16. After high school she attended business school and junior college in Hutchinson, Kan.

In 1948 she married her high school sweetheart, Clyde Eugene “Gene” Scott. They had two children, Mary Anne and David. In 1958 they moved from Guymon to Center, Colo. During their marriage she helped on the potato and barley farm, was an actively involved sports mom, and also worked a number of years at the Center Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation office.

She and Gene built a cabin at Pearl Lakes Trout Club near Creede, Colo., in 1969, and it became a special place for the whole family to enjoy. Many happy years of fishing, hiking and snowmobiling were spent there. She was a great fisherwoman and passed her love of fishing on to all her grandchildren.

In 1984 she and Gene retired to Fountain Hills, Ariz. Due to his deteriorating health, they moved to Canon City, Colo., in 1990 to be closer to family. After his passing she became reacquainted with a high school classmate, Tom Randol. They married and lived in Meridian, Idaho, until his death. She later married Harry Johnson, whom she also outlived. 

In 2015 she moved to Pagosa Springs to be near her daughter. Then in 2019 she relocated to Loveland, Colo., to live at the Wexford, an independent senior living facility, and be near her son. She made many special friends at the Wexford. While there she learned to play pool and became quite an accomplished player. Even after moving to Brookdale Assisted Living in Brighton, Colo., she stayed in touch by texting and FaceTiming her family and friends on a regular basis.

Anne traveled to many foreign locations during her lifetime, including Tahiti, London, Greece, Egypt, Turkey and the Holy Land.

She was a loving mom, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother, and was affectionately called Granny Great. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Mary Anne and Richard Stone and her son David Scott; as well as her four grandchildren: Mike Scott (Kristie), Amy Scott, Kevin Stone (Natalie) and Matt Stone (Shannon); great-grandchildren Meghan Scott, Ashley Garetson (Jared), Anthony Scott, Cody and Lucas Muirhead, Ethan and Elizabeth Stone, Lucy Willing (Luke), Lily and Carolanne Birchfield, Nolan and Lucy Stone; and great-great-grandson Jettson Garetson. She is also survived by five nieces, one nephew and their families.

Anne loved the Lord, acknowledged His faithfulness, and looked forward to her home-going. Her ashes will be buried near her husband, Gene Scott, in Canon City, Colo., at Lakeside Cemetery.
