Betty Elaine Scott was born to George Thomas and Argerine Scott on February 24, 1933. She was the 3rd of 11 children. Her and James Patrick Hendricks were united in Holy Matrimony on April 2, 1954. During that marriage they had four children, Debra “Carol,” James “Michael,” Eric “Randel,” and David “Scott.” She was lovingly known as Elaine, Mother, Momma, Aunt Elaine, Grandma, and Great-Grandma. She willingly and lovingly, without hesitation, made so many sacrifices for her family. Her family always came first. She enjoyed basketball in high school. In her younger years and not so younger years, she enjoyed bowling and playing softball. She loved reading and cooking was always a passion. She had hundreds of novels and cookbooks at her house. Elaine worked at Bell South then later at Western Electric as a layout operator where she retired. Elaine was a very loving and devoted wife, mother, daughter, and daughter-in-law. There was almost nothing she couldn’t do. She was a seamstress and fabulous top-notch cook, baker, and well known for her peanut brittle during Christmas among several other dishes. She didn’t shy away from a hammer, saw, power tools, shovel, post hole diggers, lawn mower, tiller, or even working under the hood of a car. One of the things she became passionate about was genealogy, searching her family history and tracing her lineages. Not only did this include on-line searches but visiting cemeteries and locating grave sites. She would also search for some of her in-law’s family tree. She always enjoyed having a full house of family and friends! Thanksgiving will always be remembered at her house by many, as there would be up to 70-90 family members and a few tag-along friends. Thanksgiving night would start the first night of the game of Booray with “the sisters” as everyone else would refer to them. There were so many times of endless laughter when “the sisters” got together and so many endless fun memories at Pat and Elaine’s house that will always be cherished by many.
