Edna Earle Scott, 89, of Delaplane, passed away on December 8, 2018, at her home.
She was born May 16, 1929, in Loyall, Ky., to the late Fitzhugh L. and Stella N. Hill.
As a trailblazer, she was the first woman to be inducted into the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in the early 1970s. An avid sportswoman, she played in women’s baseball and basketball leagues until her mid-50s, as well as being the treasurer for the of Power Squadron, to help with her love of boating on the Chesapeake Bay. She was a huge football fan in general and was a supporter of the Washington Redskins. She believed in community service by assisting those in need through various organizations such as the Red Cross. Her passion for travel took her many parts of the world, from the Middle East to Europe, where she lived in Germany in the late 1980s. She was a proud of her heritage as her ancestors were fighting for the independence of this country and two small towns in Kentucky were named for her forefathers. Her family and her faith were the most important values in her life.

She was also preceded in death by two daughters, Pamela Ann Mahoney and Lee Elizabeth Scott.
