Donald Scott

Artesian

Donald Scott, 93, of Artesian, died Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018, at Good Samaritan Society in Howard. Visitation will be from 3-5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18, at the Bittner Funeral Chapel in Mitchell with a 5 p.m. Scripture Service. Burial will be at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Artesian.

Donald K. Scott was born March 14, 1925, and graduated from high school in Artesian. 

On Dec. 10, 1949, he married Madonna Donahue, daughter of Ben and Maggie Donahue. They were the last couple married in the old Catholic Church in Artesian. Their family were members of St. Charles Catholic Church for their entire lives. After farming for a few years, the family moved into Artesian for the remainder of their lives.

Donald spent many years as a painter and paperhanger. He then became a truck driver for Minnesota-Wisconsin truck lines until his retirement.

His life was filled with humor, which he generously shared with anyone he met. He enjoyed polka, played the harmonica by ear, had a passion for chocolate, loved to tackle home projects and watched basketball games around the area with his son, Tom.

In late October, he entered Good Samaritan Home in Howard for rehabilitation, hopefully to gain strength enough to return to his home in Artesian. Instead, he became weaker and passed away quietly in his sleep on Nov. 7.

He is survived by his children, Vickie and Tom; three grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Donald was preceded in death by his wife, Madonna; sister, LaVonne McCart; parents, Maynard and Opal Scott; brothers-in-law, Wilmer Donahue, Ardell Donahue, Jerome Casey, Daryl Weable; and sister-in-law, LaVera Casey.
