Elizabeth Pringle Scott

November 19, 1948 — March 21, 2024

Elizabeth Pringle Scott of Bryan, Texas passed away March 21, 2024, in Carlsbad, New Mexico surrounded by her two loving daughters.

Welcoming her home into the gates of heaven was her parents, Thomas Towles Barret Lyne and Emily Evelyn Lyne, and her “Old Fool”, Richard L. Scott.

She was born November 19, 1948, in Dallas, Texas to Thomas Lyne and Emily Lyne.  Growing up in Dallas, Houston and finally Bryan, Texas.

Elizabeth graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School in 1966. She then went on to Texas Christian University where she studied Languages and Art History from 1966 to 1967. After much coaxing by her grandfather, George E. Adams, and his influence at Texas A&M, she would soon join and graduate as one of the first class of women to graduate from an all-male school.  

While studying at A&M, she and one of her classmates who became lifelong friends, Vancy Manning, established a student magazine featuring the women on campus.

Elizabeth graduated in December of 1970 with her Bachelors in journalism from Liberal Arts and a Bachelors in Marketing from the Business School.  

She met her “Old Fool”, Richard Scott, on a double date with Doug, his best friend, and his girlfriend, Ruth. Richard and Elizabeth later married and had two daughters, Jennifer and Katie. Divorcing in 1980, she became a single mother.

While living in Bryan, she got a job at St. Joseph Hospital as a public relations and marketing director. She became a valuable asset to the hospital, raising money to be able to provide them with the latest technology that was available. She also started many programs such as the Heavenly Bundle, Wonder Wow, Brazos Bash, and so many more that continue on at the hospital. While working full time at St. Joseph, she also served on many boards in the community such as Twin City Missions, Phoebes Home, and St. Andrews, as she was a lifelong member.  

After parting from St. Josephs in 1997, she started working at University Hills Nursing Home (97-99) and Crestview Nursing Home (02-03). She then went on to buy T.V. Facts community magazine after Bubba Moore’s passing from 2004-2008 to then retiring and becoming a substitute teacher for BISD.

One of Elizabeth’s greatest joys was becoming a Gammy to her six grandkids. Being Gammy was her favorite title of all as she spoiled and could never get enough time with her grandbabies.

She was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia with Parkinsons in 2021 and this is what eventually took her away mentally and physically until her passing.  

Elizabeth will be sorely missed by her "BBB", baby brother Barret, Thomas Barret Lyne Jr.; her daughters, Jennifer Bryan Cole and family Barry, Bailey, Emily, and Tinley Cole, and Katherine Elizabeth Lickliter and family Nicolas, Colton, Haley and William Lickliter; and great-grandson Bowen Oakes Lickliter.  

The family would like to extend their appreciation to Navasota Nursing and Rehabilitation, The Good Life of Carlsbad New Mexico, Enhabit Home Health, and Hospice of Carlsbad New Mexico.
