Mary looked at the obituaries everyday and I would always ask why she did that. I never thought I would be reading hers. Mary was a friend, co-worker and sidekick. We would always say neither one of us could work with anyone else. My constant prayers for her family. She loved and talked about all of you always. I will miss her calls home to ask Tim what they were having for dinner. Our special children who went before now have their teacher back.She was one of a kind. I love her and there will be a part of the world now that will be incomplete. God take good care of our Mary until we meet again.

Mary Scott was a big personality. She talked big. She loved big. She laughed big. She was the most sarcastic, funny and big-hearted woman I have had the pleasure of knowing. Mary never knew a stranger. Her love for her family and church was well known and her love for our students was undeniable. Her family should be proud. Mary Scott made a significant difference in so many children's lives. I am blessed to have worked with her and to have called her friend.

Dear Flynn Family, It is with great sadness that I write to you, but with great gladness to celebrate a life that was lived for others in service--especially for the mentally and physically handicapped young people of Winston-Salem, including my son Matthew and his friends. Mary was a great blessing to so many people in her field, both at Horizons and at Lowrance School. She gave willingly of her time and talent to " the least of these our brethren." Great will be her reward in Heaven! Praise God for her life! Nancy H. Corriher

So sorry to hear of Mary's passing I'll always remember the good times we had at work over the years she had a smile on her face every day and always cared for the children at Horizons and I remember her coming to see me at hospital when I had my daughter and she'd say that what long legs the baby had but she was beautiful and then when my mom passed in 2000 she gave me the news and came to funeral home but the last little get together we had from horizons was at Tobaccoville park a few yrs back that was an enjoyable time so therefore I'm thsnkful that I got a chance to work with an amazing person as she was so may god comfort you in the days and years to come Teresa Pack

My thoughts and prayers are with Tim and all of Mary's family. I worked with Mary for many years at Horizons, and she loved and cared for all of the children as if they were her own. She was a wonderful person, and I am so sad that she left us so young.
Patricia Trippe
Alma, our hearts are filled with sadness at the loss of your dear sister Mary, however, at the same time we are rejoicing that she is now with the many that went before her and are welcoming her with open arms. Prayers will continue to come for your and your family. Know that we are here for your support during this time. Prayers.

Wonderful Mary with a hearty laugh that was infectious. I too worked with Mary for many years at Horizons and was lucky to have known her. Although time passed and we all disconnected, I was able to keep up with some of Mary's words through others. With kind thoughtful condolences for her family. Sheryl E

God will sustain you with his "right hand of righteousness" during this difficult time. Isaiah 41:10 says: "Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness". Isaiah 41:13; I "am grasping your right hand, the One (God) saying to you,...'I will help you'". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you!(Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
