Mary Ann Scrimgeour, age 84, passed on Monday, January 1, 2018.

Mary Ann Scrimgeour, age 84, passed on Monday, January 1, 2018, at her home in Prescott, Arizona, after a long, hard-fought battle against metastatic breast cancer. She was born in Silver Springs, Maryland, moved to Yuma, Arizona, in 1965 with her husband, Walter, and children. Then in 1988, Mary Ann and Walter moved to Prescott, Ariz. Mary Ann was a big game hunter in her earlier years. She enjoyed traveling to Alaska, Canada and New Zealand for her adventures. She was a skilled marksperson throughout her entire life. In her later years, Mary Ann turned to running races for fun and health. She completed numerous races in the Southwest, receiving medals for most that she entered. Her last race was at the age of 80 with a first place finish. Mary Ann loved being at their cabin, feeding the birds, taking care of the property, painting and, of course, weed whacking. Mary Ann is survived by her husband of 64 years, Walter Scrimgeour of Prescott, Ariz.; son, Mark Scrimgeour (Kathy Fox) of Yuma, Ariz.; daughter, Sandy Scrimgeour (Jim Alred) of Prescott; and sister and brothers in Maryland. Mary Ann’s son, Tom Scrimgeour, of Yuma, preceded her in passing. No services are planned at this time. Mary Ann was truly a beautiful, loving and generous soul. She remained strong, funny and a positive light for her family and friends until her last day on this earth. “If there ever comes a day when we cannot be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.” ~Winnie the Pooh
