The third daughter of eight girls, she received her elementary education at Palmer Memorial Institute (Founded by Dr. Charlotte Hawkins Brown) and Sedalia High School. Her early career interest was nursing. As a young woman, she met and married John E. Scott. To this union two sons were born, Geoffrey Andre and Adisson Alfonso Scott. She worked at Moses Cone Hospital fourteen and one-half years in the Central Supply Department becoming one of the first black females in a supervisory position.

    We have delivered Mobile Meals to Daisy for the last few years and always loved her sweet smile and precious outlook on life. We will miss her, but know that she is now with Jesus and those in her beloved family who have gone before her.

    To the -Daisy Cummings Scott Family: I extend my condolences to the immediate family and to all who knew and loved Daisy on the loss of your love one. Death is not always something we are prepared for and it can be a complexity of emotion and stress when it happens. My Prayers are with the immediate and extended family. I’m leaving you with this comforting scripture.2 Corinthians 1: 3,4 (Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, (4) who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.)
