Penny Sue Scott was born September 12, 1967 in Devils Lake to Elmer and Grace (Borgen) Scott. She grew up in the Hannah area and attended school there for seven years before going to Border Central High School in Calvin, graduating in 1985. She continued her education at NDSU and graduated in 1990 with a degree in Clinical Dietetics. She started her career at Mercy Hospital in Owensboro, Ky. in 1990. She worked there until 1995 when she started working at Welborn Baptist Hospital in Evansville, Ind. A majority of her working years was spent in Amarillo, Texas where she worked as a clinical dietitian in the kidney dialysis unit. Due to health issues, she returned to North Dakota and had lived in Langdon the last two years. When she was younger, she attended Camp Sioux Diabetes Camp for many years and then became a camp counselor after high school. She loved her two dogs and felt they were part of her family. She always thought of others before herself and wanted to be an organ donor. She was always a very happy person even though she had many health issues due to her diabetes.  The last two years had been hard for her because she couldn’t work, missed her doctors in Texas, and longed for the warm weather she had become used to.

Surviving Penny are her parents; aunts and uncles: Linda (Bob) Lill, Bob (Patricia) Scott, Ella (Steve) Bulat, Mary (Gary) Haugland, Jean (Tom) Cleary, Lorraine (Gaylord) Weiner, Ole (Sharon) Borgen, Douglas (Linda) Borgen, Mary (Terry) Krohn, Ron (Susie) Borgen; and many cousins.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents: Robert and Velma Scott, William Borgen, Mary Jordan and uncles David Scott and Larry Borgen.
