Julia Ashberry Scott, 91, formerly of College Station, passed from this life on Monday, May 15, 2017 in Hemphill, Texas. A funeral service is scheduled for 11:00 AM, Saturday, May 20, 2017 at Parkway Baptist Church. Interment will follow at College Station Cemetery.

She was preceded in death by her husband of sixty-six years, Gerald Scott, her son Robert Scott, her parents Joseph and Bernice Ashberry, her sisters Jeanne Nowak, Ellen Brown, Jo Slate, and her brother Gordon Ashberry.

Julia is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Jeannie and Ralph Logan, her son and daughter-in-law Tom and Sheila Scott, her daughter and son-in-law Julie and Harley Clark along with twelve grandchildren and nineteen great grandchildren and a sister, Ruth Orchard.

Julia was born February 8, 1926 into a large family in San Marcos, Texas. She was the second and unexpected identical twin, the fifth child of six. Julia grew up learning the love of God, Family, and the Great Texas Outdoors. She and her sisters were well acquainted with camping, swimming, and fishing the San Marcos and Blanco rivers. She spent many hours with her sisters playing dominoes, especially 42, and passed that fun and interest on to her husband and her children. Her Texas roots went deep and strong.

Julia met Gerald, the love of her life, when he was stationed at Camp Gary Army Air Corp training facility on the outskirts of San Marcos. She and her sister, Jeanne, were life guards at the San Marcos pool and when she met Gerald, she knew he would be special in her life. They married on December 20, 1945 and she went with him back to Tennessee for him to finish his engineering studies at the University of Tennessee. Seventeen years went by before she finally had an opportunity to follow her heart back to Texas. She and her family lived in the Spring Branch area of Houston until they moved to College Station in 1975. She felt blessed to be back close to her sister Jeanne and loved the small town feel of this town, her home.

Julia and Gerald were always faithful Christians who placed their membership and service with the Parkway Baptist Church where they felt like family. Julia's life was rich with faith, family, and serving others.

In the last few years, Julia's awareness of her life and memories failed; her attachment to living became weaker and her interest in this world waned. She finally went home, she was surrounded by people who loved and cared for her. She was blessed.
