Cynthia Jean Scott

May 4, 1949 - June 13, 2022


Cynthia passed away peacefully at the Cowichan District Hospital, Duncan, British Columbia, on Monday, June 13, 2022. She was predeceased by Father, Walter (Scottie) William Scott in November of 2000, Mother, Joyce Nena Scott in June 2001, Brother, Carl Walter Scott in May of 2000, Sister, Marilyn Joyce Shainline in April 2018, and Nephew, Zachary Michael Andrews in October 2015. Cynthia leaves to mourn Sister, Diane Carol Scott Zeck, Brother, Ricky William Scott, both of Duncan, many nieces, nephews and relatives across Canada, especially in Newfoundland, and many friends.

Cynthia was born in Grand Falls, Newfoundland on May 4, 1949 and moved with her family to Duncan, British Columbia in 1965. She completed Grade 13 at Cowichan Senior Secondary School in Duncan and Graduated from St. Joseph’s Nursing School as a Registered Nurse, working at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Victoria, Victoria General Hospital in Victoria, and Cowichan District Hospital in Duncan. Cynthia loved her career as a Nurse where she helped a myriad of citizens as well as cared for her Mother and Father who were both blessed to die at home under Cynthia’s tender loving care. All of her family has been blessed by her nursing skills and even after her retirement in 2007, her family continued to receive advisement and blessings from her vast skills in the medical profession.

Cynthia’s greatest quality in her life was her great love for animals. She loved to sit at her window and watch the birds and squirrels who frequented her back yard daily and the hummingbirds who visited the many feeders around her house. The loves of her life where her dogs and cats, namely: Oakley, Heidi, Piper, Morgan and Gizmo (Gizzy). Every day Cynthia would take her dogs to Rotary Park by the Cowichan River and she always brought a bag of Grade A Roast Beef cooked to Medium Rare and cut up into half inch cubes for any and all dogs at the Park whose owners’ would allow her to treat. The dogs were so familiar with her that they recognized her from long distances and would run at full speed to great her and receive their treat. It was a joy for the dogs as well as Cynthia’s daily delight. Even after Cynthia’s pets passed away, she continued to walk the paths with her treats for all the dogs. This she did up until her health would no longer allow her to do so, but rest assured, her heart was then and ever will be at Rotary Park with her doggy pals and their owners. She loved them all with all her heart. Cynthia will be sorely missed by them all.

By Cynthia’s request, there will not be a memorial, and flowers are gratefully declined. Anyone wishing to make a donation in Cynthia’s memory may do so to the Cowichan District Hospital or the local SPCA.

Relation: From Rotary Park

When I first met Cynthia I was a new dog walker and had thrown my dog ball over the fence in error. Although Cynthia didn’t know me her big heart kicked into gear and she hustled back to her car to fetch a new ball for my pal Sid. From that moment forward my dogs, Sid and Dozer ran with great excitement when Cynthia arrived with her package of treats. RIP my friend.

Relation: Cousin

Diane and Ricky I was so saddened to hear of Cynthia’s passing. Although I have not seen her in many years, every time our family visited she always treated us so well. She was such a wonderful and fun loving person. I did correspond with her every Christmas and so looked forward to hearing from her. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you both and all the family.

I worked with Cynthia @ CDH & walked with Cynthia @ Rotary Park.
Cynthia was an exceptional, kind & caring Nurse. Always a pleasure to work along side Cynthia.
The dog walkers always knew when Cynthia had arrived. The dogs could be strolling along, see Cynthia & the young & old dogs would run as fast as they could to her. Our Porter would even stop as we passed the car park area to check if her car was there.
Cynthia will be greatly missed by all who knew her, especially the dogs, their owners & the crow @ Rotary Park.
RIP Cynthia

I was so sorry to hear of Cynthia’s passing. She and I worked together for many years and I have many special memories of our time together. She will be missed and her kindness remembered.
With sincere condolences

From: Sharron Keetley and Eric Brown
Relation: Friend

Our deepest condolences to Cynthia’s family. I worked with Cynthia at CDH and once we retired we walked our dogs at Rotary park. We were all like family walking our dogs daily with the 8 -9 am group. When Cynthia arrived the dogs could sense it and it was a mad dash for them all to race to her and try and wait sitting to receive the roast beef treats! She also had some of the roast beef treats for her pet crows and families!! She left the treats up high or in the tennis courts for them, and they followed her around the park! We will miss her terribly but so glad to have spent the walking times together.
