The following obituary appeared in the August 1, 1935 edition of the Carter County Herald.

Mrs. Florence Duval-Scott born in Vanceburg, Lewis County, Kentucky, on December 19, 1877, 
passed to her reward at her home at McGlone, in Carter Co., Kentucky four miles east of Olive Hill 
on July 29, 1935, at the age of 57 years, 7 months and 20 days, after a lingering illness of years' duration, 
but which was not considered so serious until a few months ago, and which gradually grew worse from day to day 
until the end came, although all that medical skill and the hands of friends and loved ones could do was done.

In 1900 she was united in marriage to Walter Scott and moved to McGlone, where she lived until her death. 
She was always a good woman, and in early life she united with the Church of God and lived a devoted life for 
the cause of her Maker and with those whom she mixed and mingled her life was a light beaming forth for her associates 
to follow on with her. Mrs. Scott let the testimony that she was prepared to go, and welcomed the hour when Jesus would take her home.

Funeral services were conducted at the home Tuesday afternoon by Rev. Bob Kell, after which the remains were brought 
to the family burying ground east of this city {Olive Hill} and laid to rest. She leaves her husband, Walter Scott, 
two brothers, Chas. F. And August Duval, and Mrs. Annie Walters of Cincinnati, O., besides a host of relatives and friends.
