Barbara Scott Terrell

June 18, 1939 — January 29, 2024


Barbara Scott Terrell, a woman known for her strength and determination, passed away on January 29, 2024 at her home, surrounded by her devoted family.

Born on June 18, 1939, in Alamance County, she was daughter of Henry I. Scott and Irene Wood, who precede her death. Barbara was a force for her family, loving them through hard times and providing them with everything she could.  She had a green thumb and found solace in working in her yard, and meticulously maintained a neat and beautiful home. She also loved bluegrass music, especially her favorite band, Tim Rice and the Buttermilk Creek Band, and attended so many of their shows that Tim would often recognize her from the stage. One of Barbara's proudest accomplishments was the daily display of the American flag outside her house. Rain or shine, she never failed to protect it from the elements. This act represented her unwavering patriotism and deep love for her country.  In addition to her parents, Barbara was preceded in death by her sister, Ann Davis, and her brothers, Melvin Scott and Gary Butner.

Left to cherish her memory are her two sons, Mike Young and Steven Young and wife Beverly; special stepdaughter, Kimberly T. Scott; and her beloved cat, Miss Kitty.

To honor Barbara's life and all the cherished memories she provided us with, there will be a visitation held at Lowe Funeral Home & Crematory on February 2nd, 2024. The visitation will take place between 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM, allowing family and friends to come together in shared remembrance. 

While Barbara may no longer be with us physically, her spirit will forever live on in our hearts. We fondly remember the loving mother, the determined woman, and the caring friend she was to all who knew her. As we say our goodbyes, let us also celebrate the beautiful life she led and the impact she made on each of our lives.
