Jessie L. Scott

Grew rhododendrons

Jessie L. Scott, who grew rhododendrons, azaleas and raised Hereford cattle with her husband at their Freeland farm, died Dec. 29 of a heart ailment at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Mrs. Scott, who was 79, moved to Freeland from Ruxton in 1965. She raised the plants in a semi-commercial nursery.

She came to Baltimore in 1946 when her husband, Dr. William W. Scott, now David Hall Professor Emeritus of Urology at the Johns Hopkins medical school, came to Baltimore to head its urology department.

The former Jessie McGraw was a native of El Dorado, Ark., and a 1935 graduate of the University of Missouri, where she won an oratorical medal. She also did field work in sociology and worked for a state social agency in Illinois before moving to the Baltimore area.

In addition to her husband, her survivors include a son, Dr. William W. Scott Jr. of Baltimore; a sister, Ethel Dunlap of El Dorado; and three grandchildren.
