Kathryn Louise Scott, a retired educator who had taught Latin and geography at City College, died May 23 of respiratory failure at Roland Park Place, where she had lived for the past 12 years.

The former Inglewood Avenue resident was 99.

Kathryn Louise Gregory, the daughter of a federal government chief clerk and a homemaker, was born in Baltimore and raised in West Baltimore. The family later moved to the Alameda.

She was a 1930 graduate of the old Eastern High School at North Avenue and Broadway, and earned a bachelor's degree in 1934 from Goucher College.

She later received a master's equivalent, said her son, Charles G. Scott of Sykesville, and began teaching at Patterson Park High School.

After her children were in school, Mrs. Scott returned to teaching in the mid-1940s at Robert Poole Junior High School in Hampden, and during the 1950s and 1960s taught Latin and geography at City College.

At her retirement in 1971, she was on the faculty of Northern High School.

A Hamilton resident before moving to Roland Park Place, Mrs. Scott enjoyed vacationing for years at the old Oakwood Inn near St. Michael's.

She enjoyed playing bridge and completing crossword puzzles.

Mrs. Scott was a longtime member of Third Lutheran Church on Hillen Road.

Services were held Thursday.

Also surviving are a daughter, Ruth Miriam Mitchell of Roland Park; three grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. Her marriage to Charles E.P. Scott, a City College guidance counselor, ended in divorce.
