What she loved more than anything was spending time with her family and friends.  

May will be sadly missed by her three daughters: Dorothy Knowles of Salmon Beach, Betty Lou Street (Bill) of Bathurst and Mary Ellen Clouston (Percy) of Sussex. Daughter-in-law, Regena of Big River. Siblings Ellis (Bob) Pettigrew of Dalhousie and Nina Sanderson of Ontario. Also by numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.  

Besides her parents she was predeceased by her husband Donald Scott, sons: Ralph and George and brothers: Gordon, Howard, Russell and Harvey.

At the family's request there will be no visitation or funeral service due to the current pandemic situation.
