Ann Bowman Scott passed away at home on November 4, 2022. She was preceded in death by her husband and life partner of 68 years, Lynn Stone Scott, who left us earlier this year.
Ann’s family had deep roots in the Salt Lake City community. Daughter of Lucille and Harold Bowman, she grew up on Diestel Road and attended the University of Utah, where she was a competitive skier and trained as a commercial artist. Soon thereafter, when her beloved Lynn attended graduate school, she was the family breadwinner and built an interior design business (she continued to design for friends and work on creative projects her entire life).
Ann traveled the world with Lynn in support of his leadership position at Parker Hannifin, a global industrial business, and served as a de facto goodwill ambassador for Utah, sharing with people her elegance and kindness. At home, Ann was an active member of Town Club and The Country Club.
All the while, however, she was first and foremost a loving wife to Lynn and mother to their two daughters, Elizabeth and Julie, and she always made their growth and success her top priority. Ann will be remembered fondly by her friends and those of her daughters, many of whom knew her as “the mom who wanted to hang out with us.” She will also be missed by her granddaughters, Catherine and Lucille, who were so fortunate to enjoy her wisdom and wit.
Ann will rest beside Lynn at Larkin Sunset Lawn, overlooking the valley that was and will always be their home.
Dear Liz and Julie and families,
Please accept my love and sympathy at the death of your beloved mother. It's hard for you to lose both your parents in such a short time.
I have such fond memories of being your neighbors on Alva Circle for so many years -- July 4th parade floats and other neighborhood fun times. You played with my children and were often in my home.
My husband John passed away in January of this year. I miss him but am moving forward. My family are wonderful to support and help me.
May the Lord bless you with peace and comfort.
Dear Liz and Julie,
You may not remember that I was in the same graduating class at East High as your mother. I remember her well as Ann Bowman. She was a darling, popular, athletic friend. I remember that she was on the ski team. We used to reminisce about those high school days. I appreciated her friendship over the years.
May happy memories give you peace and comfort at this difficult time.
