Mary Alsee “Pat” Linscott , 94, died at the Lake District Long Term Care facility on Thursday, Dec. 1, 2011.
She was born to John and Bettie (King) Wilson on Aug. 2, 1917 in Conway, Mo.
Pat grew up in Winfield, Kansas where she received her education. She married her first husband, James Cyrus Dunbar in 1932 in Winfield. After his death she married Neal Linscott in Winfield on Aug. 3, 1940. Not long after their marriage they moved to Washington, where she worked as a welder in the Bremerton Shipyard during World War II. Then in 1948 they came to Lakeview where Neal established a heavy equipment repair business and Pat immediately became the bookkeeper and welder.
She worked for many years in the Lakeview Mode-O-Day shop. She stayed very busy as a volunteer on the election board, water board, fair board, Op Shop and the hospital auxiliary. She was an expert seamstress and an avid and very serious pinochle player. She considered attaining the high honor of Chivalry in the Rebecca’s Lodge as one of her greatest achievements.
