Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Kim Ruth Alice Scott, age 61

Our beloved mother and sister, Kim Ruth Alice Scott, passed from this life to the next on Saturday, December 31, 2022. She was born on November 1, 1961, in Little Rock, Arkansas. From her heavenly home on high, she’s now watching over her four children (Kelly Killingsworth, of Malvern; Nikki Killingsworth, of Benton; Cody Williams, of West Helena; and Sierra Walker, of Sheridan) as well as her five grandchildren (Adam & Lucien; Cailor & Rain; and Damon), her five siblings (Howard Alexander, Robert Alexander, Mark Alexander, Kristie Bradley, and Scott Alexander), and many other family members and friends. She is reunited now with her dear husband, Stephen Scott, and her cherished mother, Loretta Alexander.

Mom was given a rough road to ride, but she navigated life with grace, with a gentleness beaming out into the world from her soft hazel eyes. Though our hearts be heavy now with the grief of missing her, her sweet spirit lives on, as we remember the ways her love touched each of us. She gave us the infamous “cheese ball.” She gave us hand-tended sunset roses. She gave us her huge heart for animals, filling our childhood years with a menagerie of treasured pets, from Jack, the pirate parrot; to Five Kinds of Ugly, the frisky filly; to Isis Queen of Cats and her rainbow-markered kittens; to Merlin the mouse; to various chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, rabbits, piglets, ponies, goats, deer, cats, dogs, and even a bull!

She kept us safe from Sasquatch, UFOs, and many other terrors lurking in the star-shot night. She kissed and made better many a scraped knee sustained in our endless Onion Grass Wars and pine cone crusades. She always encouraged us in our grand adventures, sparking our imaginations. She was our Tooth Fairy and our stocking-stuffer. She gave us years of laughter, love, hugs, and good advice. She gave us her silver hair, as well as her special love of horses and all things wild and free. She parted this world peacefully, with loved ones at her bedside, listening to one of her favorite songs, a beautiful ballad about a girl and her horse- “Wildfire” by Michael Martin Murphy. We thank our Heavenly Father that she is now enjoying His everlasting peace and rest.

Mama, you know we’ll all be ridin’ Wildfire, yes we’ll be ridin’ Wiiiildfire, when we meet again.

    My dearest aunt, you will be truly missed. You’re now free & healed.

    Little did we know that afternoon
    God was to call your name.
    In life we loved you dearly,
    in death we do the same.
    It broke our hearts to lose you,
    You did not go alone.
    For part of us went with you
    The day God called you home.
    You left us beautiful memories,
    Your love is still our guide,
    And though we cannot see you,
    You are always at our side.
    Our family chain is broken,
    and nothing seems the same,
    But as God calls us one by one,
    The chain will link again.
