On March 6, Debra Scott died peacefully among friends. She had been dealing with an aggressive cancer for a long time.
Debra was a KZYX programmer for several years - mostly doing the Ecology Show and focusing on peace issues and the environment.
We been told her memorial is going to be a private gathering near her home in Mendocino, so there is no date to give out. We believe that anyone who wants to remember Debra can best do so by working for peace and the planet.
Wherever she lived, she surrounded her place with countless kinds of herbs and flowers, which she studied carefully. And you usually saw Debra with fresh flowers in her hair. While she was at the station she kept people up to date on the important environmental issues and the latest thinking. As she suffered the ups and downs of being a cancer patient, a dedicated and loving group of friends came together to help her - as she had also helped others with the condition.
She will be missed and fondly remembered.
A memorial open to all will be on Sunday, March 19, 2 to 7 pm at Crown Hall - potluck.
