A memorial service honoring her life will be held at 2:00 pm on Sunday, August 26, 2018 at The

Barbara was born to John and June Waters at St. Paul’s Hospital in Dallas, Texas on March 20,
1946. She grew up in Irving, Texas where she attended Irving public schools. In 1964 she
graduated from Irving High School, 3rd in her class of over 300 students. The following year,
she attended Texas Christian University on a full scholarship where she majored in English and
minored in biology. Upon graduation in 1969, she briefly worked as a biology teacher at
MacArthur High School.

In 1969 Barbara won the title of Miss Irving and, subsequently, competed in the Miss Texas
pageant that summer. Several months later on April 10,1970 Barbara married Lyndell Scott and
took on the role of homemaker. Just over a year later she was blessed to become a mother.
Barbara accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior as a young adult in her early
twenties. After getting married and while her children were young, she and her husband,
worked in the singles ministry at MacArthur Boulevard Baptist Church in Irving, Texas. Barbara
also greatly enjoyed singing in the MBBC choir. After their move to Midlothian, Texas, she
continued to sing in the choir and also served as the church librarian at Oakcrest Baptist
Church. When they began attending Waxahatchie Bible Church, she continued her volunteer
role in their library as well. Later in life, she and her husband moved to Buckeye, Arizona, to live
close to their children and grandchildren. There she took on a discipleship role with several of
the women in The Church at Sun Valley.

Barbara is survived by her husband, Lyndell Scott; daughter, Rachel HagEstad and her
husband, Patrick; son, Daniel Scott and his wife, Mindy; and 7 grandchildren, Michael,
Jonathan, Benjamin, Matthew, Jayden, Jordan, and Austin. She is also survived by her mother,
June Beyer Waters; sisters, Betsy Haynes and Marianna LePori; and brothers, Jim and Johnny
Waters. She is preceded in death by her father, John Waters, Sr.; her sister, Teresa Roberts;
and her brother, Billy Waters.

Barbara is remembered as a prayer warrior, mentor, and encourager. Taking the Great
Commission to heart, she courageously shared the gospel with family, friends, neighbors, and
even strangers as she felt God’s prompting. Her favorite book in the Bible was Philippians, and
her most underlined passages were 4:6-7; 4:12b and 4:13.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with
thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all
understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” and “I have learned the
secret of being content in any and every situation” and “I can do all this through him who gives
me strength.”
