Ms. Scott was born on Sept. 23, 1944 in Mexico, the daughter of Conrad and Pauline Clayton.

Connie was an avid sports fan and especially enjoyed basketball and softball. She played softball in her younger years and basketball was her favorite form of exercise. A love for music was evident throughout the Clayton family and Connie was no exception. She loved to listen to all kinds of music and dance right along with it. As a resident of Pin Oaks she found happiness every time Kelly Stanford came to entertain. Connie was a devoted mom to her three children. She never missed a class party, school event and volunteered at the school as much as possible. While she was able, she loved her grandchildren passionately.

Connie was preceded in death by her parents, Conrad and Pauline Clayton; three brothers, James Doyle Clayton, Donald Clayton, Ronald Clayton and one sister, Caroline Clayton.
