Obituary

JANESVILLE - Eunice M. (Johnson) Scobie, 88, passed away Tuesday morning, September 1, 2020 at
Cedar Crest Nursing Home. She was born August 4, 1932 in Boone County, Il. to Oscar and Eda Johnson.
Eunice graduated as class valedictorian from Orfordville High School in 1949 at the age of 16. At age 17 she began secretarial duties at the Dougherty, Ryan, Moss, & Wickham Law Firm, working there until 1958.

On March 14, 1953, Eunice married the love of her life, Ronald R. Scobie, at the East Luther Valley Lutheran Church. Together they raised three children in their Janesville home. Eunice was an amazing woman of faith who deeply cared for her family.

In 1960 Eunice became the secretary of her home church, Asbury United Methodist Church; a position she held for 30 years. She also worked part time at Cedar Crest. Eunice enjoyed her family trips across the United States. She and Ron visited all fifty states and many overseas countries. Their favorite was Hawaii, vacationing there four times. She also enjoyed biking, camping and regular 3-mile walks.

Eunice volunteered time to many causes, including Girl Scouts, teaching third grade Sunday School, United Methodist Women, heading up church rummage sales, working the polls and helping with ECHO’s Food and Toy Drives. She helped at area blood drives and was proud to have donated many gallons of blood over her lifetime.

Eunice is survived by her husband of 67 years Ronald “Ron” Scobie; two daughters: Patricia (Mike) Spors of Janesville and Deb Scobie (Morocco Mercurio) of Corvallis, OR; five grandchildren: Jared, Melissa, Kimberly, Jonathan, and Daniel; and ten great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents; son Gerald Scobie, and seven siblings.

A Funeral Service for Eunice will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, September 5, 2020 at the WHITCOMB-LYNCH FUNERAL HOME, 21 S. Austin Rd, with Rev. Will Jewson officiating. Visitation will begin at 9:00 am until time of service on Saturday at the funeral home. Burial will follow at Oak Hill Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials to Asbury United Methodist Church or the Rock County Dementia Fund are appreciated. Please visit www.whitcomb-lynch.com to send condolences to the family.

Special thanks to Eunice’s Care Team at Cedar Crest and to ADRC Dementia Specialist Cori Marsh.

To Ron, Pat and Deb, our sincere hopes for peace and comfort in the loss of this amazing and wonderful wife and mother. We had the unique opportunity to see the love, dedication and caring that is part of your family as you would visit Mrs. Scobie at Cedar Crest. She always had a smile on her face and 'made our day' each time that we would see her sitting at the table and she would raise her hand to greet us when we said Hi. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

We were so sorry to hear of Eunice’s passing. The Scobies have been lifelong friends—literally my entire life. So many picnics and get-togethers. I always enjoyed seeing Ron and Eunice when I was back in Janesville. I know your faith will help you through this. Lots of love coming your way. Lyn & Allen Stubbendick and family

I can't remember ever not knowing Eunice. Ron and Eunice raised their children at Asbury Methodist Church as my parents did us. She was a Beautiful, caring lady with a great singing voice. (Methodists are known to really praise God in song!). I'm sorry for your loss but so thankful to have known Eunice! Love to you all!
