Lorene was known to the community for her hard work and her generosity to others, her love of life and devotion to God, family and friends.

These and all others she dedicated her entire life to their service.

On May 7, 2005, Lorene was honored with a celebration of her life at the Col. Cullmann Room at Cullman Regional Medical Center. On that day it was declared by Mayor Donald Green and the Alabama Legislature to be Lorene Scott Day.

Lorene was one of the first members of St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church and continued on to her death.

She was proceeded in death by her mother and father; her husband; a son-in-law, Larry Joe Wright; and three brothers, S.C. Camp Jr., Fred Camp and Clifford Camp.

She is survived by her daughter, Renee Scott Wright; two grandsons, Larry Joe Wright Jr. and James Steven (Stephanie) Wright; three great-grandsons, Joseph, James and Jacob Wright; sisters, Mildred Reese Lamberth, Theolene Hill, Jean Roberson and Margaret Hamrick; brother, James K. (Mary) Camp; sister-in-law, Estelle Camp; and numerous nieces and nephews.

‘Lorene Scott will leave a legacy’

Founder of Christmas Love passed away this week

By Lauren Estes The Cullman Times

A 90-year-old Cullman resident who was instrumental in working with abused and neglected children for many years, passed away on Tuesday.

Lorene Camp Scott transferred the Christmas Love program she founded to the Cullman Caring For Kids organization six years ago.

“When you’re obedient with little, God is going to give you much, and Lorene helped many children have a Christmas,” Nancy Bryant, assistant director of Cullman Caring for Kids , said.

“It’s always been about Cullman and children with Lorene,” Javon Daniel, Cullman Caring for Kids director, said. “She was a very sweet lady, one of the founder’s of the Pilot Club here and started the Pilot Lighthouse home, which was the abused children’s shelter. She started Christmas Love about 20 years ago, and Cullman Caring For Kids has had it for five years. She approached Cullman Caring For Kids about six years ago and asked us if we would help with it. It’s not a part of Cullman Caring For Kids, it’s an independent non-profit organization.”

Bryant has coordinated Christmas Love each year since, but expressed the significant difference Lorene Scott has made for abused and neglected children.

“Lorene Scott was a spearhead to so many programs and she’s leaving a legacy,” Bryant said. “She helped many children feel special and have a Christmas that maybe wouldn’t have otherwise.”

Daniel said even though she passed the her program over, she did not give up her involvement in making it the best it could be.

“Once she retired, she spent her time getting donations for Christmas Love. She was very community oriented,” Daniel said. “After the new board took over Christmas Love, she would call and say she got donations for this and that. She continued to work with the organization until she couldn’t because of her health. She was not only a good lady, she was a Godly lady and accomplished things with her persistence and heart for children.”

Lorene Scott passed away Tuesday, May 14. She was born Jan. 14, 1923, in Cullman to Carl and Georgia Camp. She was married to James C. Scott for 53 years and they had one daughter, Renee Scott Wright.

Funeral services for Lorene Camp Scott will be at 1 p.m. today, May 16, 2013, at Moss-Service Funeral Home Chapel.
