Amy spent her youth at Capel on the family farm” Palm Hill” on Goodwood Road, Capel. Amy took on many tasks not always done by women. Her contribution on the family was tremendous and as she didn’t marry young, she had a special relationship with her family especially her parents.
Amy was the youngest and was dearly loved and very popular by all as was evident in the number of times she was asked to be an attendant at weddings.
Amy was nurtured by a loving family and this up bringing carried on in her own life. She loved her family and country life and growing her vegetables and cooking which made her a favourite Aunt and to all who knew her. Amy Scott was my husband’s great aunt, and it was my privilege to have shared many happy days with her. She was the special great great aunt of our children and they loved her dearly. They remember the trips to Capel to pick fruit at either the Hutton or Scott orchards and the delicious fruit they enjoyed. Didn’t enjoy the bull ants though.
Aunty Amy was a true Christian in every sense of the word; loving, giving honourable and always ready to help.
Aunty Amy was a tireless worker and gave freely of her time to family and her church. We all enjoyed her jams, pickles, fresh vegetables, and the fish Uncle Charlie caught which Aunty would fillet and have ready for us to cook.
Aunty Amy contribution to the monthly Jumble stall at St Mary’s Church, Busselton was tremendous. The spare room at her home in Adelaide Street, Busselton was always full of boxes of jams, pickles, relish and sewing she had done ready for the next sale. Her contribution to her church was recognised in the form of a Memorial Table (Photo attached).
Aunty Amy always enjoyed visitors and was always interested in everyone’s activities and if possible, would kindly offer some advice. Her home was open to all, and her yard was always reserved for family and friend’s cars on Busselton Show Day.
Amy married Charlie Scott when she was 30, at the Anglican Church, Capel.
Early years of their marriage were spent at Mullalyup where they farmed, Uncle Charlie had racehorses. Later they moved to Wonnerup where they developed a very successful dairy farm. Amy and Charlie also had properties at the Stirling, Upper Capel, and Ludlow. Amy and Charlie regularly moved their cattle between properties, and this involved walking many miles in all-weather along the roads with Charlie in the lead and Amy making sure all cattle followed.
They retired to Busselton and purchased their new home at 62 Adelaide Street, Busselton.
Their annual fishing trips up north, Exmouth area were always a topic of conversation. They slept on the ground on their palliasse (made by Amy) at the spots where they fished.
Amy resided here until her death in 1973.
Amy was recognised for her work for St Mary’s church, Busselton with a memorial. (see images attached)
Amy was a wonderful cook and below are 3 examples of her passion found in Newspapers
