Scott A. “Scotty” Shaull, 87, La Cygne, Kan., passed away on Thursday, June 8, 2017, in Topeka, Kan. He was born March 3, 1930, near La Cygne, the son of Fred and Hettie Miller Shaull.
Scotty attended Star Valley Country School and La Cygne High School, graduating in the Class of 1948.
He married Clara Swann on April 28, 1951, in Eureka Springs, Ark. The following month he began training with the U.S. Army 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley, Kan. Scotty served in the Korean Conflict, obtaining the rank of sergeant in the 378th Combat Engineers.
He then returned to La Cygne in 1953 to resume a farming career that spanned more than six decades, until 2014 when he and Clara moved to Atria Hearthstone in Topeka due to failing health.
Scotty was a devoted husband, loving father to his two daughters and proud grandfather and great-grandfather. He also deeply loved his community and country and was always quick to help his neighbors and ensure local veterans’ graves were marked with flags each Memorial Day.
He was a member of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Mirza Shrine, Scottish Rite and Masonic Lodge.
Faith was the backbone of this wonderful man’s life. At the age of 13, he accepted Christ as his savior and was baptized at the La Cygne Christian Church. Scotty often sang about his love for his savior and was always grateful for the many blessings God bestowed upon him. He looked to God for strength in his recent years of failing health.
He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Marjorie Shaull Tribby.
He is survived by his wife Clara; daughters Karen Good (Richard) and Patti Jamison; four grandchildren, Jeffrey Elliott (Josie), Andria Zimmerman (Lance), John S. Jamison and Laura Jamison; a niece, Deborah Shorthill; a nephew, Douglas Tribby; and 10 great-grandchildren. He will be deeply missed by his wife, daughters, grandchildren, extended family and members of the La Cygne and Atria Hearthstone communities.
Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 14, 2017, at the Schneider Funeral Home and Crematory, La Cygne Chapel. Burial will be in the Oak Lawn Cemetery.
The family suggests contributions to the Shriners Hospitals for Children or The House at Midland Care. Online condolences for the family can be left at www.schneiderfunerals.com.
