Jacquelyn Scott Willimon, known to her family and friends as Scottie, passed away in August at Harborview Medical Center.
Scottie was born in Newport, Rhode Island and moved to Seattle in 1968 at the age of 5. She was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder in her late teens and faced many struggles and challenges throughout her life. If you didn’t know her well, you may not have known of her generous and loving nature. She always cheered for the underdog, gave generously to panhandlers and the homeless and loved her family, friends and pets beyond measure. She was also a talented writer, loved music and had a flair of being original.
Scottie worked tirelessly as a peer counselor for the Behavioral Health Ombuds Service of King County and was well known among those mental health professionals who served greater King County and throughout the state of Washington. She will be missed by all who loved her.
No service is planned. Please make any memorials to the National Educational Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder at: NEABPD, 52 White Beeches Drive, Township of Washington, NJ 07676.
