"Jimmy is a classmate I was thinking about today and remembering that I had known him since the first grade. He was absolutely the cutest, blondest, curly haired boy I had ever seen and it was love at first sight. The same was true for most of the rest of the girls in Ms. Fotheringham's class at McKinley. Jimmy would "allow" us to take turns sitting by him in the cafeteria....the rest would gather all around as close as we could. Truly amazing memory and so vivid! This continued into the second grade in Ms. Stuckey's class. I moved away from Amarillo for three years but re-appeared at McKinley in the 6th grade. I was "older and wiser" by then and it was Jimmy's time to chase me, but I was evasive. He sent a note to me in class and it said, "Will you be my girlfriend?" Two squares were there to check either "Yes" or "No" and I remember writing...."Maybe" beside them. Later, when he was at Austin JH and I was at Nixson JH, I had a date or two with him in the 9th grade. I remember he took me to Lehmer Dunn's where several couples had gathered and we had so much fun, but I felt pretty shy around all new people (my future classmates!) We remained good friends, but never dated again all through high school. He was my wonderful cheerleader partner and I couldn't have asked for a finer friend and partner. Mark and I saw his wife and him at one of our reunions and had a good short visit. I still can hardly believe that he left us at such a young age. Does anyone know exactly when he died and a little more about his life after high school. Please post it if known. Farewell, dear friend, I'll "Meet you in the morning" and I'll know you "by the smile that you wear" when we meet again.
Note: As a junior cheerleader, Jimmy was the original Mr. Sandman, a tradition that began in 1956/1957 school year. Jimmy was carried onto the football field - in a box decorated in black and gold. Not knowing exactly where he was at on the field, Jimmy jumped out of the box and ran the wrong direction.

Memorial services will be at 1 p.m. Wednesday in Polk Street United Methodist Church with the Rev. Mary Hamrick officiating. Private family burial will be in Llano Cemetery by Schooler Funeral Home, 4100 S. Georgia St.
Marion was born Nov. 9, 1939, in Amarillo to Madison Franklin Fields and Minnie Seelbach Fields. She grew up on a farm in Groom until the age of 11 when the family moved to Amarillo. She graduated from Amarillo High School in 1958, and in 1962 she received a B.A. in elementary education with a minor in drama from Baylor University. She taught elementary school in Midland, Jefferson County, Colo., and Fort Worth.
On July 9, 1966, she married Edward Riley Scott Jr., an attorney, now a developer and entrepreneur. Eddie and Elizabeth were active members of Polk Street United Methodist Church. She served in leadership positions in various organizations such as P.E.O., Junior League, PTA, United Methodist Women and Friends of the Library.
Her love of teaching and her passion for reading inspired her to give many book reviews and teach Sunday school classes. Genealogy became her avocation. No trip was complete without looking in hidden cemeteries for gravestones of long-gone family.
She enjoyed writing, especially poetry and short stories. Her creativity also was expressed through photography and scrapbooking. She enjoyed entertaining friends, finding Christmas decorations and making the house look festive during the holidays. Traveling and playing bridge were among her favorite pastimes.
Her family always came first. She treated her own children with loving kindness, gentleness, enthusiasm and never-ending hugs. She taught her children how to be forgiving, gentle, optimistic and gracious. Her grandchildren were as much a pride and joy as her own children. They adored her, and she adored them. She lived in Amarillo for 58 years.
The most extraordinary thing about her was the incredible strength, courage and hope she found to endure her battle with cancer. Her response when asked how she was feeling consistently remained. "I'm feeling better today," even during her last days. She gave a new meaning to life to those who knew her and shared a hope in a God of love. She showed us courage, strength and patience. Elizabeth was a shining light. Her smile was her most endearing quality, and she could make all around her feel special. Her memory will live in our hearts and lives. She was a gracious woman who had an unusual warmth and zest for life. She will be remembered for her gentle spirit, her faith in God and for her unending acts of generosity.
Her mother and father preceded her in death.
