Nancy Jo Spragins Scott

Nancy Jo Spragins Scott died Thursday, January 5, 2023. Nancy was born April 26, 1933, daughter of Joel H. and Hallie V. Spragins. She attended Little Rock public schools, graduating from Little Rock High School in 1951.  She attended Texas Women’s University and the University of Arkansas where she was a member of Chi Omega.

In 1957 Nancy married Wade H. Scott, Jr. She was active in PTA and was President of the Little Rock PTA Council.
