Scotti Bagwell was born in La Mirida, California on October 18, 1969 to proud parents James and Rayola Bagwell. She bounded into our lives too early and took us by surprise. She left us on September 23, 2020 as she entered--too early.
Scotti was a good friend to everyone she met. She loved competing in Special Olympics, traveling and going on outings. She was a strong advocate for animals in the Cortez area and volunteered at the animal shelter. She was so proud to be working part-time at a local pet store. She also volunteered with For Pets Sake Humane Society taking care of feral cats.
She is survived by her mother Rayola Bagwell; two brothers James (Guadalupe) Bagwell of Chula Vista, CA and John Bagwell of Cortez, CO. She is also survived by one very loyal dog, Isabella, that she adopted from the City Market parking lot, and three cats, Sweetpea, Athena and Perseus.
She was preceded in death by her father, James Bagwell; sister Mayo Bagwell McDonald; and grandparents Oscar and and Mary Bagwell and Bunn and Blanche Turnbow.
Scotti will be remembered for her mischievous smile, generous spirit, and warm heart for all of those in need.
A service will be held for Scotti at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 24, 2020 in Montezuma Park on Montezuma Avenue.
