Ellen Baxter Schott died on October 29, 2013, at the age of 64 after a courageous fight against breast cancer for more than 12 years. She died at home in McLean, Virginia, surrounded by her husband of 38 years, Allan Schott, and all three of her children: her daughters Meghan Lyn Schott Corbitt and Michaela Ellen Brady, and her son, Jonathan Allan Schott.
She was born in Worchester, Massachusetts, and grew up in Scituate, Massachusetts. She was the daughter of Robert T. Baxter and M. Elenor Quilty. She was a teacher in Scituate, Massachusetts and Montgomery County, Maryland. She retired from teaching in order to devote her time to raising her children. As her children became older, she turned her hobby of antique collecting into a business of dealing in antiques in Northern Virginia.
In addition to her husband and children, Ellen is survived by her two sons-in-law, Timothy Scott Corbitt and Joshua Bryson Brady, one granddaughter and three grandsons. She is also survived by her three brothers, Robert, Steven and Mark Baxter.
Ellen loved teaching, antiques, New Hampshire, the beach and animals; but most of all, she loved her family and being a mom and grandmother.
A memorial service in celebration of her life will be held on Sunday, November 3, 2013, at 1:00 p.m., in the Atrium of Meadowlark Gardens, 9750 Meadowlark Gardens Court, Vienna, Virginia 22182, with a reception to follow immediately. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to a memorial fund in Ellen's name at the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure.
