Christa M. Scott

1930 ~ 2019 (age 88)

Christa M. Scott passed away on February 16, 2019, at the age of 88.

She was born in West Berlin, Germany, on August 2, 1930, to William “Willy” Gergen and Charlotte Thoms Gergen.

After studying fashion design in Paris, France, Christa designed and modeled fashions in Europe for many years. Later, she became a gourmet chef and restaurant owner. She also enjoyed playing piano, water color painting, making jewelry, knitting, and inviting friends to her home for incredible home cooked gourmet dinners. For several years, she volunteered at “Kitchen Angels”, both cooking and delivering meals to the needy in the Santa Fe area.

Christa is preceded in death by her husband, William "Bill" H. Scott Jr. She is survived by her daughter, Danyelle “Dany” Scott of Santa Fe, New Mexico, stepdaughters Kathy Scott-Swank of Coral Gables, Florida, Cindy Scott-Griggs of Kannapolis, North Carolina, and Trisha Scott-Williamson of Atlanta, Georgia. She is also survived by step grandsons Scott Williamson of San Francisco, California, and Patrick Williamson of Denver, Colorado, as well as her step great grandsons Barrett Cameron Williamson and Archer Taylor Williamson. Last but not least, “Moritz”, her caretaker cat!

We will honor Christa with a celebration of her life on Sunday afternoon, May 19th at The Osteria De Assisi Restaurant from 2:00pm until 6:00pm.
