She was born on July 29, 1922, in Cade, La. to George and Maude Robinson.
A rosary was recited at 7 p.m. on Monday.
Fr. Donald Pousson officiated at the Memorial Mass.
She leaves behind her beloved husband of 67 years, Octave Otto Gutekunst Jr.; nine children, Mary Morgan, Carol Lagarde, Charles Gutekunst, Yvonne Kolarik, Christine Berard, Patricia Gutekunst, Claire Rogers, John Gutekunst and Jo Catherine Gutekunst; their spouses: Hank Lagarde, Eva Gutekunst, Bill Kolarik, Dan Berard, Ron Rogers and Avis Gutekunst. She is also remembered by 17 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren, and a nephew, John Steven Selby.
She was preceded in death by her parents, George Albert Victor Robinson and Maude Therese Steckler Robinson; her sister, Dorothy Steckler Robinson Selby; and her son-in-law, Elemore Morgan Jr.
Well-known for her reserve and her strict sense of fair play, Scottie was loved by her family for her warm love, her sense of humor, her intellect, and her ability to get any joke, some of which she generated herself. Her mother-in-law, Mrs. Octave Gutekunst Sr., would say in her French accent, “Oh that Scottie, she is so good to her children, she treats them like company.” She loved to be visited by family and friends and had an ongoing concern for life to work out well for others. She read everything and could sew or knit anything.
Scottie started her career as a Chemistry and English teacher, but spent most of her life educating children and grandchildren. She was almost unbeatable at Crazy Eights, could recommend a variety of books people might want to read, and delighted in seeing new places, whether they be castles in Scotland or the sand/gravel pit in Parks. Tea on Wednesday nights was always best when someone brought new jokes, a crazy obituary, or a friend she didn’t know yet. She will be greatly missed.
Pellerin Funeral Home of St. Martinville was in charge of arrangements.
