Eileen Margaret Scarlett

Eileen Margaret Scarlett, 93, formerly of Quincy, passed away April 10, 2023.

She was born and raised in New Brunswick, Canada. Her parents were Hilton and Georgianna McKinley.

In 1947 she met Art Scarlett, the love of her life, while traveling by train in Eastern Canada. They were married in 1948 and were married for 66 years. They moved to California in 1952 and to Quincy in 1955. Eileen was the Attendance Secretary at Quincy Junior-Senior High School for 25 years. Everyone knew who was really in charge at the school. After working at Quincy High School, she transferred to Quincy Elementary where she worked until she retired.

Art and Eileen moved to Reno in 2003 and also had a park model in Bullhead City Arizona. They were snowbirds for many years, enjoying their time at what they affectionately called “the ranch”.

Eileen was an excellent cook and baker. Her family has many recipes that were tried-and-true Nana recipes including the family favorites Nana’s apple pie and caramel squares. She enjoyed teaching her grandsons how to cook and they continue to make the family favorites. You could always give her a call with a cooking question.

She very much enjoyed Casino time and playing at a poker machine. She might even give the machine a hard time if she didn’t get 4 Aces with a kicker now and then. Eileen was very sharp and loved getting the answers to Jeopardy questions before the contestants. She loved learning new things and PBS shows in particular entertained and educated her.

Eileen was preceded in death by husband Art and daughter Cheryl. Eileen is survived by daughter Susan Scarlett (husband, Dave Truax) of Quincy. She is also survived by the true joys of her life, grandsons Whitney Stine (wife Layne) and Taylor Stine (wife Laurie) of Crestview, Florida, and great-grandchildren Kaine, Alicia, Juliana, Adriana and Mia, also of Crestview. Though her grandsons and great-grandchildren were many miles away they all kept in touch regularly and she enjoyed every phone call, every picture she received and Facetiming with them.

Donations to Plumas Community Hospice or the Plumas County Museum in Eileen’s name would be appreciated by the family.

  • She was a very beautiful lady and the driving force behind the attendance office at Quincy Junior Senior High. I graduated in 1972 and have fond memories of her. Her husband art used to come to Meadow Valley and speak at our 4-H club meetings. They were truly a lovely couple. RIP Mrs. Scarlett.

  • A wonderful tribute to a wonderful lady. I now work in the office at QJSHS and often find documents with her signature and report cards in her beautiful handwriting! (Yes, report cards were once handwritten!) I was also lucky enough to share in numerous Scarlett celebrations. She was Martha Stewart before Martha! And, if you invite me to dinner or a potluck, my go-to dishes are always from the Eileen Scarlett recipe files she so generously shared with me. We will truly miss her.

  • So sorry for your loss. Please accept my sincerest condolences. I guess they’re all together once again. Eileen, Norma, Dad(Grant), Dave and Edgar. RIP Eileen
