Julia (Boulton) Scott

WEST CORNWALL — Julia Boulton Scott, 87, of Cream Hill Road, died peacefully on Nov. 30, 2020, at Geer Village. She was the loving wife of the late John Findlay Scott.

Julia was born on April 6, 1933, in Calcutta, India, the eldest daughter of The Very Reverend Walter and Kathleen Lorna (Yorke-Batley) Boulton. 

In 1945, her family returned to England and Julia graduated from Girton College at Cambridge University in 1955 with an M.A. in History and Law. 

She married John on June 25, 1958, and they moved from the U.K. to New York City, where John joined the Legal Office of the United Nations. She got her M.S.W. from Columbia School for Social Work in 1979.

In 1965, she and John purchased and renovated an old mill in West Cornwall, and moved there full time in 2000. 

Over the years she was passionate about her gardens and her horses, and was devoted to her family, friends and community. Her interests included music, literature, travel and cooking. She was known in Cornwall for her hospitality and she frequently used Gold’s Mill for entertaining and fundraising. 

Julia was a committed volunteer who served on numerous boards, many of which involved organizations committed to providing resources for mental health, including Prime Time House, Clubhouse International and Fountain House.  

She is survived by two sons, John William and Alexander; a daughter, Catherine; and nine grandchildren, John, Dylan, Graham, Caroline, Emma, Annabel, Stella and Ruby.

A memorial service will be deferred until 2021, once it is safe to gather again. 

Memorial contributions may be made to Clubhouse International, 845 Third Ave., 6th Floor, NYC, NY 10022; and Crescendo Inc., P.O. Box 245, Lakeville, CT 06039.

The Kenny Funeral Home has care of arrangements.
