Great-grandmother with ‘so much love to give’ a COVID-19 victim

An 82-year-old great-grandmother is one of the latest Victorian victims of COVID-19.

Adored by her 10 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, Marion Scott last Tuesday became the 12th Victorian to die of coronavirus.

Great-grandmother Marion Scott created a ‘loving family environment’.

Her daughter, Marlene Stevenson, said her mum was very much loved.

"Mum wasn't number 12, mum was our mum, grandmother, great-grandmother and her name was Marion," Mrs Stevenson told Channel Seven.

There have been 6359 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Australia and 61 deaths. As of Monday night, Victoria recorded 1281 cases and 14 deaths.

Ms Scott was rushed to hospital 10 days after attending a radiology centre for a hip scan. Six staff members later tested postive to COVID-19.

Her son-in-law, Mat Stevenson, said Ms Scott created a "loving family environment and culture".

"It's no coincidence she is survived by so much love: three children, Marlene, Janet and Peter, 10 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren," he said.

"She had so much love to give."

He said the healthcare professionals at Frankston Hospital were amazing.

"My mother-in-law passed away without her loved ones around her, but she had such loving people around her when she passed," he said.

"A nurse was holding her hand when she passed. We don't know who they were but we know they have a beautiful soul.

"From the bottom of our heart, thank you for doing what you do."
