Gov. Rick Scott’s mother, Esther, dead at 84

by John Kennedy | November 13th, 2012

Gov. Rick Scott’s mother, Esther, a fixture in his 2010 campaign for governor, has died at age 84.

Scott posted on his Twitter page Tuesday evening, “My Mom – one of the only constants in my life – has passed away. Ann and I are comforted by all the thoughts and prayers for our family.”

Esther Scott had been struggling with health issues. Scott traveled to Kansas City to be with her in late October after she was hospitalized with an infection and placed in the intensive care unit.

She divided her time between Kansas City and Florida. Esther Scott had been featured in television spots during the governor’s race two years ago, assuring viewers that her son, a first-time political candidate, was “a good boy.”

Scott earlier mentioned that his wife’s mother and father also have died in the past year.
