Virginia Lee Laird Ott was born in Burleson, Tx to Mildred Caldwell Laird and James Laird on January 19, 1933. She grew up in Dallas, Tx and graduated from Sunset High School in 1951. After a brief time working at Baylor Hospital, she married John Paul Ott and spent time both in England and Louisiana. Ultimately, they settled in the greater Houston area to start a family. Always a strong believer in education she received a graduate degree in History from the University of Houston and spent time working with the George Ranch Foundation in Ft. Bend County. After raising her family and over coming breast cancer she moved to Hideaway Lakes in Lindale, Tx. Eventually she returned to the Houston area to be closer to family and lived her final years in the Clear Lake community. She loved working on her family’s genealogy and was very proud of her Scottish ancestry. She would quickly educate anyone on this once asked. Her yard was her hobby and that was obvious to anyone that visited her. She died a brief time after a diagnosis of lung cancer was made. The family wishes to thank the staff at Methodist Hospital Clear Lake for their kindness. Her sons and family will greatly miss her and remember her for her unmatched loving kindness and unmatched generosity. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made in her name to a charity of your choice.
