Lelia Hope Teague Scopoli

October 17, 1947 — March 23, 2022

Lelia Hope Teague Scopoli, 74, passed away on March 23, 2022, in Tallahassee, FL, after a gradual decline from early-onset dementia.

Hope was born October 17, 1947 to the late Woodrow Seth and Christine Hickman Teague, and raised in Granite Falls, NC. She graduated from Granite Falls High School, Lenoir-Rhyne College, and the University of North Florida where she received her Master's and Doctorate degrees in Educational Leadership. Hope’s lifelong career as an educator in the classroom and as an administrator for Clay County School Board left a lasting impact on all who knew her. 

She enjoyed playing the piano, reading a good mystery, knitting, traveling, supporting the arts and local charities, cheering for Florida State University, and keeping up with friends. Most of all she loved her family, including her Boston Terriers. She was a calm voice to many. She was compassionate, intelligent, accepting, and supportive. She was a beloved sister, mom, grandma, aunt, and friend.

She is survived by her daughter, Shelley Scopoli McLaughlin (Brian), of Tallahassee, FL; grandchildren, Brennan and Charlotte; brother Edward H. Teague, of Eugene, OR; sister Teresa Teague Jackson (Jerry), of Granite Falls, NC; niece Jenny Jackson Reilly (and family), of Concord, NC; and nephew Jerry Jackson, Jr. (and family), of Woodstock, GA.

Immediate arrangements were by Bevis Funeral Home of Tallahassee. A memorial service will be held at 11:00am on Friday, April 15, 2022 in the Broadus-Raines Chapel in Green Cove Springs, FL with Dr. Tim McDaniel officiating. A graveside service will be held at 11:00am on Saturday, May 28, 2022 at the Hickman Family Cemetery in Hudson, NC.  The family extends their gratitude to Deb Simmons, Big Bend Hospice, and the staff of Capital Square at Tallahassee Memory Care.
