Aimee Elisabeth Prater (Scarbrough), 30, passed away on Saturday, February 5, 2022. She was born October 1, 1991 to parents Keith and Lisa Scarbrough. Aimee was born and raised in Bono, Texas and married C.J. Prater, on September 17, 2016. She lived with her husband and daughter, Lynlee Claire Prater, in Granbury, Texas.
Aimee’s life was filled with love, light, and a sense of adventure. During her childhood, she developed her servant's heart for her community by watching her father who is a firefighter and her mother who is a pediatric ICU nurse. This drive to pursue purpose filled work led her to earn a Bachelor of Social Work from San Angelo University and advocate for struggling members of the community in her role of Quality/Staff Development Manager at Pecan Valley Centers for Behavioral and Developmental Healthcare. She and her husband were active in their community, serving roles with the Granbury Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club.
While Aimee showed deep passion for her work and volunteering, her biggest passion was her family and friends. She adored her husband C.J., whom she met as a teenager and was, in her words, her “soulmate, best friend, and forever adventure partner”, and her daughter Lynlee Claire, her princess. Aimee was a core member of both her and her husband’s families, where she could be found amidst the planning crew for holiday get togethers, vacations, and all the small but precious life events. She was passionate about living life to the fullest and rarely missed a chance to try something new. Her weekends were often filled with running 5Ks, community events, or exploring local places. In a thousand little ways, her love for those she held dear was deep and wide and expressed with no reservations. She will be dearly missed.
Aimee was preceded in death by her grandmother, Nell “Nanny” Baskett, and great grandmother Christine Baskett.
She is survived by her husband, C.J. Prater and their daughter, Lynlee Claire Prater; her parents, Keith and Lisa Scarbrough; her sister, Kayce Scarbrough; her brother and sister-in-law, Wesley and Molly Scarbrough; and honorary sister and brother-in-law, Amanda and Chad Ressler; maternal grandparents, Charles and Hazel Baskett; aunt, Christi Baskett; paternal grandparents, Glenn and Sheila Scarbrough; uncle and aunt, Glenn and Lynette Scarbrough; cousins, Lance Scarbrough and wife, Hannah, Justin and Katie Scarbrough, Aubree Scarbrough, and Lawrence Scarbrough; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Daniel and Kelly Prater; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Cliff and Mindy Prater, nieces Emma, Hailey, Nora and Ava, sister-in-law Jessica Prater and fiancée Rande Watson; nieces and nephews, Ashlynn, Rainee, Jackson, and Ryan; grandparents-in-law, Sharon Peoples, Jim and Terre Madden, and Don and Shirley Prater; and a whole host of other family members.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate Disney World gift cards. Aimee was so excited to introduce Lynlee to the magic of Disney World that she and C.J. loved so much.
