Obituary for Mildred Scott

Mildred Scott was born on October 12, 1937 in Thomasville, Georgia, daughter of the late Edward King and Gladys Hatcher King. The family moved to Roselle, New Jersey when Mildred was very young. She attended the Roselle Public School system and graduated from Abraham Clark High School in 1955.

Mildred married Jessie Lee Scott in 1955 and this union was blessed with three children.

She was employed by Hyatt Roller Bearing in Clark. She later worked for General Motors Corporation in Linden as an Assembly Line Attendant until 1991. She retired from the workforce after 27 years of service. After retirement, Mildred became a devoted caregiver for the Davidson family (Susan and Stuart) of Westfield. She loved their children Brian and Katie and considered them a part of her family. She cared for them until she suffered a stroke in 2009.

Mildred was a member of Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church for many years where she was baptized as a child. She served on the Missionary Board and Senior Choir.

She enjoyed spending time with her loved ones. She also enjoyed traveling by cruise ships and taking road trips with her husband down south to visit family and friends. No cookout or holiday dinner would be complete without Nana’s macaroni and cheese, collard greens and homemade pound cake. She was a stickler for cleanliness. Every bath or shower was followed by a large burst of Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder and the family really got a kick out of that ritual.

On Saturday, June 9, 2018, Mildred Scott departed this earthly life surrounded by her loving family at home at the age of eighty.

She leaves to cherish her memory, her devoted husband of sixty-four years, Jessie Lee Scott; one son, Jessie Lee Scott, Jr. (Valerie); two daughters: Gail Roberts (Kevin) and Helen Scott Crawford; one sister, Gladys “Patti” Powell; two brothers: Eugene King and Duane “Ricky” King: 7 grandchildren: Tameko Herbert, Gregory Crawford (Shelleta), Amber Crawford, Kevin Roberts (Tameika), Dana Crawford, Jordan Scott and Jessica Scott; 7 great-grandchildren: Payton Chandler, Carrington Chandler, Gavin Crawford, Kevin Roberts III, Michael White, Anthony Herbert, Jr. and Kaylyn Roberts; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends.
