Obituary

LOUISE BANKS SCOTT was born October 8th, 1931 in King and Queen County, VA. Her parents were Carter and Georgia Banks. Louise was the youngest of 12 children, one of whom was adopted. Louise graduated from King and Queen County Training School in 1948.
Louise came to Philadelphia when she was 18 years old. She spent her working days in domestic work and was loved by the families that she worked for. She was with her first family for many years. She met their children as infants and was like a second mother to them. They were grown with families of their own before she left that family. She would work for two other families before retiring.
Louise grew up as a member of the New Morning Star Baptist Church. Even after leaving Virginia, she maintained her ties with her home church and supported the church’s homecoming week-end for many years. Louise never stopped going to church until her health began to decline a couple of years ago.
For many years, Louise knitted for a hobby. In more recent years, she enjoyed crocheting and word games. She also enjoyed tropical fish and loved her pet dogs. Her last one was miniature pincher named Princess.
Louise was married to the late James Edward Scott and together they had one son, who will gladly tell you how much he was spoiled.
Louise leaves behind: her son, Edward D. Scott; two granddaughters, Candyce Yvonne and Shani Barika; two great-granddaughters, Winter Star and Veronika Garcell; a host of nieces, two of whom were like sisters to her, Margorie and Juanita (Neeta), one of whom was like a daughter, Vanessa; a host of nephews and cousins. She also leaves behind a son, daughter and grandchildren from her husband’s first marriage and friends and a special friend, Donalphonso (Don) Williams.
