Serenity Funeral Home - Roanoke Obituary

On Saturday morning, June 13, 2020, as the birds were waking, Alice Howard Davis Scott went to her Heavenly home of rest.

Alice was born June 10, 1929, the youngest of three children born to the late Richard Davis, Sr.  and Dorothy Lucille Hamlett Davis in Brookneal Virginia.  Her siblings Richard Davis, Jr. and Mattie Elliotte, preceded her in death.  In 1950 she was united in marriage to the late Angress F. (Mutt) Scott, Sr.  To this union two sons were born.

Alice was educated in the Campbell County school system in Rustburg, Virginia.  She attended the Roanoke Valley Nursing Assistant School where she received CNA certification.  Alice was the first black short-order cook at S. H. Kress & Co. in downtown Roanoke.  She was a valued employee of Singer Furniture Company for 22 years.  Alice loved working with children and worked as a substitute teacher for the TAP Head Start Program.  She also worked as the deli manager at Amoco Food Shop in Salem, Virginia.

Alice accepted Christ at an early age at the Mount Zion Baptist Church in Redhouse, Virginia.  Upon her relocation to Roanoke, she joined Central Baptist Church, and later joined Pilgrim Baptist Church where she served faithfully as a member of the Missionaries and Senior Choir.

Those left to cherish her memory are two sons, Angress (Sheila) Scott and Donald (Denise) Scott; two grandchildren, Avery Scott and Charisse (Robert) Crotts; three great-grandchildren, Zuri Scott, Arya Rigdon, and Moses Crotts; one niece, Eleanor Elliotte; one nephew, Richard Davis III; one brother-in-law, James (Elsie) Scott; special friends Dorothy McCray, Eloise Keatts, Caron Turner, Karen Kimbrough, Anita Austin, and Dr. C.
