It is with profound sadness that the family of Shirlee Judge Scott announce her peaceful passing on Friday July 25, 2021, at the age of 85 years. Shirlee was born November 24, 1935 in Columbus, Ohio to Melvin and Evelyn Judge.

Shirlee was a caring mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who spent her last moments surrounded by her family. We are forever grateful for her life, light, and love.

Shirlee professed Christ at an early age and was baptized at the Christ Memorial Baptist Church under the pastorate of the late Rev. L.H. Johnson. On August 28, 1957, she married Henry James Scott and carried the mantle of First Lady beginning in 1971 where she served alongside her husband at Shiloh Baptist Church for 3 years and Mt. Galilee Missionary Baptist Church for 28 years.

Shirlee is preceded in death by her husband, Pastor H.J. Scott, D.Min, father Melvin Judge, mother Evelyn Cason Office, and 8 siblings: Donald, Ray, Victor, Larry, Vesta, Carmelia, Janice, Johnny, and stepdaughter LaDreena (Angie) Scott.

Shirlee leaves waiting for that blessed reunion, sons Ron (Yolanda) Scott, Larcellus Angelo (Marisela) Scott, Shannon J. (Ann/Z) Scott, daughter Yolonda (Ron) Greggs, 4 siblings: Michael (Janice) Powell, Gloria Powell, Kim Powell, Toni (David) Andrews, and stepchildren Vincent Michael (Alphanese) Scott, Henry (Sharon) Scott, Jr., and Letheria Harrison. She also leaves to continue her legacy a host of grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

    On July 16, I had my final visit with you, not knowing that only days later God would have the final say. Spending those few hours with you gave me time to reflect down through the decades. It an enlightening and much needed visited. As dad’s sister, it was clear that he trusted, relied upon, and looked to you for support in weathering the storms that came along with childrearing.

    Thank you for picking me up from Hudson Elementary School during my 4th grade year when I was suffering from a fever of 103, taking me to your home and nursing me back to health with chicken noodle soup, orange juice, and a cozy bed until dad was able to get off work to pick me up. There are many rescue stories, (your interventions) to be shared such as this one. You wore your wings and crown here on earth throughout your life and I, your niece, will be forever grateful.

    Rest peacefully now, Aunt Shirlee your work is over, your journey fulfilled. You are triumphant! You are loved and will truly be missed.

  7. It is with profound sadness and a heavy heart that I write these words of encouragement upon the passing of “Momma Scott”

    For all intents purposes, you were the Mother, The Friend that I needed home away from my home. For over twenty five years, your guidance, your love, and your teachings taught me how to grow as a young lady, a mother to your three grand children, and a wife. I will forever be grateful for that time in MY life no matter how the end!

    Your work here on earth is over. You are now resting peacefully in his loving arms. Thank you for your time here on this earth for what it meant in my life and even how it shaped me as a woman!!

    May God Bless your loved ones who are left to grieve. Rest Now thy Good and Faithful Servant!!

  8. Sending prayers and condolences to the family.

  9. It is with deep sadness that I offer my condolences on the passing of my Aunt Shirlee. I will miss the distinct sound of her voice, her laughter and the joy she always expressed upon hearing my voice on the phone. I recall the stories she would tell of my father, her brother Donald. She had an amazing memory of bygone days, and I know so much more of our family history and who I am because of Aunt Shirlee. I will miss you dearly Aunt Shirlee, and I am so proud to be your niece. Rest now. You have earned your eternal rest. I’ll see you on the other side. ❤
