Clovadys Sue Scott, age 75, of Oak Hill, Ohio passed away peacefully Saturday, July 4, 2020 at The Landing of Canton. She was born August 17, 1944 in Columbus, Ohio to the late Glen and Lelia (Keels) Scott. She was raised in Blackfork, Ohio where she accepted God as her Lord and Savior and was baptized at a very young age, becoming a member of Union Baptist Church.
In 1963, she graduated from Decatur-Washington High School where she was a cheerleader, homecoming queen, and track standout. Clovadys attended Rio Grande College majoring in Elementary Education, as well as later receiving her master’s degree. Clovadys left a legacy of educating young minds. She was an amazing teacher who was dearly loved by her students and peers alike. Clovadys was employed by the Oak Hill Union Local Schools for 36 years rarely missing a day of work.
She married the love of her life, Harry D. Scott Jr. on December 11, 1966 and to this union their daughter Lucretia￼ was born. In their 54 years of marriage Clovadys faithfully followed her husband in his ministry. She first served as a Deaconess at Union Baptist and then became the First Lady at Glouster Baptist for 7 years and Paint Creek Baptist for 14 years. She was dedicated to the church, stepping up wherever she was needed whether it was singing in the choir or teaching children in Sunday School. Clovadys loved and supported her family in all their endeavors. She enjoyed traveling with her family, taking Sunday drives, and eating at Bob Evans. Above all of these she loved the Lord.
Although in her later years her body was ravaged by Alzheimer’s, she never lost her faith, smile and fighting spirit to persevere through this brutal disease.
“It broke our heart to lose you
But you didn’t go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God took you home.”
