Obituary for Sally Ruth Scott

La Grange-Sally Ruth Wade Scott, 82, of La Grange, peacefully received her heavenly call on Saturday, April 28, 2018, with her daughters by her side. Sally Ruth was born May 26, 1935, to the late Joseph Prentice Wade and Sally Miller Wade. Her husband, Leland Ormond Scott, Jr., preceded her in death on August 2, 2002.

Serving her Lord and taking care of her family were the driving forces in Sally Ruth’s life. She truly loved doting on her grandchildren and great-grandson. She was her family’s greatest cheerleader and supported them in all their endeavors. Her warm smile and encouraging words were a great source of strength to her family. Nothing was better for Sally Ruth than being surrounded by her family. Her family has many fond memories of her wonderful meals. No one fixed better red velvet cake, old fashioned chocolate cake, homemade biscuits, and spaghetti.

A true prayer warrior and champion for Christ, Sally Ruth’s faith was evident in all she did. She had a heart for giving back and always placed the needs of others ahead of her own. Sally Ruth was a longtime member of La Grange First Free Will Baptist Church. Her cards of encouragement were a great source of strength and hope for many people.

A service to celebrate and honor Sally Ruth’s life will be held Wednesday, May 2, 2018, at 7 p.m. at La Grange First Free Will Baptist Church with Rev. Ronnie V. Hobgood officiating. Burial will be Thursday at 11 a.m. at Fairview Cemetery.

Sally Ruth is survived by her two daughters, Vicki Scott Bannister and husband, Bruce, and Lori Scott Willis and husband, Anthony; three grandsons, Dustin Bannister and wife, Danielle, Kevin Bannister and Dylan Willis; great-grandson, Declan Bannister; sister, Dorothy Lockamy; along with a number of nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents and husband, Sally Ruth was preceded in death by eight siblings, Mavis Anderson, Albert Wade, Mary Wade, Aaron Wade, Cecil Wade, Gertrude Nipple, Norman Wade, Ben Wade and Louise Howell.

Sally Ruth’s family will receive friends Wednesday from 5:30-6:30 p.m. and also following the service. Online condolences may be expressed at www.rousefh.com.
