Obituary of Shirley Ann Scott

Please share a memory of Shirley to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Our hearts are saddened by the death of our loved one, Shirley Ann Scott, 80 years old of Atlantic City, New Jersey who departed this life on Tuesday, January 3, 2023. Shirley was born November 15, 1942, Mary Elizabeth and William Cutler in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Both of her parents have preceded her in death. Shirley attended Atlantic City public schools and graduated from Atlantic City High School in 1961. Shirley worked many jobs through her life's journey. She was employed by the Atlantic City Public Schools before becoming a cafeteria manager for the Tropicana Casino. She retired from the Tropicana after 20 years of service. She was a kind loving soul, who loved attending family gatherings and building a lifetime of memories. She loved her family dearly. Shirley especially enjoyed the time spent with her loving and devoted son, Ronald Scott, Jr. And her grandchildren. She was raised in a religious household that embraced Christianity. Shirley was a member and attended Atlantic City's New Shiloh Baptist Church. Mrs. Scott loved traveling up and down both the East and West Coasts of the United States and taking walking along the Atlantic City Beach and Boardwalk. She would profess that she was "a foodie-in-training", which led her to explore new restaurants – particularly seafood restaurants as seafood was her favorite type of food. Her conservative swagger kept her shopping and keeping up with the latest fashions. She always wore a bit of red as that was her color of choice. Shirley's laugh, smile, and soft personality touched many lives. In additions to her parents, Shirley is predeceased by her siblings: Ethel Hamilton, Doris Marshall, Thelma 'Sissy' Jones, Theresa Cutler and William Cutler. She leaves to cherish her fond memories: loving and devoted son, Ronald 'Peanut' Scott, Jr. (Beatrice); grandsons, Ronald Scott, III, and Bilaal Lewis; granddaughters: Aniyah Lewis, Janee and Jasmine Browne; three great-grandsons; three great-granddaughters; lifetime friends, Rosie Mitchell, Carol Terry and Margaret Sanders; and a host of devoted family, and close associates. Funeral services will be Noon, Saturday, January 7, 2023, New Shiloh Baptist Church, 701 Atlantic Avenue, Atlantic City, New Jersey where friends may call from 11AM. Interment to follow in Atlantic City Cemetery, Pleasantville, New Jersey. Arrangements entrusted to Greenidge Funeral Homes, Atlantic City, New Jersey where condolences may be left at www.greenidgefuneralhomes.com.
