Wanda Scott Obituary

Wanda Lee Scott, 88, of Charleston, West Virginia, went home to be with the Lord Saturday, September 16, 2023, at Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC) Memorial Division. Wanda was born  July 21, 1935, to the late Beatrice Leonard Harris and was raised by her stepfather, Ernest Odell Harris.

Wanda attended Boyd Elementary/Junior and Garnet Senior High Schools. She was employed as a social worker for Kanawha County schools until she retired.


Wanda was a member of New Covenant Missionary Baptist Church and was a mother of the church. She was faithful in her attendance until her failing health caused her to miss. Wanda was full of sage advice and gladly played mother to anyone younger than her. Mother Scott was also a Daughter of Isis. Always very well dressed, she didn’t mind letting you know that she knew she looked good. Unafraid to speak her mind, Wanda was very frank and wouldn’t hedge on telling you what she was thinking or that you were wrong.

Wanda considered herself to be a master Bid Whist player, and she was a lover of the “oldies but goodies.” In fact, Wanda still had and used her record and cassette players. She insisted that everyone ate dinner at the same time together, and no one was able to escape doing their assigned chores. Wanda was a wonderful mother while ruling with an iron hand.

Wanda was preceded in death by her husband, Basil Scott, daughter, Wanda M. Ross, sons, Clarence W. Scott, Jr., and Ty A. Strickland, grandson, Terry Berkley, granddaughter, Africa J. Scott, parents to include her biological father, Horace Love, sisters, Valetta S. Tyler, and Doretha Harris, and brothers, Jerry Harris, Freddie Harris, and Edward Leonard.  

Wanda leaves to cherish her memory, daughter and caregiver, Marlene Booth and daughter, Angela Davis (Larry), son, Todd Strickland and son/grandson, Ty’Shawn Berkley, six grandchildren, two great grandchildren, three great-great grandchildren, brother, William Harris (Brenda), sister, Natalie Harris, and special friends, Phyllis Woods, Carol Mosley, and Ms. Annestine Peoples.

The 23rd Psalm was one of her favorite scriptures and that was the way she lived. Wanda believed that the Lord was her shepherd, and she did not want. Let’s walk in her shoes.
