Mary Scott Obituary

Mary Jane Allen Fulton Scott was born October 16, 1947, to Mr. J.C. Allen and Ms. Libbie Starks Allen Stephens in Tallahatchie County, Mississippi.  She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Elliott G. Scott, her son, Carlton E. Scott, six brothers (Robert L. Allen, J.C. Allen, Jr., B.T. Allen, A.C. Allen, David Earl Allen, and Anthony Stephens), and one sister (Jackie Allen).

Mary (“Jean”) accepted Christ at an early age.  She was a faithful, dedicated member of Bethlehem Temple Pentecostal Church in Detroit, MI, and later joined the Anointed Word Church in Lancaster, SC.  She enjoyed attending Sunday School and serving with the kitchen and hospitality ministries.  She especially loved serving the Love In Action outreach ministry that services the Lancaster County Boys and Girls Home, the Kershaw Prison, and local convalescent homes.

Mary attended school in Tallahatchie County Mississippi and later graduated from High School in River Rouge, MI.  She attended Cosmetology college in Detroit, MI where she graduated and then worked for many years as a licensed beautician.  She also worked as a health caregiver for over 10 years until she retired.

Mary and Elliott were married on October 15, 1977, and they had one son (Carlton Elliott) born unto their union.  The couple resided in both Detroit and Ypsilanti, MI before retiring in Indian Land, SC in 2009.

Jean loved her entire family.  She took tremendous pride in raising her four children.  She had a passion for keeping her extended family close by organizing and hosting family reunions, most recently in 2022 in Charlotte, NC.  Mary never met a stranger, and never refused to help a family member or friend in need of assistance.  Her personal interests and hobbies included flower gardening, cooking, hosting dinner parties, and collecting pictures in her scrapbooks. 

Mary leaves to cherish her memory 1 daughter Aretha Dates (Wiley); 2 sons, Kenneth Fulton, and Craig Fulton (Angela); 14 grandchildren and a host of great-grandchildren; 3 brothers, Tommie Lee Allen (Betty), Talmas Allen (Ruby), and Robert C. Allen (Nancy); 8 sisters, Louise Clay, Lue Ella Bailey (Charles), Stella Johnson (Truman), Dorothy Parker, Deloris Allen, Brenda Dunlap, Margaret Bracey, and Bernice Allen; 1 uncle, Ed Starks; and a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
