Rose Scott, 82, of St. Matthews, passed away on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2019, with her children by her side.

She was born Rose Marie Russell on June 3, 1937, in Sumter, to the late Walter T. and Thelma H. Russell. Rose graduated from Edmunds High School in 1955 and, soon thereafter, married Willard Mack "WM" Scott Jr. The early years of their marriage were spent in Sumter, before relocating to Harleyville, where many lifelong friendships were formed. In devotion to their families, they resided a short time in St. Matthews before moving to Nashville, Tennessee.

Rose is survived by two children, Cindy (Roger) Quattlebaum of St. Matthews and Lang Scott (Linda) of Old Hickory, Tennessee; two brothers, Ken (Dolores) Russell and Randy (Susie) Russell; six grandchildren, Bart (Sharie), Brett (Emily), Clay (Addi) and Barry Quattlebaum, Hillary (Chris) Tyrrell and Rylee Jean Scott. She was proud of her nine great-grandchildren, Ryan, Cale, Natalie, Knox, Hayes and Lila Rose Quattlebaum and Eisele, Emory and Betsy Tyrrell.

Rose was preceded in death by her husband; her son, Barry; and her sister, Margaret Prosser.

Rose poured her life and love into her family through nurturing, homecooked meals and fierce competitiveness at Scrabble and Rummy. Her door and heart were always open to those who sought a safe, secure place to land, a nap on the couch or a simmering hot meal. She leaves a flood of beautiful memories to those whom she loved and served.

Graveside service will be held at 2 p.m. today at Pinewood-Weeks Cemetery, 625 Gordin, Pinewood.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Trinity Bible Church, 3589 Mary Ader Ave., Charleston, SC 29414 or to Gethsemane Baptist Church, 655 Hammond Cross Road, St. Matthews, SC 29135.
