January 12, 1935 - September 28, 2020
Thomasena Bell Scott passed away Monday, September 28, 2020, with her children by her side. Born January 12, 1935, in Ridgeway, South Carolina, she was the first-born daughter of the late Alice Marie Rodgers Bell and Thomas J. Tucker. Raised in Ridgeway, Thomasena was baptized at an early age at her local worship center, Antioch Baptist Church. Educated in the public schools of Richland County, she was a 1953 graduate of C.A. Johnson High School. With aspirations of becoming a registered nurse (RN), Thomasena began working at the Crafts-Farrow Mental Health Hospital. Her plans changed when she met the love of her life, a tall handsome man James Samuel (Sammie) Scott, whom she married February 25, 1954, in Columbia, South Carolina. To their loving union, two children: a son Roger and daughter Samara; were born. Sammie and "Tommie," as he affectionately caller her, moved to the Greenview Community, right down the street from a little green church called Greenview First Baptist Church. Longing for her church home and true to the church covenant, she united with Greenview First Baptist Church, where she remained a faithful member. At Greenview First Baptist, she served as a deaconess and added her voice to the Senior Musical Choir (later renamed the Voices of Praise). Thomasena had a noble heart and loved her husband, family and friends dearly. She was a successful gardener and enjoyed reading. She was a proud God-fearing woman, who was a strong role model and patriarch. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband. She leaves to cherish her memory two children: Roger (Earline) Scott and Samara Scott Green (James) Hart, both of Columbia; six grandchildren: LaShanda R. Scott, James S. Scott II, Erin D. Scott, Michel C. Green-Pauling, Alicia M. Green, all of Columbia, and Michael A. Green II of Nashville, Tennessee; six great-grandchildren: Darius Jackson, Javonte Scott, Aubrei Green, George Pauling, Amir Green, and Ava Scott; a sister Micheline Y. Bell of Columbia; a very dear friend Vivian Jackson; other relatives and friends who will miss her dearly.
