Obituary of Margaret Etta Scott


MARGARET (PEGGY) E. SCOTT, the daughter of William B. Rice, Jr.  and Josephine J.

Rice, was born on February 19, 1952 in Indianapolis, Indiana.  She received her education

from the Indianapolis Public Schools, graduating from Crispus Attucks High School in 1970.

At an early age in life she was baptized in Jesus Name and filled with the precious gift

of the Holy Ghost. 

PEGGY attended Bethesda Temple during her childhood years.  Along

with her father, mother and siblings she later became a member at Christ Temple Apostolic

Faith Assembly where she served as an usher and sang with the women’s choir.

PEGGY later followed the leading of Bishop Byron V. Johnson and moved her

membership and service to New Wineskin Ministries.  At New Wineskin Ministries

PEGGY was an active member of the altar worker team, and she designed and created various

worship flags and banners for the church.

PEGGY was united in Holy Matrimony to Otis A. Scott and although this matrimony

dissipated, from that union were born Anthony R. Scott and Paula R. (Scott) Jones.

Early in her career she worked for Zares, Airway (Target), and later began her

seamstress career at The Westin Hotel for 20 years.  After leaving The Westin Hotel

PEGGY began working part-time for The Downtown Marriott and then transitioned to the JW Marriott

where she later retired in 2016 as a seamstress.

PEGGY’S greatest talent was her ability to create works of art as a skilled

seamstress.  She had a very quiet disposition, yet she did not allow her shyness to stop her

from sharing her love and the love of God with her family, friends and co-workers.  She

prayed for and encouraged many, leaving no one without her special touch and care.  Her

smile lit up a room, and her laugh was infectious.  We will miss her and pray that our

memories of her will fill our hearts and minds forever.

MARGARET (PEGGY) E. SCOTT, departed this life on Friday September 27, 2019 at

the age of sixty-seven years old.  Proceeded in death father, William B. Rice Jr. and mother Josephine J. Rice; brother

David A. Rice Sr.  She leaves to cherish her loving memory her son; Anthony R. Scott,
