Celebrating the Life of Marvel Louis Scott
MARVEL LOUIS SCOTT was born August 29, 1953 to the union of Louis Adam Scott and Alice Pearl Randolph Scott.
Excited about their new addition to the family, Louis gave Marvel her first name after Marva Trotter, heavyweight boxer Joe Louis’ wife and included his name as her middle name.
Marvel graduated from Hebert High School, Home of the fighting Panthers, in 1971.
She started working at Southwestern Bell, Houston, TX in 1975 as a Directory Assistance Operator. Not shy, Marvel eagerly embraced the opportunity to provide excellent customer service to the public. Her journey for helping others had begun.
After a short tenure, Marvel returned to Beaumont, TX with her precious daughter, Joy Jolivet in February 1978. Motherhood was a cherished blessing in her eyes. She always wanted Joy to have the very best of everything. So, she demonstrated the importance of family, education and persistence before her.
As a joint – entrepreneur of Scottie’s Little Corner Store, Marvel witnessed her mother, Alice, provide top notch nservice to their neighbors as well as to the Golden Triangle community. Scottie’s Little Corner Store closed in the summer of 1990; but, love for the community and patrons was so rewarding that God’s path led her to a future business venture – Lots of Love Care for the Elderly was born.
Marvel enrolled in Lamar University-Orange, TX to study nursing. As a student, she worked in nursing homes, home health agencies and hospitals. In 1990, Marvel graduated from LU-Orange as a Licensed Vocational Nurse.
Her desire to a provide personal care to the critically ill was in obedience to God’s plan and His divine will for her life. Patients as well as their family members accepted Christ as Marvel told Jesus’ story to them.
Although Marvel accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior at an early age, she re-dedicated her life to Christ at Goodwill Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Colbert. Her hunger to be completely sold out to Christ, His will and His Church was revived. Marvel quickly embarked upon her purpose driven life that Christ had bestowed upon her. Her faith was strengthened and her desire to fulfill God’s will was renewed.
This renewed faith led her to unite with Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Kavin Jones, Sr. Her passion to spread the good news about Jesus’ resurrection power was like ‘FIRE, shut up in her bones!’ She sought to learn more about Jesus while using the gifts that He had given to her to edify the body of Christ and to tell others about Him. Discipleship, Evangelism Explosion, Prison Ministry, Purity and Purpose, Scripture in Motion were just a few ministries that she actively engaged in. The Word of God was her life’s blueprint. She pressed God for her next assignment. She enrolled in the College of Biblical Studies in May, 2018 to focus on Women’s ministry.
During the midst of her life changing experiences, she was still hearing the message of witnessing and evangelism. In her departure, her witness is continued “But seek ye the first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” Matthew 6:33.
Preceding her in death was her mother, Alice Pearl Randolph Scott; sister, Emma Jean Kyles; maternal grandparents, Paul/Stella Randolph and paternal grandparents, Bennie/Rachel Scott.
Celebrating her memories is daughter, Joy Rachel’ Edwards; father, Louis Adam Scott; grandson, Dillon Xavier Edwards; aunt, Janiece Randolph White (Betty); nieces: Nicole A. Kyles-Burton and Kimberly M. Kyles Murphy (Michael); god-children: Marlon Adams, II, and Anastasia Allen; a host of other relatives and special friends.
Celebration of Life memorial services will be on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 11 a.m. at Ebenezer Baptist Church located at 675 College St. in Beaumont.
