Irene Elizabeth Scott, 91, of Fredericksburg, entered Heaven on Wednesday, August 21, 2019.
Irene was born on January 11, 1928 in Sarasota, FL to Hugh and Minerva Greer. As the wife of a U.S. Marine Corps Officer, she made a home in various places but lived most of her life in Virginia.
Irene was a woman of great faith and boundless unconditional love, and liked nothing more than when all her family would gather. She was an incredibly strong woman who was tested many times in her life. Irene was kind and grateful until the end. In her early life Irene had many different jobs and also volunteered. Locally she worked at the Free Lance Star, J.C. Penney, and volunteered for many years at Mary Washington Hospital Thrift Shop.
Irene is survived by her four children, Suzanne Metzger (Paul), Robert Scott, Jerome Scott (Toni), Cynthia Williams (Brian); six grandchildren Amy Lawrence (Erik), Elizabeth Stephenson (James), Jesse Scott (Lisa), Fallon Williams, Katherine Scott and Austin Scott; three great-grandchildren Michael Hassett, Greyson, and Beckett; one brother Charles Greer (Yolanda); and niece Janice. She was preceded in death by her parents.
The family would like to thank the nurses, caregivers and administrators at Westport Rehabilitation & Nursing Center in Richmond for the exemplary care that Irene and her family received.
The family will receive friends from 4:30-6:00 p.m., with a rosary beginning at 4 p.m., on Sunday, August 25 at Covenant Funeral Service, Fredericksburg. A Funeral Mass will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, August 26 at St. Jude Catholic Church, 9600 Caritas St., Fredericksburg. Interment will follow in Ivy Hill Cemetery, in Alexandria.
