Nolie Edward Scott
October 30, 1939 ~ November 2, 2022 (age 83) 83 Years Old
On November 2, 2022, the Reverend Doctor Nolie Edward (“Ed”) Scott passed away with family by his side at his home in Maryland. He was born on October 20, 1939 and grew up in Blountsville, Alabama. Together with his sister, Jane, they donated a portion of the family farm to the Blountsville Historical Society, which is now a public park. Ed was an avid reader as a child. His love of education and learning took him far. He attended the University of Alabama as an undergraduate and subsequently earned his PhD in nuclear chemistry from Purdue University. He first worked in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for Westinghouse. In 1978 he moved to Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he worked for the Tennessee Valley Authority as a senior scientist and manager until his retirement in 2000. His post-retirement work focused on ministry through the Episcopal Church. He was ordained as a Deacon in 2001 and served at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Hixson, where he directed a day care center for Alzheimer's patients. He later moved to Christ Church where he helped the parish transition to a new rector. In 2012, Ed moved to Maryland, where he served at St. Andrew’s in Glenwood and was active in the men’s group. He served in a special ministry in Baltimore, preparing back-to-school backpacks and Thanksgiving dinners and running a summer reading camp. He will be remembered as a gentle and loving person who tended animals and always lent a helping hand to family, friends, church members, and recently, to an Afghan refugee family making a new home in the US. He is survived by his wife Susan of 53 years, his daughters Jennifer Scott (Craig) of Ellicott City, Maryland and Maggie Greenfield (Jeremy) of Bronx, New York; his grandchildren Oliver, Alma, Stella, and Samuel; and, his sister Jane Wright (Kenneth) of Blountsville, Alabama. A memorial service for Ed will be held on Dec 17, 2022 at 11am at St. Andrew’s Union Chapel in Glenwood, MD. Union Chapel is located on the corner of Route 97 and Union Chapel Road.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church or to the church’s Refugee Assistance Fund. Checks can be mailed to: St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, PO Box 52, Glenwood, MD 21738.
