Argrie Scott, at the age of 95, resided at 28 Argyle Road, Newark, DE. She was called home to Glory on May 25, 2020. Argrie was born in Halifax, NC., on January 30, 1925 to Leroy and Hester (Dove) Hill. She is survived by her only daughter, Agnes Owens of Newark, DE. She is survived by her sister, Mildred Hammond of Georgia and her brother and sister-in-law, James and Sophia Hill of Bloomfield, NJ. She leaves to cherish her memories, her sister-in-law, Vera Hill of New Jersey; two granddaughters, Brenda Lowery and Barbara Artis; nine great-grandchildren, a host of relatives and friends. Argrie is preceded in death by her parents Mr. and Mrs. Leroy Hill; adopted brother, Willie Perkins; two sisters, Mary Florence Hill and Lugean Hill; three brothers, Charles Hill, Sr., Floyd Hill and Roy Lee Hill. She is also preceded in death by her granddaughter, Beverly Owens, and great-granddaughter, Brittany Owens.
Among her many achievements, beginning at the early age of 18 in 1952, Argrie moved her dad, Leroy Hill, her mom, Hester Hill and all of her siblings to Newark, NJ., from Enfield, NC. They all resided at 110 Brunswick Street and later moved next door to 108 Brunswick Street. She worked many years for Mrs. Heller and Dr. Parcenett. To say that she left an impact on many of her family, friends and co-workers is truly an understatement. Argrie was retired and resided in Newark, DE., with her daughter. She was known to many as Argrie, Big Sis, Ree or Nana. She was truly loved by all that she came in contact with as she journeyed through her life of 95 years. Her kind gentle spirit and her willingness to help others in need will never be forgotten.
Argrie strongly believed in keeping family members connected through weddings, cookouts, parties or just getting together to talk about old times in the living room, kitchen or the backyard. She had a great passion for cooking some of her favorite foods, such as coconut cakes, “finger lickin’ fried chicken”, pineapple upside down cakes or watermelon pickled rinds preserved in mason jars were a reminder of her deep southern roots. Oh, we must not forget about her homemade ice-cream.
Her legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone that she interacted with as well as those she reached but never met.
A Fallen Limb
A limb has fallen from the family tree. I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me”. Remember the best times, the laughter, the song. The good life I lived while I was strong. Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you. Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through. My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest. Remembering all, how I truly was blessed. Continue traditions no matter how small. Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls. I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin. Until the day comes we’re together again.
Nana you will always be my “Shining Star”
Loving “U” always, Brenda
The family wishes to acknowledge with deep appreciation the many expressions of love, concern and kindness shown during this time of bereavement. May God Bless and Keep You in His Care!
