In memory of
Kaye Brockman Scott
Kaye Brockman Scott Kaye Scott, 69, passed away on Thursday, October 6, 2016. Kaye was born November 17, 1946 in Detroit, Michigan and leaves behind her husband Harold Scott, age 69, daughters Leslie Scott, age 34, and Natalie Scott, age 31, step-son Harold Davon Waters, age 42, and mother Betty Brockman, age 93. She is survived by her brother Keith, sister-in-law Joann, nephews Jeffery and Craig and loving aunt Jean. She is further survived by her sister Lynn, brother-in-law Richard, and nephew Scott. She also leaves behind a host of cousins and other relatives. She was pre-deceased by her father John, age 98, and her young nephew Michael. Kaye grew up in Detroit, Michigan and worked her way through Wayne State University, graduating in 1973. She then joined the Detroit Police Department, where she spent most of her time working narcotics and homicide investigations. Kaye met and married the love of her life, Harold C. Scott, in 1977. Kaye returned to school and completed a master's degree in psychology at the University of Detroit-Mercy in 1992. When she retired from the Detroit Police Department in 1993, she began working as an outpatient therapist at St. Joseph Mental Health Clinic in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She loved her work at the clinic and is proud that she was able to help others find hope and joy in their lives. Upon her retirement for the second time in 2007, Kaye and Harold discovered Hilton Head Island and fell in love with its beauty, its people, and all of its activities including golf and, of course, tennis. Thank you to Kaye's many tennis friends, especially her team members. She truly loved you all. While Kaye was living in Detroit, two bright and beautiful stars graced her universe. She regretfully leaves these young daughters to continue on with their successful lives as New York attorneys. She helped them both through their New York state bar exams and continued to support their hard-earned successes. She could not have been more proud of them. Kaye was also extremely proud of her step-son Davon, who is an esteemed professor at the University of Michigan. The love she had for her family will never die. Her last wisdom to her family was: "When you struggle in life, as we all do, please feel my arms wrapped around you." We will all be lucky to continue to feel Kaye's arms wrapped around us, both during times of joy and in times of need. A memorial gathering will be held Saturday, October 22 from 2:00 -4:00 PM at The Island Funeral Home and Crematory, 4 Cardinal Road, Hilton Head Island, SC. Donations may be made to the American Cancer Society. theislandfuneralhome.com A life well lived!
