God said, I need a woman with a heart larger than life, with a compassion and concern greater for the lives she touches rather than her own. A woman destined to become a beloved daughter, wife, mother, sister, meme and friend. So God gave us Scottie Windham Street. For this we are truly thankful, and on December 4, 2021 we gave back to God this gift that He graciously shared with us.
Funeral Services honoring the life of Scottie will be at 11 AM Saturday, December 18 in The Heritage Chapel of Ripley Funeral Home with her friend, Bro. Doc Shelton officiating. Burial will follow in Wiers's Chapel Cemetery.
Scottie was born on the beautiful summer day of June 28, 1951 in Ripley. She was the ninth and last child born to the late Bradford Scott and Norma Ellen Coleman Windham. After attending Ripley High School, Scottie was employed with local manufacturing companies that included PEP Industries and Red Kap, Corporation. A homemaker while her children were young, she returned to work following in her mother's footsteps as custodian for the Ripley Elementary School and Ripley Kindergarten for many years. After retiring from the South Tippah School District, Scottie enjoyed working at Tippah County Growers, helping many friends and families with their homes and business and was currently working with Ripley Funeral Home.
A Christian, Scottie's world revolved around her family. She was more than happy to be the central figure in their lives. Anyone who knew her children knew that she was truly a star in their eyes and that's all that ever mattered to her.
Scottie was a force of a woman, loved by all and you weren't considered just a friend- but family. Stopping to talk to friends, running errands for others or picking up grandchildren, she spent countless miles driving her truck on highway 15 with one of many small cups of McDonald's coffee. We love you, Scottie, and will never, ever forget you.
Visitation will be from 5 PM to 8 PM Friday, December 17 at The Ripley Funeral Home.
Blessed with a large family, memories will continue to be shared by her children, Dave Bruce (Jeanette) and Robbie Street (Becky Irwin), both of Ripley and Michelle Merritt (Shawn Hilliard) of Memphis, one sister, Kay Windham of Ripley, ten grandchildren, Lena Rodman (Andrew), Winston Frazier, Ayla Bruce, Brandon Street (Rena Burchett), Bryan Lee Street (Lauren), Amber Street (Shannon Pedigo), Brent Street, Katelyn Carter, Katelyn Merritt (Shawn Winkles) and Brandy Merritt, six great grandchildren, Elliott, Eliana, Destiny, Noah, Ashton and Stella, brother in law, Shannon Street, special friends, Patty Smith, Molly Akins, Palmer Jones, the staff of Ripley Funeral Home and her loyal canine companion, "Izzy".
