Claudette Scott

June 8, 1941 ~ November 16, 2020 (age 79)




On a late spring day, June 8, 1941 in Orange, Texas,a beautiful baby girl was born to

the late Haywood and Evelina ( Evelyn ) Shelton.  They named their new bundle of joy,

Claudetta Shelton, better known to many as Claudette.   The family moved to Westlake, LA.

Claudette attended grade school in Westlake and later spent her high school years at

Mossville High School, from which she graduated in 1960.  While in Mossville High, she met

the “love of her life”, the late Louis J. Scott.  Shortly after graduation, the two married and

they moved to “land of milk and honey” ( California ).  The couple had no children.  They

thoroughly enjoyed life together.


After many years   in California, they moved back home.  Claudette became the care-taker for

her aging mother.  She transitioned early Monday morning on November 16, 2020.  She leaves

to cherish her memories: Her 106 year old mother, Evelyn Shelton; her brother of Lake Charles,

Robert L. Shelton, Sr. ; her sister, Elvira Scott of  San Francisco, California;  her Godchild

Tanya ( Tammy ) Bluford; other nieces ,nephews, cousins and friends.

Claudetta ( Claudette ) will forever be in our hearts.


                                                                    LET ME GO

                                               When I come to the end of the road

                                                     And the sun has set for me

                                               I want no rites in a gloom filled room

                                                     Why cry for a soul set free?


                                               Miss me a little, but not for long

                                              And not with your head bowed low.

                                            Remember the love that once we shared

                                                      Miss me but “Let me go”.
