Obituary

Lena Mae Scarborough, beloved daughter of the late James and Amanda Godwin Williams, was born on February 9, 1923 in Wattsville, Virginia. She departed this earthly life on July 9, 2020 at Coliseum Convalescent & Rehab Center in Hampton, Virginia.

Lena received her education in the public schools of Accomack County. She worked in various industries and over the years. Her last place of employment was at Perdue Farms, where she was regarded as a loyal employee for many years.

Lena was married to the late Dennis Scarborough. At an early age, she joined Friendship United Methodist Church. In later years, she joined St. John United Methodist Church in Atlantic and then rejoined Friendship United Methodist Church. Lena loved to listen to traditional Gospel music.

In her leisure, she enjoyed completing word searches and reminiscing about the “good ole” days. She would share stories about working in the fields and at Kelley’s Plant. Her stories always included Ms. Greta Nock, Ms. Virginia Williams, Ms. Vernada Logan, Ms. Julia Chandler, Ms. Effie Lou Fletcher, and Ms. Sue Dorsey. Lena also loved motorcycles; she loved the sound of them revving up.

In addition to her parents and husband, Lena was preceded in death by her siblings, Viola Williams Wilson, her identical twin, Laura Williams Cornish, Mary, Martha, Lillian, Hattie, Lola, Thelma Williams; three brothers who died at birth; and a niece and nephew she considered as her children, Christina Wilson Williams and Willie Wilson.

Lena leaves to cherish her memories: three daughters, Bessie Scarborough, Joyce Scarborough, and Sarah Scarborough Taylor; two grandchildren, Melvin Scarborough and Dottie Scarborough; one great-grandson, Duston Scarborough; nieces and nephews that she considered as her children, Marian Summerville, Queenola Wilson, Robert (Paula) Wilson, Jr., Lester Wilson, and Alexander “Sammy” Wilson; special cousin, Esther Godwin Britt; and a host of other nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.

    Notes
    In the light of the evolving situation with COVID-19 virus, we are making adjustments to adapt to the current health emergency. In order to reduce the spread of the virus in our community, we are limiting the public’s access to our facility. We will continue to serve our families with the utmost dignity, as well as maintain the safety guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
    Cooper & Humbles Funeral Co., Inc. will comply and hold all services private until further notice. We will not have any public viewings. In an effort to accommodate family and friends, we are posting photos and the funeral/graveside service video of your loved ones on their respective Book of Memory pages on our website, www.cooperandhumbles.com. This will allow you to have a lasting memory picture and attend the service virtually. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time and as soon as this matter is resolved, we will resume our normal practices.
