April 21, 1951 - January 7, 2021
Ms. Susie A. Scales, beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend entered this world to begin her earthly journey on April 21, 1951 to the union of the late Arthur Wilson, Sr. and the late Ada Mae Atchinson Wilson in Talladega, Alabama. At an early age, Susie accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior and united with Peace Missionary Baptist Church where she devotedly served and enjoyed working in the kitchen. As a child, Ms. Scales attended and graduated from Westside School. Upon completing school, she would later become a nutritionist supervisor at Citizen’s Baptist Medical Center. Along Susie’s life journey, she met and married Mr. Sidney James Scales, Jr. and to this union five beautiful children were raised, Sidney, III, Stanley, Eddie, Jackie, Lee, and Amy. For 35 years, Susie would walk from her apartment in College Hill to Citizen’s Hospital to help support her family. After bestowing all those dedicated years of work, Susie retired in October 2008 so she could spend more quality time with her family and particularly her grandchildren. She loved cooking and caring for her grandchildren more than anything. Not only was her chosen hobby cooking, but Susie also loved puzzling. As Susie’s earthly journey suddenly came to an unexpected end in the early morning hour of Thursday, January 7, 2021. She peacefully accepted her angelic wings as she answered the call of her Master while surrounded by her loved ones. Preceding her in death is her husband, Sidney James Scales, Jr.; parents, Arthur Wilson, Sr. and Ada Mae Atchinson Wilson; brothers, Arthur Wilson, Jr. and Levi Wilson. Susie leaves behind all her love and precious memories to be cherished by her four sons, Sidney (Kim) Scales, III of Baltimore, Maryland, Stanley (Wanda) Scales, Eddie Scales, and Jackie Lee (Kellie) Scales, all of Talladega; one daughter, Amy Scales of Talladega; fifteen grandchildren, Willie Dickerson, Synetra Scales, Sidney Scales, IV, Whitney Scales, D’Angelo Scales, Tyrese Scales, Cymarion Scales, Chantelle Tuck Marshall, Myieshia Scales, Nigel Scales, Eryn Stockdale Wolf, Trakira Duncan Miller, Charvinski Scales, Endiya Scales and Ja’Quan Scales; two brothers, Eddie Wilson and Jack Wilson; three sisters, Ola Mae Wilson, Linda (Cleveland) Wilson, and Lillian Wilson; special extended family, LaTasha Heard and Gloria Scales; special friends, Sallie Moten and Cecil McCargo; and a host of great- grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, other relative and friends.
