Edna Mae C. Scott Seamstress

December 30, 1990

Services for Edna Mae Cornick Scott, a seamstress and saleswoman who measured countless choirs, clergy, doctors, ushers and nurses for robes and uniforms, will be held at 7:30 p.m. today at Christ United Methodist Church, Chase and Washington Streets in East Baltimore.

Mrs. Scott, a lifelong resident of Baltimore, died of a heart attack Wednesday at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. She was 73.

In the early '50s, she went to work for the Franklin Uniform Co., where she was known as "Miss Edna." In 1984 she was voted salesperson of the year. She was semi-retired from Franklin.

She married David V. Scott in 1943. Her husband, who died in May, owned a barbershop on Pennsylvania Avenue called Scotty's.

Mrs. Scott was a lifelong member of the Zorah Elliott Temple No. 717 of the Improved Benevolent Protective Order of the Elks of the World, where she was financial secretary for more than 25 years.

She was an avid bowler and shopper and loved to be with people.

She is survived by a son, David V. Scott Jr.; a daughter, Alice J. Smith; a sister, Alice Rollins; two brothers, Joseph and Calvin Cornick; and three grandchildren. All are of Baltimore.
