Gwendolyn Scott-Prince

March 24, 1953 ~ May 9, 2020 (age 67)


Gwendolyn Scott-Prince was born on March 24, 1953 to the late Dewey Brooks, Sr. and Eloise Smith Brooks.

Gwendolyn was the eldest of seven children and was educated in the Duval County school system.  She was a graduate of Stanton High School and attended Florida Community College at Jacksonville. She was one of the First African-American Aerobics Instructors at Kennedy Community Center and was an avid Model around the City and did print advertisements in local magazines.

Gwendolyn had a passion for youth and volunteered at her children’s & nephew’s schools over the years.  During some Summers she worked with local youth for Team Up and had a passion for giving which sparked her to start donating Prom dresses to local High School girls whose families were in need.  Gwendolyn was also zealous about Ministry and recently worked as a Prayer Minster in her Church.  She loved traveling to Conventions and on Family vacations with her children and grand-children and one of her favorite destinations included Hawaii.  

Gwendolyn had a special love for spending time with her grandchildren at the Beach, at the Park, visiting other family members and for taking them for ice cream on Sunday afternoons after Church.  She also especially loved weekend sleepovers with them which included pizza, watching cartoons & movies.

Gwendolyn leaves to cherish her memories, her four children, Deandre Lang, Sr. (Judy), Leibra’ Watson (Will), Tenise Scott and Semein Scott; five grandchildren who will miss her dearly, Deandre Lang, Jr., Destiny Lang (their mother, Tara Williams), Collin Watson, Xzharia Scott and Chyler Watson; two great-grandchildren, Deandre Lang, III and Camryn King; two brothers, Dewey Brooks, Jr. and Montreal Brooks; three sisters, Cynthia Brooks, Gloria Brooks and Kay Brooks; aunts, Mary Smith, Lois-Jean Smith and Gladys Flagg; nephews, Earl Johnson, III, Shedrick Johnson and Kobe Brooks; nieces, Chelsea Brooks and China Brooks; god-children as well as a host of great-nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.
