Massie Scott Fleming entered into eternal rest the morning of December 4, 2022. She was a graduate of Bennett College and a devout employee of the Industrial Bank of Washington from 1951 until she retired in 1997. She served with all three of the bank's presidents, holding various administrative and executive positions, including Chief Executive Officer, Executive Vice President, and Secretary of the Board upon retirement. Her professional diligence and meteoric rise in the industry was captured by HBCU Money magazine in an article titled, “The Most Powerful Women in African-American Owned Banks”. In a quote from another article, she stated: "I started at the bank as a bookkeeper 42 years ago. At that time U Street was a very important street with theaters, shops, and hotels… Nearly all of them were customers of the bank… Entertainers used to come in... I remember I was on the window and Ella Fitzgerald came in with a whole pile of money and we were kind of excited, of course… It was a prosperous time."\n\nMrs. Fleming moved to the 400 Block of Oneida Place, NW in 1958 and was one of the most highly respected residents among her neighbors and mentees. Her love for her Brightwood neighborhood extended to her membership at the Albright Memorial United Methodist Church just two blocks from where she lived. The commitment and dedication of a young woman who moved from Lawrenceville, Virginia to the District of Columbia and immediately began to serve its residents with unfailing energy and passion was truly a gain for the city. Her professional contributions to her community and the banking industry are immeasurable. \n\nMrs. Fleming was preceded in death by her husband Marion Fleming, brother Alfred E. Scott Jr, sister Jennie Scott Maclin, niece Janet Maclin Mitchell, and the love of her life, her son and world-renowned musician, LeRoy Fleming. She rarely had a conversation with anyone where she didn’t mention how much she loved and missed LeRoy. She was his devout supporter and music lover so much so, that she hosted LeRoy’s band rehearsals (The Young Senators) in the basement of her home. \n\nMrs. Fleming is survived by her sister-in-law Gloria Scott, niece Debbie Scott, nephew Hermon Maclin, Jr.(Ruth), great niece Michelle Gordon (Chad), great nephews Brian Mitchell (Christina), Joshua Maclin, Derek Mitchell and a host of other relatives and friends. Services will be held December 16, 2022 at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, 13801 Georgia Ave., Silver Spring, MD at 11:00. Reverend Hall officiating. Arrangements by Ronald Taylor II Funeral Homes.
