Mrs. Scott was born October 6, 1941 in Orlando, Florida. She was the daughter of the late Robert and Marie Read. Mrs. Scott and her late husband, Keith K. Scott raised their three children in the Matthews area before retiring to Florida. Prior to retirement, Mrs. Scott worked as a manager for Waccamaw Pottery and Dollar General.

She shared her love for the Lord through her smile and caring nature. She often expressed to her friends and family how much she was blessed in life. Mrs. Scott enjoyed being with her family and reminiscing. She was also an avid game show watcher and loved to read.
