Helen went on to Morgantown to earn a degree at West Virginia University, then became a pioneering female accountant at DuPont & Co, where she met her life mate Mr. John L. Scott; she married Jack in 1953 in Wilmington, Del. They moved to North Augusta in 1974 where she joined H&R Block and had a 40-year career as a tax-preparer, serving CSRA clients who often became friends.

She is further survived by a sister Betty Richardson Fonner, Morgantown, as well as five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren in whom she took great pleasure. She was widowed in 2009.
