Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Ms. Helen Jeanette Scott was born May 9, 1934 in Evansville, Indiana to the late Cora McCoy Robinson and Herschel Robinson. She spent much of her life as a homemaker raising her seven children. With seven children, Ms. Scott was quite tough in order to keep all the children in line. She enjoyed spending time outdoors whether gardening or visiting the local yard and garage sales. She learned to drive by calling the Sears Roebuck company, which gladly sent out an employee to teach her. After she accomplished driving, she was given the perfect vehicle for her yard-sale adventures, a yellow VW station wagon. She was Baptist by faith and enjoyed her preaching shows, especially “Billy Graham.” In her spare time, she would always have her Bible nearby to read. Throughout the years, she enjoyed spending time with her family, especially when she would get to travel with her children to various places.
Ms. Helen Jeanette Scott, 83, of Columbus, Georgia passed away Monday, January 15, 2018 at her home. She is preceded in death by her parents; first husband and love of her life, Lawrence Eli Vaughn; second husband, Billy J. Scott; children, Ricky Vaughn, Danny Vaughn, and Brenda Olson; two brothers and two sisters; and her faithful poodle, Sam.
