Betty was born June 4, 1930 in Getty, South Dakota to Oris and Ruth (Satterlee) Curts. She was one of six siblings. In 1948, Betty met Walter Earl Scott, and on January 15, 1950, the couple was married in Seattle, Washington. Unprecedented in today's society, next month the couple would have celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary; a testament to their long standing love and devotion. The couple traveled around the country allowing Walter to work in road construction before settling in the Scottsbluff area in 1962. The couple had four children, Michael, Marcia, Rick and Randy.

Betty worked as an Area Coordinator for TOPS Club, Inc. for 32 years before retiring in 2005. During her time with TOPS Club, Betty did substantial traveling and was able to meet and touch many lives. Betty was well known for her generosity, kindness, patience, and faithfulness. Her God given gift was to always find the best in others, the consummate peace keeper and restorer of relationships, friendships, etc. Betty's infinite capacity to love is her legacy and will be carried on through her three surviving children, nineteen grandchildren, twenty six great grandchildren, and one great great grandchild.

Survivors include her husband, Walter, of Minatare; daughter, Marcia (Chuck) Blumhardt of Aberdeen, SD; sons, Rick (Teresa) Scott of Cumberland, WV and Randy (Tammy) Scott of Scottsbluff; as well as numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, and one great great grandchild.

Preceding Betty in death were her parents, Oris and Ruth Curts; three sisters; two brothers; one great grandchild; and her son, Michael Eugene Scott.
