Merilyn Scott was born in Okarche, OK in 1933. She grew up on a farm where her parents raised chickens and cattle. She graduated from El Reno High School, in 1950. After years as a full-time mother to seven children, she returned to school to complete her Associate degree in medical records from Penn Valley Community College. Merilyn was a devout Catholic and worked as a Communion Minister at the church and for the homebound and hospitalized. One of her greatest passions besides her faith was her gardening.
