She graduated from Stanton High School and then worked in Red Oak at JC Penney.  She later moved to Atlantic, Iowa, where she was employed as a secretary at Larson & Lowers a local implement dealer.  It was in Atlantic where Frances met and later married William R. “Bill” Scott on September 12, 1958.  In 1960 the couple moved to Knoxville and purchased Marion County Abstract Co.  Frances worked in the abstract office with Bill until they sold the business to their nephew, Chris Hoegh, in 1983.  Frances was active in the First Presbyterian Church, PEO and Mentor Study Club.  She was also a 50-year member of the Eastern Star.
