Betty Scott

Betty was born in Kinmount in 1928. In 1956 she and her husband, Bill Scott, took over a general store on the main street in the village. Scott’s Store in downtown Kinmount became combination tourist information, meeting place and local landmark. They sold everything from soup to nuts. From her office at the back of the store she ran political campaigns, Kinmount Fair, meetings of every description, coffee breaks, news conferences, radio interviews, luncheon receptions, family reunions and just about every other event you could think of. Every Friday, a doctor would call in to pick up a list of patients for house calls, and sometimes even treating clients right in the office. She compiled a list of customers for the local heating oil company. Her office was also the second largest distributor of mail in the village.
And when there was no bank in Kinmount, she served as a financial trustee for some residents while cashing cheques for others. She practiced the old time business motto of ‘customer service comes first’. Betty was always a community person, often providing services and aid to those in need, frequently at her own expense as well.
She was the rock who held the business and her family together.
