Rose Scott, formerly of Hiller, turned 104 years old on Feb. 1.
“Miss Van Dee,” as she is affectionately called, is the living matriarch of five family generations. She and her late husband, Samuel Scott, were owners of Scott’s Garbage Business for many years. In addition, she was a well-known and respected barber and community member.
Rose is the mother of six children, four of whom are still living; grandmother to 11 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren and 11 great- great-grandchildren.
She attributes her longevity to her faith in God and the life she lives.
