Emily R. (Jardin) Scott of Oak Bluffs died Oct. 26 at the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital. She was 89. 

Emily was born Feb. 18, 1930 on Martha’s Vineyard to the late Antone and Flora Canha Jardin of Vineyard Haven. She was a loving daughter, sister, wife, and mother. She loved to reminisce about past life on the Island and share her quick wit and humor with loved ones. She was an active churchgoer. 

A lifelong Islander, she worked as a telephone operator and later at Compass Bank. Known for her electric humor and vibrant and upbeat personality, she enjoyed interacting with patrons and the Island community. She retired when she was 77. 

Following retirement, she loved spending time with her family, playing cards and other games. She was an avid golf and tennis fan, and quite the admirer of Tiger Woods, whom she was able to meet during a tournament in Florida. 

She was married to Francis E. Scott 3rd who predeceased her; and is survived by her only son Francis E. Scott 4th and three grandchildren; her sister Flora Coutinho, two brothers, Manny and Tom Jardin, and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers, Frank and Tony Jardin, and two sisters Hilda Backus and Mary Jardin Taylor.
