Born in Bannock, Ohio, she was the daughter of the late Charles R. and Faye Irene (Piper) Scott and had retired from the bakery department at Giant Eagle in Dover. Better known as “Aunt Beanie”, she loved caring for her immaculate yard and garden, enjoyed doing counted cross stitch projects and playing with her beloved shelties, Casey, Ginger and Buddy.

In addition to her parents, Aunt Beanie was also preceded in death by her husband Ron Althouse, her brother, Charles “Bo” Scott and her sister Judy Lucas.
In keeping with her wishes, “Aunt Beanie” is to be buried alongside of her parents, during a private service, in Union Cemetery at St. Clairsville. The Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home in New Philadelphia is handling the arrangements.
