Emily R. (Jardin) Scott of Oak Bluffs died on October 26, 2019 surrounded by family at the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital. She was 89 years old.
Emily was born February 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. Emily loved to reminisce about past life on the Island and share her quick wit and humor with loved ones. She was an active churchgoer and loved the Lord.
A lifelong islander, Emily worked as a telephone operator and went on to work at Compass Bank (now Martha’s Vineyard National Bank). Known for her electric humor and vibrant and up-beat personality, she enjoyed interacting with patrons and the island community. She retired when she was 77 years old.
Following her retirement, she loved spending time with her family, playing cards and other games. Emily was an avid golf and tennis fan, and quite the admirer of Tiger Woods, who she was able to meet during a tournament in Florida and the picture has hung on her wall ever since.
She is preceded in death by her brothers, Frank and Tony Jardin, and her two sisters Hilda Backus and Mary Jardin Taylor. She is survived by her sister Flora Coutinho, two brothers, Manny and Tom Jardin, and many nieces and nephews.
She was married to Francis E. Scott III who preceded her in death and is survived by her only son Francis E. Scott IV and three grandchildren Matthew, Samuel, and Naomi Scott.
