Mildred Will, daughter of Daniel and Anna Mathey Will, was born October 19, 1918 in Fort Dodge. She graduated from Eagle Grove High School, attended Junior College and taught at Troy Township country school. On January 17, 1941, she married Donald E. Scott at the United Methodist Church in Vincent. He died on May 19, 2007.
For many years the couple farmed southwest of Eagle Grove. In the mid 50's, they moved to the Meadow View Farm south of Webster City where they farmed for over 20 years. In the early 70's, they purchased a farm in Minnesota where they farmed until 1983, when they retired to Webster City. In 1992 they moved to Loveland, CO. The couple was very involved in traveling on their Gold Wing motorcycle and for many years were members of the Christian Motorcycle Association. Their enthusiasm for the open road gave them an opportunity to cycle through 48 states. In 2002, they returned to Fort Dodge. Mildred had been residing at Crestview since 2007.
