Helen M. Scott 1902 - 1980

Helen M. Scott was born in 1902 and died in 1980. She was the youngest child of Arthur Carroll Scott Sr, co-founder of the Scott and White Hospital, and Maud Marcia Sherwood of Temple Texas.  Her paternal grandparents were Martha Helen Moran and Rufus F. Scott originally from Tennessee they moved to Texas in a Rockaway Carriage in 1858.  Helen married Walker William Saulsbury.  

Though Helen was from a wealthy family she spent time helping out at her father's hospital.  After the death of her husband in 1944, her involvement in the Presbyterian Church led to missionary and volunteer work in hospitals in India, Thailand, Indonesia, China, Philipines and Japan.  Helen also travelled with other missionaries to speak to Presbyterian congregations about the work the missionaries were doing.   

In addition, Helen had a love of the arts with a particular interest in theatre.  She was one of the original Board of Governors of the Temple Civic Theatre which was chartered in 1968.  

She and her husband are buried in Hillcrest Cemetery in Temple Texas.
