Anna was born in Kensington Philadelphia and was raised in the Andalusia section of Bucks County. In the early 1980's Anna moved to Indiana where she resided for 21 years before returning to Philadelphia in 2004.

Anna graduated in 1931 from the very first Bensalem High School where she was the Secretary and President each and every year. She participated in many other activities that included the Choral, Latin and French clubs; the Tennis Team and Debate team. Anna was the chief pianist for the Drama club each year and was a staff reporter and editor for the high school Bensalemite Newspaper. It was said she had "done much to make the Bensalmite Newspaper a success".

At the age of 16, Anna swam across the Delaware River from Cornwells Heights to the New Jersey side. Unheard of, it was published in the newspaper the following day.

In 1931, Anna attended the Palmer School of Business. That same year, she married her sweet heart Walter Scott and they were blessed with two children. However, her beloved Walter was tragically killed in an auto accident after only four years of marriage.

Anna was employed by from the Philadelphia Transportation Co. (PTC), known today as SEPTA, for 45 years as head of the Payroll Division where she then retired.

Anna's greatest passions were traveling with her mother to visit family, singing and playing the piano for her family, reading, and enjoying a piece of chocolate and a scotch and water each evening.

In her own words, Anna said her greatest accomplishments and achievements were "to take care of, to love and to make her family happy".

Anna Samanthia Scott, you far exceeded your commitment to your family. We will miss you. We thank you and we love you dearly, Your Family.
