Harriet Dian Scott Charles, 71, passed away October 6, 2018 in St. George. She was born in Eldon, Missouri, July 3, 1947 to Andrew Jackson and Ruth Maxine Price Scott. Her father was a sergeant in the army, so the family moved around a lot in her childhood years. The family lived in Bar-le-Duc, France and Regensburg, Germany. While in Europe, the family took the opportunity to travel through the different countries. She also moved around the U.S. to the different posts where her father was assigned.

One of her hobbies was roller skating. It was at a roller rink where she met her future husband, Casey in 1966. They dated off and on until Casey moved back to California in 1970. They started corresponding and while Casey was at the Army Intelligence School at Ft. Bragg, NC, he surprised her by proposing over the phone.
Casey didn’t call for three days, and Dian didn’t tell anyone because she wasn’t sure that she heard him right. They married on September 5, 1975, a marriage that has lasted 43 years, 1 month and 1 day.
After the marriage, they moved to Pasadena, California, where she worked as a legal secretary, a secretary at The California Institute of Technology, and finally, as a certified nursing assistant.
In 1988, they moved to Prescott, AZ where she worked as a security guard and later as a receptionist at a local radio station.
