Gutterman, CEO of Jewish Family Services in Columbus and a former director of Ohio’s Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation, said she owes her career to the Myerses. As the state rehabilitation director, she worked with thousands of counselors, but the finest were those trained by the Myerses.
"Their gift to their student was to imbue in all of us their values, their pursuit of excellence and their ability to see the person, not the disability,” she said. “As simple as this may sound, they created a cadre of professionals who literally transformed our field and changed the lives of thousands upon thousands of people with disabilities.
"Few can ever make a mark on the world that is that meaningful and that indelible.”
"Scotty is remembered with love and respect. She was a wonderful woman who has positively impacted on countless lives of developmentally disabled persons she assisted and Rehabilitation Counselors she educated. I am grateful to both Scotty and Julian for their mentorship, ethics/values, and most of all friendship."
"Scotty was quite a lady, always calm and comforting. She made everyone around her feel important and welcomed."
David Schwartz, Sausalito, California
"Scotty always believed in the good of people and was a hard working person. Her work in the area of rehab will live on forever."
Marian Bell-Knauls, Cincinnati, Ohio
"Scottie and Julian truly left their mark on the field of Psychiatric Rehabilitation".
"Very sorry to hear about Dr. Scott’s passing. My prayers are with her and her family".
Dan Klare, IKRON Board of Trustees Member
"Sorry we lost Dr. Scott. I didn't know her well but did have the pleasure of meeting her. What good work she did for IKRON and the community, in a good spirit and kind heart. "
Carol Dedischew, Former IKRON Board of Trustees Member
"I remember seeing her this year at your annual meeting. What a nice memory for you. She was truly a leader and will be missed. Diana
"Scottie and Julian truely left their mark on the field of Psychiatric Rehabilitation. FYI, I forwarded it on to Tony Zipple who began his MH career at UC Rehab (and working with me at the MHB) under Scottie and Julian, went on to Boston College where he got his doctorate and where he worked with Bill Anthony and the BC group, eventually went on to become CEO of Thresholds in Chicago. Just one on many trained by Scottie and Julian who have had a tremendous impact on many, many individuals with a mental illness."
"That is sad news about Dr.Scott."
"I am sorry to hear of your loss. Back in the early 90s when Consumer Network was forming (back then Advocacy Coalition), Dr. Scotty encouraged representation from consumers at Mighty Vine (which I believe was IKRON Wellness). She offered a unique perspective and sage advice to a fledgling endeavor. I will always remember her fondly."
"Sorry to hear about Dr. Scotty. I studied under her and Dr. Julian at U.C."
"I am so sorry to hear that. She was a great advocate and I am sure that IKRON will miss her always."
"Sorry to hear of the loss of such a pioneer in the Rehab Counseling profession. I will surely pass the information on to our alum."
Dr. Rhonda L. Norman
"I am really sorry to hear about Dr. Scott. I looked up to her and respected her."
Beverly Slye, Former IKRON Staff

Nancy Korte, Former IKRON Staff
"Thanks for alerting me to Dr Scotty's memorial. So sorry to hear of her passing. She was truly a pioneer in her field in Cincinnati, and a very caring person".
Mark Napier, former IKRON Board of Trustees President
"I am sorry to hear this news. I met Dr. Scott once or twice and was so impressed by her work. We are keeping her and IKRON in our prayers and best wishes".
Megan Clark, Former IKRON Board of Trustees President
" Wow. I was just thinking about Dr. Scott this weekend for the first time in a long time - I'd thought about sending her a card or trying to see her before Christmas."
"I have no doubt that you'll miss her, although I can't walk into IKRON without seeing her - I'm sure you feel her presence there every day".
Love from Joe and all the Koizes
"So sorry to know you are gone Dr. Scott – I will surely miss you. You have been my mentor and friend. I treasure the times we spent together – from working on projects and grants for IKRON or just having breakfast together and talking. I love you dr. Scott!"
