Married George Howard Beck in March 1942. They were the
parents of Cynthia Ann and George Jr.

On August 5, 1971, she married Charles H. Scott at Kiowa, Barber Co, Kansas.
Guy and Bertha Winn and their three oldest children, Margaret (Kenworthy), George and Dorothy (Gilleland), moved by mules and wagon from Wellington, Kansas, to Hardtner in 1911. There Guy was employed for $46.00 a month plus a cow to milk. For extra money he hauled groceries for the Hardtner Supply from Kiowa with a mule team and a lumber wagon. 1912 was an exciting year for the Winns. Not only did Guy start farming for himself, but on March 28, 1912, they were blessed with another son, Jim. Guy bought another team of mules and a walking plow and leased 300 acres of unbroken sod from Jake Achenbach. Times were tough with little children and just getting started farming, so Bertha helped by playing the piano for the silent movies in Hardtner and by playing for dances with the help of her son, George, on the fiddle. The Winns were a community-oriented family. Guy dug the basement of the St. John's Evangelical Church with his mules and fresno. This took, a lot of time, and he donated his work. Bertha belonged to the Women's Union and the Rebacca Lodge. Guy and Bertha lived onthe ground they leased from Jake Achenbach for 18 years, and 4 more children were born there: Richard, Nellie (Dawson), John, Ada Belle (Scott). In 1925 Guy took the job of building the grade for the MKT railroad from Turpin to Hooker, Oklahoma. He bossed a crew of twenty men including his son, George, and his son-in-law, Clifford Kenworthy, and worked 80 head of mules on plows and fresnos. His daughters, Margaret (Kenworthy) and Dorothy (Gilleland), did the cooking for the men. When the grade for the railroad was finished, Guy returned to farming in Hardtner. Three years in a row, tornadoes ripped through Hardtner and their farm, destroying buildings, machinery, and wheat crops. The family having taken as much as they could stand, then moved to Beaver County, Oklahoma, where once again Guy started anew with farming. Guy passed away in Oklahoma in 1956. His son Richard preceded him in death. After Guy's death, Bertha returned to Hardtner to be near her son, George. Later her daughter Ada Belle (Scott) moved to Hardtner to be near her. Mrs. Winn still resides in Hardtner at the age of 97.
