I think THIS goes very much AWAY from Scrooge's character. He'd want his personal secretary to be someone who could do her work efficiently, and concentrate on it fully. Any woman he'd have "on the side" (of his mania for building wealth), would better serve him by being AWAY from his working environment. She wouldn't "stay with him" long, if she were subject to his constantly berating her for being less efficient than he'd like (believing her to be keeping him from making more money than he is, due to her inefficiencies (as he berated Donald, and even Clerkly, and the other office workers). If he would need loving attention from a woman, he'd better have not berated her constantly, and often within earshot of fellow workers.
Oh, I didn't mean a romantic relationship, necessarily; not sure if you're familiar with the backstory of Mrs. Beakley and Scrooge on DuckTales '17, but it's portrayed as a platonic, professional shared past.
I would guess she'd have been in her late 20s when starting with Scrooge, when he was in his early 50s, or so. If Scrooge was born in 1873, he was 52 in 1925. So, Miss Quackfaster would have been in her late 30s in 1947, when Donald first got re-acquainted with Uncle Scrooge. And she'd have been no older than her early 40s, while the majority of the stories we've seen in the comic books took place, according to Rosa's and other fans' best guess timelines.
But this is all speculative; there's nothing in the comics that suggests that she's three decades younger than Scrooge. The impression that I always got from Rosa's Life of Scrooge (and the Barks comics for that matter), is that she's roughly the same age or perhaps a few years younger, but certainly of the same generation.
