Among her favorite activities were bowling, camping and playing games. She had a great sense of humor and loved engaging in little jokes with family and friends. Her generous nature and loving ways were always apparent to everyone who knew her. In recent years she also took great joy in caring for her beloved cats.
She is survived by her sons, Roger Scaggs and Charlie Scaggs; her sister, Velma Boyher of Fenton, MO; as well as numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
