Anna ‘Ann’ Louise Scruggs had accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior early on in her life and shared the love of Christ with all those she met, and she went home to glory on March 3, 2019.
She was born March 26, 1929, in Powell to Clair and Libby Moore.
She married Samuel S. Scruggs of Jacksonville, Texas, in September 1946 in Denver, Colorado, and lived a short time in Fairplay, Colorado, before moving back to Powell. There she and Samuel began their family, and she worked as a CNA at the Powell Hospital for a few years and as a homemaker.
Ann loved horses, reading, baking and sewing. After their children were grown, Sam and Ann lived short periods in North Platte, Nebraska, Iran, Texas, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and McFadden, Wyoming, while Sam worked for Marathon Oil Company, before returning to the Cody/Powell area.
For the last 13 years, Ann has lived in Greeley, Colorado, after the death of Sam.
Ann is survived by her four children Doryea (Fred) Gibbs of Eaton, Colorado, Sam (Rebecca) Scruggs of Hubbard, Oregon, Marsha Scruggs of Greeley, Colorado, and Mark (Joyce) Scruggs of Powell. She will be missed by her six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren — Anissa (Matt) Bree, Derek (Joan) Jackson, Amaris (Josh) Coots, Matthew (Katrina) Scruggs, Leslie Scruggs, Lori (Noe) Zuniga, Carley (Ray) Varo, Skylah Bree, Gabriel Bree, Lexa Jackson, Tennile Scruggs, Jonathon Scruggs, Sammy Scruggs, Victoria Zuniga, Jonah Zuniga, Josiah Zuniga and Elijah Zuniga.
She was preceded in death by her husband Samuel, a very special grandson Tyler Lane Scruggs, her eight siblings and parents.
A small graveside service will be held Saturday, March 9, led by Pastor Kent Dempsey of Cody Bible Church and music by Anissa Bree.
