  1. To all of the Scruton Family, my deepest sympathy. My prayers are with all of you. Sincerely, Pat Pestle

  2. Grandma, you were the Grandmother of all Grandmothers! With all the kids that were in and out of you house each day, you never got mad when there was mud on the floor or wet mittens and boots hanging around. You were always there with cookies and milk, or apple cider and donughts. If anybody wanted to stay the night, you always made room for them. You could fit 20 people around your table if you had too – and have enough spaghetti to go around! We all had great memories thanks to you and Grandpa. You will be truly missed!!!

    We all love you!

  3. Grandma you will be missed by so many! Holly is right- You always had room for anyone and everyone and you didn’t have to be family to be welcomed and treated like you were one of us. Grandma had one of the biggest hearts I know, and because of that so many hearts are now saddened at her passing. I have so many wonderful memories of us all together that I hold on dearly to and I will always cherish.

    To my family-Stay strong and keep the Faith!
    I Love You and Miss You and I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers!

    “together again”<33

  5. Mom……

    I am lost without you.

    Your heart and home were open to all. Betty-Jo was known to say that Mom could take a loaf of bread and feed an army of people. And you did. I don’t know how but you always made room for anyone that wanted to spend the night and you fed all who entered the house. Your kindness will be remembered.

    You shared your home, table and yourself. A heart of gold that God created 87 years before, reached down to guide you home.
