Katherine J. “Kathy” Scroggins



Katherine J. “Kathy” Scroggins, 55, of Commiskey, passed away Saturday, June 20, 2015, at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.

Born July 6, 1959, in Seymour, she was the daughter of Robert and Irene Royalty Engle, who survive. On Sept. 3, 1982, at First Marion Baptist Church, she married Richard “Dick” Scroggins, who survives.

Kathy received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Indiana University and had worked at Schneck Medical Center and KDH Home Health. After working for others, she and her family wanted to reach out to others and help those in need of care at home. So they started their own ministry, Scroggins Nursing and Home Health Services.

Kathy was a very caring, loving person who always put others first. She would be the one who would see a need and reach out to others without being recognized for her generosity.

She will be remembered as a loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, sister-in-law and friend to so many. She loved her dad and mom and had unconditional love for all. She was one that always had an extended hand for others, as for her last day, she had volunteered to transport her great-nephew and great-niece to see her niece, Trista, in the hospital when they were involved in an automobile accident on Interstate 65. She loved her church and her church family.

Besides her parents and husband, survivors include her children, Richanda (Craig) Hahn, Blake Scroggins, Stacie (Gary) Mason, Bryannah Reynolds and Brian Scroggins; grandchildren, Jonathon Kelly, Reece Hahn, Bryce Scroggins, Arianna Scroggins, Molly Mason, Autumn Mason and Cheyenne Mason; brother, Bobby (Missy) Engle; a very special friend, Susan East; and several nieces, nephews, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.

She was preceded in death by a son, Clint Scroggins; sister-in-law, Dora Scroggins; great-nephew, Keghan McCrory-Engle; and great-niece, Addyson Engle.

The funeral service will be at 1 p.m. Saturday at First Marion Baptist Church, with the Rev. Jeff Hood officiating. Burial will follow Saturday at the church cemetery.

Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday at Voss Chapel in Seymour and from 11 a.m. until time of service Saturday at the church.

Memorials may be made to the athletic department of Jennings County High School.
