Gloria Scroggins
October 25, 1937 - December 11, 2015

Gloria Baker Scroggins [37255], of Atlanta, died in the early hours of Friday, December 11, at Hospice Atlanta. She was 78. The cause of death was heart failure. Her beloved husband, the lawyer Frank William Scroggins [31794], died in 2010.

Gloria's beauty, vivacity and delight in travel, friends, Scrabble and bridge were legendary. She loved restaurants, disliked cooking, and studied German for pleasure with her husband.

She was born and raised in the small town of Bethune, South Carolina, the eldest child of James Baker and Vera Johnson Baker, and when her father, a businessman and cotton broker, died young, she became a second mother to her four brothers, Jimmy, Robert, Tommy and Frank. She later earned her bachelor's degree in business administration at the University of South Carolina. As a young woman she moved to Atlanta, where she met her future husband, who had been raised in Alabama and had attended Emory Law School. He became a well-known bankruptcy lawyer in the area while Gloria both raised a family and launched a successful personnel agency, Scroggins Personnel.

Two children survive her: Deborah Scroggins [31793] of Arlington, Va., and Barnstable, Mass., and Frank William Scroggins, Jr. [37256] of West Palm Beach, Fla. Gloria also had three grandchildren, Anna Barrington Campbell, Elizabeth Baker Campbell, and Frank William Scroggins III. Two of her brothers survive her, Dr. Robert Baker and Tommy Baker.

Gloria's funeral will be held at H. M. Patterson & Son Funeral Home at 1020 Spring Street, NW, next Saturday, Dec. 19. Visitation will begin at 12 noon followed by a service in the chapel at 1 p.m. The burial at Oakland Cemetery, beside her husband, will be private.
