(Updated 7 Jan 2016).

Jeanne Scroggins Guffy, 87, joined her beloved husband of 63 years in heaven on Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2016, in Southern Pines.

Sara Jeanne Scroggins was born August 21, 1928 in Louisville, Kentucky to Mary Emmaline Martin [2463:J], and Garnet Franklin Scroggins [2462:J]. Jeanne joined brothers William Gilbert [2456:J], Shirley Martin [2465:J], Charles Kenneth [2466:J], and was later joined by Garnet Franklin [2468:J].  A sister Mary Garnet [2464:J] predeceased Jeanne’s birth

Jeanne graduated from Atherton High School for Girls in Louisville. She married Robert Guffy [2475:J] on October 18, 1952 in Louisville.  They started their family with 2 daughters, Pam [2476:J] and Page [2477:J], whom they raised in Anchorage, Kentucky. There, Jeanne was active in the Junior Women’s Club of Louisville, as Girl Scout leader to Pam and Page, choir mother to the Children’s Choir of Anchorage Presbyterian Church, Mummers and Minstrels, and all of the girls’ activities at Anchorage School.

Later, living in numerous places through transfers with Bob in his career, Jeanne was involved in Christian Women’s Club and Bible Study Fellowship. Jeanne organized the Toys for Tots Christmas Toy Drive in Shelby, and was instrumental in establishing Community Bible Study in Pinehurst.

Jeanne was quick to make new friends, become involved in community activities and settle the family in their new homes. She and Bob would later travel extensively in his retirement.

Also known as “Mean Jeanne the Ball Machine,”, Jeanne enjoyed tennis and an equally good game of golf with two holes-in-one to her credit.

Jeanne’s unshakeable and unwavering faith provided her with a gentle strength coupled with optimism for whatever life presented. Her love for her Lord was evidenced in her every thought and deed. After so recently losing her dear and beloved husband on Nov. 29, 2015, Jeanne’s health declined quickly. She peacefully joined the love of her life 37 days later.

Jeanne is survived by daughters Pam [2476:J] and husband, Harvey [2491:J] Hill, of Southern Pines, and Page Woodward [2477:J], of Vero Beach, Fla.; granddaughter Molly Hill and husband, Brendon Garner, of Winston-Salem; great-granddaughter Grace Garner; grandsons Seth Woodward and wife, Elizabeth, of Wheaton, Ill., and Chas Woodward, of Chicago; granddaughter Emma Woodward, of Vero Beach, Fla.; brothers Ken [2466:J] and Frank [2468:J], and numerous nieces and nephews. Jeanne was predeceased by her husband, her parents, two brothers and sister.

The family would like to thank the staff at St. Joseph of the Pines and the FirstHealth Hospice House for the genuine dedication and compassion given to Jeanne during her time in their care. Jeanne was dearly loved by all who knew her and whose lives she touched.

A visitation will be held Saturday, Jan. 9, at 10 a.m. at Belle Meade, with a celebration of life following at 11 a.m. in the Belle Meade Chapel.

Memorial gifts may be donated to FirstHealth Hospice or Clara McLean House and sent to Foundation of First Health, 150 Applecross Road, Pinehurst NC 28374, or online at firsthealth.org.

Boles Funeral Home of Southern Pines is serving the family.
