"A Time To Live"
Sister Jeffery Alton Scroggins Wright Walker was the second daughter born to the late John Ellis Scroggins, Sr. and Lula Mae Tisdale Joiner of Elgin, Texas. She was born on December 26, 1929 and was named after her mother's brother Jefferson Tisdale.
Jeffery accepted Christ at a very early age and was baptized at Mt. Moriah Baptist Church in Elgin, Texas. She later moved to Austin, Texas and united with Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church under the pastorate of the late Reverend S. L. Davis. She was a strong woman of great faith who continued to attend worship services at Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Reverend L. K. Jones until her health failed. As a servant of God in the house of the Lord, she served and sang in the church choir for many years.
Jeffery attended and graduated from Elgin "Eagles" Public High School in 1949.
She began her working career and retirement at the University of Texas – Austin in food services and custodial services for 39½ years. Jeffery was a woman who had a passion as a "Fashionista" who loved dressing up when the occasion would arise. She was the epitome of feminity; wearing her jewelry, colorful nail polish and the most stylish attire. This legacy is continued to her daughters, nieces and throughout her family.
Jeffery was a woman with many interest and hobbies. She enjoyed reading her bible, being a member of the Birthday Club, decorating, shopping, singing, playing dominoes, eating catfish cooked by Pastor L. K. Jones, eating out at various restaurants, traveling and visiting her daughter in San Antonio, Texas. Her favorite color was purple a sign of royalty.
A virtuous Woman: Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future. She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. . .charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her the product of her hands, and let works praise her in the gates." Proverbs 31:24-26, 30-31
