Lou Ellen Scroggins was born on July 17th, 1924 in Topeka KS. She was
the second child born to Edward and Genevieve Feeley. She had an older
brother, Earl. Her parents were the proprietors of a Hotel in Topeka.
She grew up living in the Hotel, making friends with the guests. She
learned kindness to strangers at an early age which is a trait she
exhibited her entire life and one she passed on to her children. While a
young girl she developed a love of Elephants and began collecting them
around the age of nine. She has spent her entire life building a vast
collection. In 1943 as the world was being engulfed by war, like many
young women she found herself falling in love with a man in uniform. She
married Floyd Woods and was blessed with her first two children. This
marriage, again, like many others of that time, didn’t last and ended in
divorce. In 1949 she met and married Howard Kenneth Barnes. Marrying
into the Barnes family fulfilled a lifelong dream of being part of a
large family. She was embraced and quickly became one of them. Over the
course of the years, as the five children came long there were countless
family dinners and gatherings where the adults visited on the porch and
the children played outside. There were camping trips and church
fellowships. The family lived in and around the Kansas City area,
settling in Independence in 1965. Kenneth passed away in 1970. While
raising her children Lou Ellen worked at several jobs. She enjoyed
hospital work and was a switchboard operator at Baptist Memorial
Hospital and the Medical Center of Independence. She later worked in a
doctor’s office and at Commerce Bank. One of her greatest pleasures was
spending time with her children. She enjoyed traveling to Branson with
them, and the simple times of when they were all together. Holidays were
important to her, a time she enjoyed being with all of her children.
Lou Ellen always wished she’d had a sister; although not a blood
relative she developed a sister relationship with Vinnie from Australia.
She met Vinnie through a pen pal and this friendship lasted for more
than 30 years. Lou Ellen was fortunate to have made several trips to
Australia to spend time with Vinnie and her family. After being a widow
for 18 years, she married Glen Scroggins. They had a happy, albeit
short, marriage which tragically ended with Glen’s passing away. During
their short marriage she had much happiness. They traveled to places
such as Yellowstone, Colorado, Australia, and Branson. Lou Ellen was
preceded in death by her parents, brother, two husbands, three infant
grandchildren Carrie Nunamaker, Matthew West and Callie Dunham, three
grandsons, Jeffrey Dunham, Brett Rodman and Kevin West. She is survived
by her children Judy Bland [21474:L, fb], Richard Woods [21473:L, fb], Patty Colvin [21478:L, fb] (Jeff [, fb]), Debbie
Henderson [21482:L, fb] (Ray [21483:L]), Sharon Stiles [21484:L, fb], (Adam [ , fb]), Jenny Overman [21486:L] (Rodney) and Laurie
Snyder [21479:L, fb] (Richard [21480:L]), 18 grandchildren, 27 great grandchildren, and 14
great great grandchildren. There are no words to express how much she
will be missed by her family. Fly high mom, we love you always. Online
