Ida Scruggs, more affectionately known as Mamaw to so many, went home to heaven on Sunday, August 22, 2021, in Maryville, Tennessee at the home of her brother. She was 92 and her physical health had only recently been declining, yet her mind was still sharp as a tack. She was born on November 2nd, 1928, in Knoxville to James and Sarah McClanahan, who both preceded her, as well as her sister Louise, and brothers Sam, Kelsey, and Kenneth. She is survived by brothers Roland, and Tyson, and sisters Pat, Eula, and Eva. She is also survived by her daughter Carolyn Bobbitt (husband James Stone) in Alabama and son, Larry Scruggs, in North Carolina with grandchildren Lee Bobbitt (wife Brooke), Buffey Greene, and Sarah Irvin (husband Alex), as well as great grandchildren Madeline Ussery, Haley and Deacon Bobbitt, and Emory and Riley Irvin, special friend Rebecca. Ida was even able to meet her great great granddaughter, Charlotte Trowell, and capture a picture with five generations. Her legacy will definitely live on! Ida and her late husband, Henry Ford Scruggs were known for their service in youth group ministry and being active in their community through the Methodist church and square dancing club. She worked at Sam’s Club in the Demo Department for over 15 years chatting with every customer she could. She was known for her green beans, green thumb, and her love measured for others by a bushel and a peck. She certainly never met a stranger, yet she was feisty and strong-willed. Ida loved bird watching, people watching, and telling stories about her family. She loved old Gospel hymns, country music on her kitchen radio, and always had just a little something sweet prepared after a meal.
