Virigina Josephine Scroggins Blount

VIRGINIA JOSEPHINE SCROGGINS BLOUNT, age 88 of Athens, Tenn. passed away Sunday, Sept. 26, 2021, in NHC of Athens. She was a native , lifelong resident of Meigs and McMinn County, a daughter of the late Roy E. and Neva Scroggins preceded in death by her husband: Robert H. Blount on August 18, 2011 and Brother: Don Scroggins. Her life was being the best Wife, Mother and Grandmother she could be. Our Mom was our heart. She taught us about love, understanding and forgiveness. Her sense of humor and laughter was contagious. We sure are going to miss her. She put up the good fight till the end and we would like to thank Athens Place and NHC for their great care. We think about how great it is that she is having the greatest reunion with Dad, all our family and how great can it be to finally see her Mother who passed when she was only four years old. The Lord says we should rejoice in his name in this time and we certainly will and be thankful for all the years we had her with us! See you all again someday Mama! She was a member of Antioch Baptist Church.
