Phyllis was born Dec. 12, 1942, in Monahans and married Delbert Scroggins Aug. 20, 1961, in Coahoma. Her family owned the Lil’ Sooper grocery store in Coahoma, and she worked there starting in 1970. She finally retired in 2007, having also worked at the Walls Clothing Factory. Phyllis was known for her can-do attitude. She would accomplish anything she put her mind to, like trying to grow something in the garden or restore an old pickup.
Phyllis was a strong Christian woman who was very involved in teaching little children about the Lord. She took this very serious. Through many trials in her life, she always found joy and carried on. She never said a negative word about anyone, and she loved her family and friends endlessly. She felt incredibly blessed.
Phyllis is survived by her husband, Delbert Scroggins of Big Spring; sons Dennis Scroggins and wife, Stephanie, and Matt Scroggins and wife, Leslie, all of Big Spring; daughter Wanda Levy and husband, Kenneth, of Midland; eight grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and sister Wanda Davis of Aurora, Colo.
Phyllis was preceded in death by her parents, Luther “Bud” Anderson and Vera Dell Anderson; brothers Wendell Joe Anderson, Lonnie Anderson and James “Buddy” Anderson; sister Linda Dell Anderson; and grandson Rauli Tabor Wise.
