Sally McGuire Scruggs 1966 – 2019

Sally McGuire Scruggs, 52, of Galveston, Texas passed away on Friday, March 15, 2019 surrounded by her family. Sally was born on August 3, 1966, in Greensboro, North Carolina to Joseph and Patricia (Galloway) Mc-Guire. Sally’s calling in life was the healthcare industry. She received her bachelor’s from UT Dallas and graduated from Navarro College Nursing School in 1988, practicing as an RN, hospital administrator, and with her husband in their clinic. She married Dr. Charles K. Scruggs in 2009 on the island of Cyprus, and they made their home in Galveston, Texas, where they were blessed with their youngest child, Charli P. Scruggs. Their similar sense of humor, love for family, and strong personalities made them a perfect match. Sally often mentioned she knew she had found her soulmate. Sally’s contagious smile and vibrant personality would light up any room. She always put her children first, and was a loving Mimi to her grandchildren. She enjoyed traveling, spending time with her family, and cooking. Sally was funny, caring, and a voracious reader, who was knowledgeable on a variety of subjects. She would give the shirt off her back to help. She was unique in the way she cherished her friendships, especially with her sister Ruth. The bond between them was special, and they loved one another unconditionally. Ruth will miss her daily conversations with her sister. Her beautiful spirit will forever live on in the lives of her loving husband, Dr. Charles K. Scruggs; son, Kevin Bertinetti; daughters, Lawren Bertinetti, Charli P. Scruggs, Annie Scruggs and Caroline Scruggs; brothers, Joe McGuire (Cheri); Bill McGuire (Johna); sister, Ruth Spaniel (Gregory); brother in law, Marvin Brown; grandchildren, Chloe Cox and Halli Bertinetti; mother in law, Deweese Scruggs; brothers in law, Jerry Scruggs (Patty), Jimmy Scruggs (Lu); sister in law, Carole Nafziger (Lowell); nephews, Andrew Spaniel, Matt McGuire, Jake McGuire, Ryan McGuire, Nathan and Phillip Scruggs; nieces, Hannah Zhanel (Seth), Brittany Brown, Elizabeth Brown, and Carmen Scruggs: greatnephews; Joseph and Jazper Brown. Sally will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Sally was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Patricia McGuire, sister, Ginger Mc-Guire Brown and nephew, Brian David Brown. A Celebration of Sally’s Life will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at J. E. Keever Mortuary Chapel. Afterwards, please join the family for a luncheon, honoring Sally, at 12:00 p.m. at The First Methodist Church 300 N. Sherman Street, Ennis.
