Susan Gail Smith Scruggs got her wings and went to walk with the angels Friday, January 26, 2024, after multiple battles with Cancer.  She was 66 years old.


It would be wrong to say Susan lost her battle because she never stopped fighting.  When anyone else would have broken, Susan stayed strong.


Susan was born February 6, 1957, in Alleghany County, a daughter of the late Eugene Harvey and Violet Humphries Smith.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a sister Ruby Jane Jones; five brothers; Edward Wayne Smith, Russell Eugene Smith, Robert Lee Smith, Charles Harvey Smith, and Donald Ray Persinger.


Susan was the Assistant Manager of the Kroger Deli in Clifton Forge until she retired.  She was baptized and attended Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church. Susans greatest love was her family.

Susan is survived by two children which she was so proud of: a daughter Tessia Kellison Harris and husband, Jason Harris of Kingsport, TN and a son, John Scruggs Jr. of Clifton Forge, VA.  She helped raise four grandchildren; Paris Caudill III of Ohio, Johnathan Scruggs, Conner Scruggs and Bentley Scruggs of Clifton Forge and four other special people; Michelle Hawse, Laurie May, Hattie Beard and Kris Anderson.  Susan had many friends however, John Scruggs Sr., Teri Sowards, Leslie Smith and Lawrence Ruff were special to her and she had known them for many years.  She is also survived by a sister, Nancy Coleman of Covington and a brother, Jerry Smith of Clifton Forge and a number of nieces and nephews.


The family invites you to join them for a family gathering at Arritt Funeral Home on Saturday, February 10, 2024, at 12:00 P.M. 1:00 PM.  Susan had requested that everyone wear casual attire for the service.


Arritt Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

The boys begged for his attention. One bought a brand new Harley just to try and get Bob to ride with him and never did. He ran around with others. There was no Christian anything, wasn't allowed to talk about Jesus. The boys are in and out of prison, one is all over the internet and in prison for destroying property and beating on women. He partied his whole life putting himself first breaking his kids and hearts through it all. The parents partied and used the kids as bait between the other kids family,it's a mess that left everyone in the family a miserable mess. Everyone knows who he really is, and his wife. She would enable her sons to beat on women and help them do it while the women begged her for help she and Bob would just laugh at them and do nothing to.the boys. There was no relationship between the kids and Bob, the kids tried so hard they went mental, emotional, anger/rage problems. This is a very rough bunch yet still prayers for their loss and that they truly find Christ sincerely.
