Phyllis was born Dec. 12, 1942, in Monahans, Texas, and married Delbert Scroggins Aug. 20, 1961, in Coahoma, Texas. 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. Anything she put her mind to, she would accomplish, like trying to grow something in the garden or restore an old pickup.
Phyllis was a very 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 the joy and carried on. Never a negative word to be said of anyone, she loved her family and friends endlessly and was incredibly blessed.
She is survived by her husband, Delbert Scroggins of Big Spring; two sons, Dennis Scroggins and wife, Stephanie, and Matt Scroggins and wife, Leslie, all of Big Spring; one daughter, Wanda Levy and husband, Kenneth of Midland; eight grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and one sister, Wanda Davis of Aurora, Colo.
Phyllis was preceded in death by her parents, Luther "Bud" Anderson and Vera Dell Anderson; three brothers, Wendell Joe Anderson, Lonnie Anderson and James "Buddy" Anderson; one sister, Linda Dell Anderson; and one grandson, Rauli Tabor Wise.
