Obituary - Joy E. Scaggs

Joy Elizabeth Scaggs was born on December 30, 1964, at Sam Houston Hospital in San Antonio, Texas, to Orville Wayne Scaggs and Iretta Mae Scaggs. Joy grew up in Texas, Georgia, Missouri and Colorado while her father served in the United States Army. Joy graduated from high school in 1982 from Central High School in Aurora, Colo.
Joy was, as her given name, a joy to be around. She had the sweetest smile and kindest, gentlest heart. Joy loved to watch NASCAR racing like her father and was the biggest fan of Jeff Gordon. She loved gospel music and was especially fond of the Bill Gaither Trio. She loved collecting porcelain dolls and had an enormous love for horses. Joy was a wonderful person who always took the feelings of others into consideration before her own. When she was able she would volunteer for whatever she could to help those near her. She was adored by everyone she came into contact with, as she radiated love and kindness. Joy would tell you that her mother was her best friend. Joy loved going to church and loved the Lord with all her heart.
She is survived by her father, Orville Wayne (Esther) Scaggs of Tucson, Ariz.; her mother Iretta Mae (Gordon) Streitenberger of Licking, Mo.; her brother John Wayne (Laurie) Scaggs of Grand Prairie, Texas; her sister Rhonda Lynn (Blas) Ortiz of Aurora, Colo; her half brother Waylon Lee Scaggs of Georgia, nephew Michael Scaggs and niece Brandi Moses of Dallas, Texas; niece Jennifer Ortiz and nephews Kaiden and Dominic of Aurora, Colo., and many other family and close friends. Joy will be greatly missed by all her family and friends.
She is preceded in death by her brother, Randall Lee Scaggs.
Joy will be laid to rest at Old Success Cemetery, Success, Mo., near her Grandma Ruby Dubin and Grandpa Glenn Campbell.
A poem to our sister (author unknown), SISTER Until we meet again… A light from my life has gone, a voice I loved is still, a place is vacant within my heart, which can never be filled. A bouquet of beautiful memories, sprayed with a million tears, I wish God had spared you if just for a few more years. I hold you close within my heart, and there you will remain, to walk with me through out my life, until we meet again. So rest in peace dear loved one, and thanks for all you’ve done. I pray that God has given you the crown you’ve truly won. Your vacant place no one can fill, I miss you now and always will.
