    Mrs. Scarnegie was a beautiful woman who was kind and smiled to everyone she knew. When she was younger I would see her walking everywhere and she would stop and talk to me at the bus stop. Mrs. Scarnegie met me through her daughter, Lisa. R.I.P., so sorry for you and your families loss. Love, Maureen and Corey Erekson
