Tambrey Lynn Scruggs, 54 and life-long resident of Wiggins, passed away Sunday morning at her home. She was born January 27, 1965, one of four and the only daughter to Jessie H. & Jeanette A. (Strickland) Harrison. Tambrey grew up and spent her life in Wiggins, a true country-girl tomboy from the very beginning. As a young girl, she took piano lessons and was a member of the Stone High Pride marching band. Tambrey was a member of the SHS Class of 1983, and went on to MGCCC for two years. After graduating from Perk, she spent a semester at USM. Tambrey was a member at Vardaman Street Baptist Church, where she made a profession of her faith in Christ as her Lord and Savior and was baptized. Early in her career, she worked at Courtesy Ford in Hattiesburg for a number of years, and at Foliage Designs in Wiggins. Later she transitioned to the casino industry on the coast as a dealer. Tambrey spent many years working at the COPA, Boomtown, and finally the Golden Nugget. She was a loving mother who was very proud of her sons, caring for them and making sure they had whatever they needed. Tambrey was socially engaged, keeping up with many of her friends from school and work through the years. She enjoyed playing games on her phone, but her true passion was her grandson, Jace, who she adored. A loving, outgoing mother, sister, and true friend to so many, she will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by all whose life she touched. She was preceded by her parents, Jesse & Jeanette Harrison; and grandparents Walter & Hilda Harrison and Amos & Effie Strickland. Left to cherish her memories are her two sons, Jesse and Zachary Scruggs, both of Wiggins, and their father, Jason Neal Scruggs of Biloxi; her grandson, Jace Quave; her brothers, Rhett, Scott, and Chett Harrison, along with numerous extended family and friends. The family has set a memorial service for Tambrey for 2:00 PM Wednesday afternoon, July 10th, at Floral Hills Memorial Gardens in Gulfport, with all who knew her encouraged to attend. Trinity Funeral Services is honored to serve the (Harrison) Scruggs family in their time of need, and asks that everyone keep them in their thoughts and prayers over the coming days.
