"Betty Ruth Scurlock, daughter of the late Lum Jefferson and Jewell Marie Meeks, was born on July 15, 1944 and was raised in Reeds Springs, MO. She departed this life at the age of 79 on January 28, 2024 at Mercy Hospital in Springfield, MO. She married Benny Dame on August 16, 1962, and they had two sons and a daughter. She later married James Scurlock on October 20, 1972, merging his six children from a previous marriage with her two children and completing their family with their youngest daughter, Erin. Betty was a faithful member of Cedar Ridge Freewill Baptist Church for over 40 years. She served as song leader for many of those years and enjoyed spending time with the friends she made there. She was a lifelong hard worker whether she was working on the farm, at the spring factory, or Copeland. She found the most joy in tending to her garden, finding new recipes, and spending time with family. Betty was preceded in death by Benny and James, her son Jeffrey Dame, her parents, an infant sister, infant twin brothers, sisters Bonnie Tilden, Nora Bailes, and Iva Nell Davis, and brother William “Wig” Meeks. Betty is survived by her children: Scott Dame, Shellia Palmer, Erin Dickinson, Pamela McGraw, Patricia Pierce, Larry Scurlock, Jennifer Wilson, John Timothy Scurlock, and Michael Scurlock; sister Audrey Hedrick, brothers Leon Meeks and JD Meeks.

Betty will be remembered for her kind, faithful, and loving spirit. She is already missed by those who love her. Funeral services are scheduled for 10 a.m. on Thursday, February 1, 2024, at Cedar Ridge Freewill Baptist Church in Long Lane, Missouri.

Springfield, MO

Marcene “Memmaw” Marie Frakes-Dodd, peacefully followed her husband to the other side on Thursday, February 15, 2024, at exactly 7:00 PM. After her husband Ralph Dodd passed away on February 9, she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and joined him 6 days later. They had been married for 81 years and she wanted nothing more than to join him again. In her words, “It has always been Ralph and Marcene and I do not want to be just Marcene.” Marcene was born in Steele, MO to William Thomas Frakes who was considered a pioneer resident of the community, and Ada Belle Adams-Frakes. She was raised on the farm and often helped pick cotton in the fields. She learned to drive at a very young age to assist with driving the hands to and from work. She was proud to be a homemaker and raise her four children. Memmaw was the text-book definition of a Grandma. There was always a pie, or cake, and she made the best chicken and dumplings to exist. When visiting, there was often an aroma of vinegar in the air as she canned all of their own cucumbers for pickles. She was also known to make her grandkids dresses and Halloween costumes as she was an excellent seamstress. Marcene was a lifelong member of the church of Christ being a member of the church in all places they lived including Steele, MO, Maryland Heights, MO, Ft. Myers, FL, West Plains, MO, Branson, MO (Hollister church), West End in St. Charles, MO, Protem, MO and now Sunset in Springfield, MO. Marcene is survived by her Grandchildren, Ashley, Jordan (Hope), Jeannie, Tom (Trish), Mark, Lisa (Kevin), Ben, Jeff (Marissa), Katie, Bradley, and Brian; her many Great Grandchildren, Marcy, James, Finley, Kristin, Anna, Mark, Gabby, Garrett, Genna, Violet, Mia, Emily, Mike, Ethan, and Sydney; and Great Great Grandchildren, Giana Joy, Blake, Abigail Grace, Jordan and Rylan. She is also survived by her niece, Darla (Dwayne) and her nephew, Chuck (Dana) amongst a great many other family and friends. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Ralph Jackson Dodd just 6 days prior. She was tragically preceded in death by her children, Marcy Marie Dodd-Miller, Sharon Kay Dodd-Farley, Ralph Jackson Dodd ll, and Timothy Wayne Dodd. Also, her parents, and her sisters, Wanda, Gertie, and Peggy, and her brothers Odell, and Boone.
