Kristy Ann Tolleth Scruggs

Kristy was a popular, gregarious cheerleader in high school, who became a young mother to her daughter Cassandra at 19. Then she found a drug life style that took her away from us for 20 years. In 2010 she suffered an aneurysm and by God’s grace and mercy she was healed from that long time addiction and she never touched any drug again.

While she fought through the physical complications caused by her lifestyle in the past, she found a passion to help homeless and also to talk to young people about drug abuse. Our mom, Mary Ann, was inspired by Kristy’s sincere desire so the two of them began gathering items for homeless people, for blessing bags and started the charity Kristy’s Legacy, a foundation Kristy hoped would do good after she was gone. https://www.facebook.com/KristysLegacy/?fref=ts

In August 2012, she went in to hospital for a small scheduled surgery. It didn’t turn out well as expected. She nearly lost her life right after the surgery. Yet she was determined to live through so she could share her story with others. Many of her friends and her church family prayed for her healing. After 3 weeks she was released from the hospital to go home.

She was able to spend 3 days with family and her kitty that she loved before God called her Home on September 7th, 2012. She was survived by her daughter Cassandra Grimmet, siblings Kathy Tolleth McQueen, Jon Tolleth, and Sandra Laurence. Also her parents Fred Tolleth, and Maryann and Jerry Haynes.

Alan Tolleth

Married to Joan L Tolleth, Alan died of Lung Cancer which metastasized to his brain. He had a degree in Biochemistry and once told me a story about helping put man on the moon by inventing something that worked within the filtration system. Apparently he got a plaque from NASA for it. I am told it hung at the Smithsonian, someday I’d like to apply to see it and check out the story.. He quit working as a chemist because he said the labs were too dangerous, people kept getting blown up. Afterwards he started to raise cattle in Oregon. We had a big Fourth of July family reunions there every year. He and my father Fred were very close, but I never met my Uncle Hale because of a falling out between the brothers. He and Joan had four sons; Jon, David, Grant and Matthew who survived him.
