Louise Scruggs, Obituary

The Nashville Tennessean obituary for Louise Scruggs is available online for anyone who would like to read it.

It relates the very basic details of her life, as you would expect in an immediate newspaper obituary, along with brief tributes from Dwight Yoakam, Ricky Skaggs and Jeff Hanna (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band). There is also a lovely quote from Mrs. Scruggs from an earlier interview where she describes seeing Earl perform for the first time at The Grand Ole Opry in 1946, and being more struck by the man himself than his banjo playing. They met that night, and were married two years later.

We’ll pass along other resources of this sort as we find them.
