Helen Sherlin


Helen Christine Scoggins Sherlin, 82, went home to be with her Lord, with her family by her side, on Tuesday, June 18, 2019.

She was born April 17, 1937, to the late Richard and Maebelle Scoggins. She was also preceded in death by her husband, the love of her life, Jim Sherlin; and her brother, Gene Scoggins.

Christine was an avid reader and loved country music. Yellow roses were her favorite flower. Even though Christine had struggles in her life, she never lost her smile or her sense of humor, even though she was sick and not long for this world. Today, heaven is a better place with Christine and her smile being there.

She was a great daughter, sister, mother and a caregiver to her family. She help raise and take care of her younger siblings. She was a caregiver to her mother and grandmother, 'til their last days. She will be forever missed and loved by her family, until we all meet again in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

She is survived by her daughters: Stacy Scoggins and Lori Beaver, and her husband, Keith; two grandsons: Steven Whitt Cross, and Justin T. Scoggins; granddaughter, Katlyn Beavers; two great-granddaughters: Alyissa Scoggins and Zoey Cross; three great-grandsons: Jordon Scoggins, Beckett Cross and Levi Cross; her sisters: Dorothy Quinn, Joyce Davis, Betty Scoggins, Nancy Sykes, Cookie Hullender and Wanda Marks; her brothers: Charlie Scoggins, Carl Scoggins, and Kenneth Scoggins; and her special lifelong friend, Mable Lindsey.

A Remembrance of Life service will be held Saturday, June 22, 2019, at 1 p.m. at Jim Rush Funeral and Cremation Services, Wildwood Avenue Chapel.

The interment will follow at Lee Cemetery in McDonald, with family and friends servings as casket bearers.
