Nora Faye was born in High, Texas (a community of less than 100 people) on Sunday, August 13,
1933 to Wm. “Bill” Burrow and Edna Mae Lanham Burrow.
They preceded her in death as did her only sibling, a sister, Billie Jean Cherry, and Billie’s daughter
Brenda as well as Billie’s husband, Tom “Tinker” Cherry. She is survived by Brenda’s daughter.
Sherry, and her family and Brenda’s son, Clint, and his family as well as by Billie’s son, Mike
Cherry, and his family.
Nora Faye’s husband, Harry Glenn Scoggins, (born in Pecan Gap, Texas) passed away on May 3,
They were married for 67 years and lived in Mesquite, Texas for 26 years before retiring to Detroit, Texas in 1992.
Nora was a young bride while Harry served in the Army at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas, at an Army
facility in Hansford, Texas and at United States Army Air Corps Geiger Field in Spokane, Washington.
Thereafter, she was busy raising their 3 sons while Harry was driving over 3 million miles as a 42-
year Sears Line Haul employee dispatched out of Dallas.
Nora Faye retired from the Carl’s Sewing Center at the Casa View Shopping Center location in Dallas. She was the office manager, kept the books and demonstrated the sewing machines. She also gave lessons to the purchasers of sewing machines that were a step up, in features and complexity, from the ubiquitous Singer Sewing Machines.
Nora Faye and Harry were among the founding members of St. Stephen United Methodist Church in Mesquite from the time when the fledgling church met in the cafeteria of the elementary school through the day soil was turned for the church building and the years beyond when all 3 sons were baptized in that church.
Nora Faye is survived by all 3 sons, Dan and his wife Judy of Frankston, Texas, David and his wife Ines of Allen, Texas, and Don and his wife Cindi of Mansfield, Texas. She is also survived by 7
grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.
Nora Faye, sadly, was predeceased by all of her husband’s siblings and spouses of those siblings and by 3 beloved nephews and the beloved husband of a niece. Nora Faye was blessed to have
many nieces and nephews and their families survive her.
She is also survived by members of her church family at Martin Memorial Methodist Church in Detroit. She enjoyed many years of volunteering with friends at the Detroit Clothes Closet.
Her 3 sons are thankful that she was such a good cook and that she refereed all their childhood fights without once settling the disputes with a spanking.
She was a great lady.
