Obituary Condolences

SCURRY After a three-year battle with inflammatory breast cancer, Dona Sherman Scurry, 70, passed away on Tuesday, June 26. Although she lost her life to this struggle, Dona won the fight. Never a complaint came from her; her grace and elegance trumped the discomfort of constant treatment. Her zest for life, intense passion for her friends and family and total commitment to her work were what best defined Dona. Her vibrant and contagious laugh and her insistence on seeking out the good in everything and everyone made her a delight to be around and a wonderful and faithful friend. Dona joined the accounting firm of Stockton, Scurry and Smith in 1979 and became a shareholder in 1983. She was deeply devoted to her many and varied clients who, along with the numerous professional and non-profit organizations she supported, were beneficiaries of her wit, wisdom and competent guidance. Dona is survived by her loving husband, Curt Jorgensen; her children, Sherman Scurry (Chris O'Neill), Willy Scurry, Gena Vaughn (Michael), Murphy Scurry (Ogi), Jennifer Kleman (Rodney), Derek Jorgensen and Michael Jorgensen; eight grandchildren and two sisters, Bunny Bell and Vickie Moore. Dona's family is most grateful for the doctors and staff at MD Anderson in Houston. Memorial contributions may be made to Rio Grande Cancer Foundation or MD Anderson. Dona's life will be memorialized at a private service.
