1929 - 2020
LUBBOCK- Jeanne Scarborough, 90, passed away Sunday, March 22, 2020. Jeanne was born to Mitt and Nannie Mae Bullard on March 28, 1929 in Canyon, TX. Jeanne married Tom Scarborough in Lubbock on November 23, 1947, and they were faithful partners for over 66 years. Jeanne received a bachelor's degree in English from Texas Tech, and taught in Wilson, TX, for several years with her mother. Together with her husband, Tom, they started their business, Tom's Tree Place in 1950. Jeanne was first and foremost a child of the living God. She was generous almost to a fault and loved to invest in people's lives. She had unwavering faith and a deep love for the Lord and the Scriptures. She was also incredibly optimistic, cheerful, and loved a good project. She instilled those values into those around her and together with Tom, left a Godly legacy for their children.

Jeanne is survived by her daughter, Janoma Rowin and husband Dale; son, Tom Mitt Scarborough and wife Scherry; son, Alex Scarborough and wife Shellie; and son Scott Scarborough and wife Tina, all of Lubbock. She is also survived by grandchildren, Sasha and Frank Bennett, Toby Rowin, Ty and Erin Rowin, Josh and Alison Rowin, Ben and Elizabeth Scarborough, Lexie and Kelly Futrell, Abigail and Cole Jones, Bailey and Brian Ratcliffe, Renni Scarborough, Emma and Ethan Morte, and Caleb Scarborough, all of Lubbock and Lt. Commander Cody and Jennifer Scarborough of Nebraska, as well as seventeen great-grandchildren and beloved brother, Brad Bullard of Junction. Preceded in death by her parents; step-mother, Cleo Wilkerson Bullard; husband, Tom Scarborough; infant daughter, Cherry Laurel Scarborough; and granddaughter-in-law Jennie Crump Rowin. Jeanne loved the Lord until her last breath, and she shared that love with all that knew her.
