Born October 17, 1933 in Lynchburg VA, Mrs. Eggleston was the daughter of the late Raymond L. Scott Sr. and Katherine Virginia Wood.  She was the devoted wife of the late George C. Eggleston Jr. for over sixty-four years who preceded her in death in 2015. She was preceded in death by a son, Gregory Scott Eggleston, two brothers, Raymond L. Scott, Jr., Charles M. Scott Sr., a sister, Mary Lou Miller and her beloved dog Dudley.

Mrs. Eggleston is survived by her daughter, TammieLee Eggleston-Wooldridge, husband William “Tommy” Wooldridge of Bedford and grandson Thomas Scott Eggleston Wooldridge of Houston TX; a sister-in-law, Dorothy C.

Mrs. Eggleston attended E.C. Glass High School and worked in her early days of marriage as a secretary for Nationwide Insurance, later becoming a stay at home mother of 2. She loved her flower gardens, cooking, canning & freezing the garden vegetables, decorating the home, crocheting, organizing the family photo albums, vacations at the beach and time spent at the family lake home. Mrs. Eggleston had a particularly close relationship with her mother, sister and brothers. Spoke often of her dear mother that passed away, way too young, prior to her own physical decline. She was the family chauffer for all the many trips to see her sister and brother’s family in Wytheville and Bland, VA.

My mom, Elizabeth Reynolds, (who also recently passed away) were best of friends when we lived in Sheffield. Lots of great memories growing up as neighbors with the Egglestons. Our family had wonderful experiences with many of the activities mentioned in Barbara’s obituary. Greg was one of my best friends. Our families spent lots of time together including vacationing together. So thankful for all the good memories with Barbara. Praying for Tammie & family.
