Becky E. Scurlock Whisenhunt, 52 a resident of Cleveland passed away Monday in a local hospital.
Becky Scurlock Whisenhunt, a beloved daughter of Harold and Sheila Scurlock, born September 14, 1969 in Waverly, TN and later made her home in Cleveland, TN. Becky received her Bachelors of Science in Education from Lee University, Masters of Science in Educational Administration & Educational Specialist Degree (Ed.S) from Lincoln Memorial University.
Becky taught at Taylor Elementary School in Bradley County for 16 years then transitioned to middle school at East Lake Academy of Fine Arts in Hamilton County.
Becky sparked joy for learning and adored each child she taught. She made lasting friendships everywhere she went with her giving and loving spirit, which was shown by her nomination to the Pay it Forward program. By seeing the physical needs she helped to found Steps For A Family Ministry, for going above and beyond what was ever asked to give to the children in her community. Becky followed her faith devoutly in God and Jesus Christ. Everyday she chose to live by faith not fear for herself and inspired everyone around her. Lakeview Community Church was where Becky attended and volunteered. Becky married Chris Whisenhunt in 2007. When Becky gained the title of being a mother there was nothing she cherished more on earth than being mom to Marcus Travis Whisenhunt.
On May 30, 2022 Becky was welcomed into her heavenly home, reunited with her sister, Marla Scurlock-Sharp. She will always be remembered by her contagious smile, her heart for everyone. If you came into contact with her you knew love as she so graciously gave it. When we swim, sunbathe, and see the flowers bloom in the summer we will think of Becky.
Becky Scurlock-Whisenhunt is survived by her husband, Christopher Whisenhunt; Son, Marcus Whisenhunt; Father and Mother, Harold & Sheila Scurlock. As well as: Joshua and Latishua Scurlock, Jordan Sharp, Kaylea and Taylor Spurlin, Travis and Darlene Whisenhunt, Tammy Whisenhunt and Jada Brisendine.
