Ava Glancy Scurry was born September 27, 1946 in Rocky Mount, NC.  She was called home on June 18, 2021 at the age of 74 at the Lutheran Home of the Good Shepherd, New Rockford, ND.  She was a loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend.

Ava enjoyed having coffee at the Westby’s and visiting them when she could.  She also enjoyed crafts and music and playing cards.  She loved her Bible study and put all her trust in the Lord.  Ave enjoyed staying at the Lutheran Home of the Good Shepherd in New Rockford, ND, until COVID set in and kept her from seeing her loved ones as often as she would have liked.  The home treated her like family and some even brought their little ones to see her, which always brightened her day.

She was preceded in death by her parents Martha and Clarence Glancy and her little sister Ginny Glancy. 

She is survived by her children Ginny Pospisil (Melissa) of Morehead City, NC and Dottie Doak (Doug) of Carrington, ND and her grandson Lee Pospisil of Portland, OR.  She is also survived by her brother Bobby Glancy (Nancy) of Rocky Mount, NC, special friend Tony Rademacher, nieces, grandnieces and grandnephews.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to any animal rescue.

Visitation will be held Monday, June 21, 2021 from 9:00AM – 10:00AM followed by a Funeral Service at 10:00AM all at Evans Funeral Home, Carrington, ND.

  5. May you rest in peace….enjoyed our visits at the home and at Bettys’.

  6. Tony & Family of Ava, I was taken aback to hear of Ava passing. When I worked at the home there was not one day that I didn’t spend extra time in her room. We made a habit of trying to find the answers to the show America Says….often we said we should go on the show and they would see how smart we are!!! Ava will always hold a special place in my heart. My deepest sympathy to all of you and I hope as the days go by the hurt will be replaced by loving thoughts.

  7. Ginny & Dottie & Family I am so sorry to hear about your Mom! We were best friends in school. We spent many nights at sleep overs & went to the teenage club together. We had the best times! I still remember the cookout she had when she turned 13! I loved to go to her house because your grandparents were the best too! And of course her little brother Bobby! Prayers for y’all! I know it’s hard to lose your Mom!

  8. Ava and I were friends in High School and for many years after. We missed her when she moved so far away but we kept in touch as best we could. One time she said how much she missed the beach so I bought her a bottle of Atlantic Beach sand and sent it to her. Sherry, Margaret, Prissy, Linda D. and me, Linda S. remember all the good times we had…..Ava will be missed.

  9. My deepest sympathy in the loss of your Mother, grandson and family’s. Ava was my volunteer companion and we became fast friends thru all my visits. I even visited several times at the home. A very sweet and wonderful friend. R I P dear friend. Linda

  10. Ava, my friend. I am so thankful we had some time to spend together if only via the phone. Your smile, your laughter and your love for the Lord was contagious. May God hold you in His arms always. My thoughts, prayers and condolences to the family at this time of such sorrow.

  11. I am so sorry to hear of about Ava! I always enjoyed visiting with her; she was a special lady! She could always make me laugh- she told it like it was!
