Virginia Maxine Smith Scaglione, 82, of Mooresville, N.C., passed away on Sunday, September 25, 2022. She was born on July 28, 1940, in Mooresville to the late Burton and Ruby Cockman Smith.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded by her loving husband of 59 years, Ernest Mauro Scaglione; son, Paul Scaglione; grandson, Clifford Sandy; and eight siblings.

She is survived by her children, Michael Scaglione (Christine), Jimmy Scaglione (Lula), Lisa Mote (Donnie), Joseph Scaglione, and Andy Scaglione (Kim); sister, Hazel Bowers (Mike); grandchildren, Carly Blevins (Clint), Anthony Scaglione, Ernest Scaglione, Kayla Mote, Myca Scaglione, Eddie Mote, and Marissa Scaglione; and great-grandchildren, Elijah Graham and Mason Blevins.
