Mercedes Diane Scales, “Mercy” went home to be with the Lord unexpectedly early morning on Sunday June 7 at the age of 24. Her puppy Porter who was also her best friend went with her.

She is survived by her parents Donald and Diane Burks of Christiansburg, her sister Holly Henry (Seth) of Front Royal, Leslie Lundy (David) of Hillsville, brothers Alex Hirsch, Cameron Hirsch (Kristen) both of Front Royal, Devay Burks (Melissa), Ron Burks and Byron Burks all of Blacksburg, and James Higgins (Scot) of Willis VA, Special Aunts Jane Moore and Karen Burks, many cousins and loving friends.

Mercy was a graduate of Christiansburg High School and went on to get her Bachelors from Radford University and then her Master’s from Liberty University. She was currently living in Falls Church working as a loan closer at a Credit Union. Mercy loved animals. Her smile was infectious, she was light of every room she was in. She will be truly missed by many.

We are asking in lieu of flowers to please donate to the local Humane Society or Animal Shelter.
