Louise Briggs Wiggins, 81, went to be with the Lord on May 26, 2014, and on that day there was a great reunion with her husband of 59 years, Pete Wiggins.

She was the daughter of the late Lula and James Allen Briggs and was predeceased by her husband Herbert Riddick Wiggins, “PETE.”

Louise had a love for flowers, hummingbirds and canning vegetables, but most of all she loved being a mother and grandmother. She also enjoyed the time with her husband after his retirement when they lived in Florida.
