Wiggins, Elizabeth

 

Died in Edgecombe county, N. C., on the 28th January, 1872, of Pneumonia, after an illness of five days, Mrs. Elizabeth Wiggins, wife of Wright Wiggins, aged 63 years.  The subject of this notice left a devoted husband and one child to mourn their irreparable loss, which is her eternal gain.  Nearly two years previous to her last illness she was confined on the bed of affliction, suffering at times the most agonizing pain nearly twelve months, which to a spectator appeared almost insupportable, but she bore it gently and patiently, with all the fortitude of a Christian, and often spoke of that “little hope in Jesus after death.”  She was a kind and affectionate wife, a tender and devoted mother, a good neighbor, and respected by her numerous friends and acquaintances.  She possessed many noble qualities, charity among the brightest, and took great pleasure in contributing the necessaries of life to the poor and needy.  By her death there is a vacancy that can not be filled.  To the bereaved father and son the humble writer extends a heartfelt sympathy.  Amid grief we can but rejoice in the hope that her spirit rests with Jesus in the realms of eternal life.
