Mrs. Denise Louise Wiggins, 62 of Bonifay, died on Saturday, July 5, 2014, at her home in Bonifay. Born Sunday, Feb. 24, 1952 in York, Neb., she was the daughter of the late Bill Travis and the late Mildred Brunk Travis. Denise Wiggins made a lasting impression on this world and she will be dearly missed. She touched the lives of countless others in many ways with her tender kindness, gentle goodness, joyful laughter and selfless service. She harbored no resentment, jealousy, bitterness or envy. She was virtuous, caring, forgiving and sweet. Her whole life was like her work at the nursing home where she would hold the hand of someone needing comfort, read a scripture to someone needing faith and say a prayer for someone needing grace. Her deep love for her husband, daughters, grandchildren and all her family and friends was unconditional and never-ending. She was a lovely flower in this world and now she blooms in heaven where her beauty will never fade away. May she rest in peace in God's eternal loving arms.
She is survived by her husband Robert Jerry Wiggins; daughters, Wendy Seem and husband Christian of Brentwood, Tenn., and Sandra Harris and husband Ronnie of Bonifay; brothers, Ron Travis of Panama City and Billy Travis of Ft. Worth, Texas; sister, Kristie Patton of Hot Springs, Ark., and seven grand children, Brooke Riley, Hunter Duffell, Logan Seem, Cameran Duffell, Larson Seem, Lacey Seem and Blane Harris.
