Barbara Ann Milum Wiggins, age 78, of Cumming passed away Saturday, March 4, 2017 at Chestnut Ridge Nursing Home after a long battle with dementia. She was born in Columbia, Tenn., on Feb. 14, 1939. After high school, she joined the U.S. Air Force, which was always a point of pride with her.
As a young mother, Barbara became a Nurse's Aide, which led to emergency room work. She became one of the first EMTs in the State of Georgia and excelled in that career. She worked for Ingram Funeral Home about thirty years, first as an EMT for their ambulance service and later as a secretary.
Barbara is preceded in death by her parents, William Harold and Grenada Estelle Milum.
She is survived by her daughters she so adored, Donnie (John) Dickerson, and Vicky Miller; and the grandsons she cherished, Kane Miller, and Ethan Dickerson all of Cumming; sisters, Bettie Godfrey of Winder, Peggy Healey of Cumming, Patsy (Johnny) Redd of Dawsonville; brother, William (Brenda) Milum Jr. of Irving, Texas; and a number of nieces, nephews and other family members.
