Frances Margaret Biggers Obituary
Biggers, Frances Margaret 02/17/1926 ~ 05/21/2014 SAN DIEGO -- Frances Biggers passed away on Wednesday, May 21st, at Alvarado Medical Center in San Diego, CA, following a brief struggle with colon cancer. Frances was born to Frances and Joseph "Rueben" Summerfold on February 17th in Brooklyn, NY, where she spent her early childhood. In May of 1947, she married Chester "Chet" Biggers. Chet was a career Navy Man and they settled in San Diego and bought a home in 1951, where she still lived. Chet and Frances had one child - Margaret Rose. Frances worked as a teletype operator for Western Union, Caterpiller and Solar Industries. Frances loved to travel and she and Chet and her sisters took several cruises and visited Europe and Hawaii. She also enjoyed weekly bingo groups, playing cards and lunches with her "BFF" Lorraine Wright. Chet passed away in January 1994. She was also predeceased by her parents, a brother Martin and a sister Loretta. Frances is survived by her daughter and son- in-law Margaret Rose and Dan Darkenwald; sisters Teresa Principe (Vinny) and Barbara Ahus (Vincent), her sister-in-law Jane Summerfold, their daughter Margaret, 3 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. The Funeral Mass will be held Friday, July 18, 2014, at Holy Spirit Catholic Church, 2725 55th Street, San Diego, CA, at 10:30 a.m. A reception will follow in the church hall. Her ashes will be placed with Chet's at Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego, California. Because we live "way up here" in Montana, the family would like to thank the many neighbors, especially June West and Rita Osterman, who have loved and looked after Frances through the years.
