Mrs. Riggs was associated with the Wall Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses and active in Bible instruction and the door-to-door ministry since her baptism in 1942. Her fondest memories are the 11 International Assemblies of Jehovah's Witnesses she attended with her husband over the years in Africa, the Pacific, South America, England, Germany, and Russia.

All her beloved immediate family predeceased her: Grandparents, William and Helena Luttman; Stepfather and mother, Aldridge and Helen M. Hill; and aunt, Johanna Luttman. Mrs. Riggs is survived by several cousins and loving spiritual family in local congregations of Jehovah's Witnesses. She was an avid dog lover and always had a canine companion or two.
