Margie Ann Wiggins

October 22, 1948 — November 26, 2017

Margie Ann Wiggins, of Brenham, who previously lived in Mexia and Groesbeck, passed away at home in Brenham, on Sunday, November 26, 2017, at age 69. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Wednesday, November 29, 2017, in the Groesbeck Funeral Home Chapel. Her brother-in-law, Joe Hunt, will officiate, and burial will follow in Fort Parker Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Jay Winkelmann, Javier Macias, Jr., Johnny Wilburn, Joe Araujo, Michael Mooney, and Papillion Mooney; and her nephews will be honorary pallbearers. Margie was born October 22, 1948 to Elmer Elledge and Penny (Ferguson) Elledge in Leonard, TX. She grew up and went to school in Plainview. Margie was united in marriage with Ernest Wiggins on April 22, 1968 in Plainview. While Ernest was in the Navy they moved to Virginia for a short time and then to the Dallas area. During his work career as an air conditioning and refrigeration technician, they made their home in various towns, including Edna and El Campo, before their final move to Mexia and then Groesbeck, where he was employed as the technician for Brookshires. In her younger years in the early 90’s while living in El Campo, Margie drove 76 miles to Houston, twice a week, for her personal volunteer ministry to feed the homeless. She carried homemade soup, cornbread, and Kool-aid in the back of her truck, and delivered hot meals to them on the streets where she found them. Mr. Wiggins funded the expense and Margie spent many hours at home canning produce and soups so she could provide these hot meals. After moving to Mexia, she volunteered to operate the concession stand for the Mexia Community Soccer League games every Saturday morning for four years. She cooked and served burgers and nachos to many young people in this area. Margie was a housewife, mother and loving grandmother. She loved playing card games, especially Uno and Skipbo, and loved winning. She maintained her interest in playing these games even on the last day of her life. She had moved to Brenham about four years ago to be near her doctors in Bryan-College Station. Mrs. Wiggins was preceded in death by her parents; her in-laws, Irene and Alvin Wiggins; her brothers, Billy, Donald, DeWayne, and sister, Maudie; and her husband, Ernest Wiggins, in August 2008. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Polly and Javier Macias of Groesbeck; daughter and son-in-law, Jennifer and Douglas Nichols of Brenham; son and daughter-in-law, Ernest and Renee Wiggins, Jr. of Knoxville, Tennessee; 15 grandchildren; and 19 great grandchildren. She is also survived by three sisters, Rosie Tubb of Gober, TX., Betty and husband Joe Hunt of Bailey, TX, Bittie Whitley of Bailey, TX; brother, Arthur Elledge of Plainview; and many nieces and nephews.
