Our dear Mother, Bettie June Brady Marshall Riggin, residing in Plant City, Fla., born June 1, 1954, began her journey into heaven May 12, 2019. Mom will be received in her heavenly home by her parents, Sam and Doris Brady; angel son, Jason Lee Marshall; sisters, Mary Ellen Birch, Beaulah Elliott, Marie Willis, and Debbie Brady; and brother, Dan Brady.

She leaves behind here on earth her husband, Vincent Eugene Riggin, of Cape Charles; sons, Zachary Marshall Cardwell (David Cardwell), of Plant City, Fla., and Samuel Wayne Marshall, of Cape Charles; a daughter, Barbara Angela Marshall, of Cape Charles; and a nephew/son, John Edward Brady, of Cape Charles. Mrs. Riggin had a title that she cherished much like a queen and that was “Mommom” (friends of her children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews referenced her as this). There was nothing more important to her than being “Mommom” to her grandchildren, Hollie Marshall, Erica Arizmendi, Renae Parkhurst, Allyssa Marshall, Trinity Marshall, and A.J. Price; and step-grandsons, Andrew McBee, Grant Cardwell, and Blake Cardwell. Mrs. Riggin also leaves here on earth a big brother whom she loves with all her heart, Samuel Brady (Louise Brady), of Capeville; and many special nieces and nephews.

She had welcomed many into her home, fed many meals to others, and cherished her animals. In memory of our mom we ask that you wear a tie-dye or an Eastern Shore themed shirt during the visitation held at the funeral home, for she was a proud Shore girl and loved to wear them.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, May 18, 2019, at 4 p.m. at Lower Northampton Baptist Church with the Rev. Jeff Conrow officiating. Interment will follow in Capeville Masonic Cemetery. Family will join friends at the funeral home Friday evening from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. Flowers will be accepted or memorials may be made to SPCA Eastern Shore Inc., P.O. Box 164, Onley, VA 23418.
