With consoling hearts, the Majestic Family is assisting the precious loved ones of Mrs. Burlener Burden Riggans as they prepare to say “Farewell” to this virtuous woman.
The Legacy Remembering events will commence on Monday, September 10, 2018 between the hours of 5pm and 7pm in the main chapel on the pristine grounds of Majestic Funeral Home and Cremations for moments of visitation and reflection. At 11 o’clock Tuesday morning, a Triumphant Obsequious will begin also at Mt. Zion AME Zion Church in Elizabethtown. Following the Order of Divine worship in the sanctuary, Mrs. Riggan’s delicate vessel along with her adored family will be escorted to the Riggans Family Cemetery in Tar Heel, NC for Interment Rites. There’s nothing like a “good mother” and the love and values that she has forever etched in the hearts and minds of her children and other relatives will sustain them although she is now in the company of our Heavenly Father, resting in everlasting peace beyond the sky.
Left to cherish her memories are her children: Harry Joseph Jr., (Lillian) of Eutawville, SC, Lois Cromartie of Newburgh, NY, Jeremiah of White Plains , NY, Nathaniel (Mary Ruth) of Hope Mills, NC, Gloria Downing of Rocky Mount, NC, Lou Ellen Riggans-Avotri (Kosi) of Mobile, AL, Callie Mae Brown, Woody Herman, Grace Whitaker and Sabra Grimes, all of Elizabethtown, NC; a very special daughter/granddaughter: Sharon Jones; thirty-five grandchildren; sixty-two great-grandchildren; twelve great-great grandchildren; one sister: Minnie Pone and a host of nieces, nephews, other family and friends.
The Compassionate Professionals of Majestic Funeral Home are catering to the individual requests of the Riggans and connected families with uncompromising dignity.
