Obituary

Mamie Lee Wigger of Ashland, Missouri, formerly of Potosi, Missouri, went to be with the lord on Friday, May 22, 2020 having reached the age of eighty-seven years, four months and three days. Mamie Lee was born on January 19, 1933 in Washington County, Missouri, a daughter of the late Fred Akers and the late Hattie (Bouse) Akers.

On June 10, 1950, Mamie Lee was united in marriage to Richard Arthur Wigger at Potosi Southern Baptist Church and three children were born to this union.

Mamie Lee is survived by her three children: Richard “Dick” (Joan) Wigger, Roxie Wigger, and Jennifer Lawson; three grandchildren: Heather (Andrew) Ottinger, Eric (Leslie) Wigger, Jarod Lawson and Fiancé Kelly; two great grandchildren: Noah Ottinger and Amelia Ottinger; In-Laws: Bernice (David) Kingsland, Jewel Wigger, Evangeline Wigger, Annabelle Akers; special family friend, Leon Camillo; also surviving are nieces, nephews, church family and friends.

In addition to her parents, Mamie Lee was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 34 years; two sisters: Annabel Patterson, Dorothy Andrews, three brothers: Fred Akers Jr., Bill Akers, Perry Akers; sisters-in-law: Iva Emily, Shirley Akers, and Virginia Inman; brothers-in-law: Wyman Wigger, Noel Inman, and Pat Patterson. Mamie Lee was also preceded in death by many other dear family members.

Mamie was a Washington County resident for eighty-two years. Her work, in public service at the Washington County Health Department, spanned four decades. Her compassion for others was seen in the many programs that grew or began under her leadership at the Health Department. She also volunteered her time with the American Red Cross, Christmas for Kids, and her church, Potosi Southern Baptist Church. Mamie was a longtime member of Providence Baptist Church prior to moving to Potosi.

In 2015, Mamie made the difficult decision to move closer to her family. During the five years she spent in Central Missouri she was an integral part of her children’s and grandchildren’s lives. Most importantly, she was able to spend quality time with her greatest joys, her great grandchildren. She enjoyed teaching the great grandkids how to bake cookies and would weekly make cookies for them.

The memories her family will cherish are innumerable - cookie trays for family and friends each year, wedding and baby quilts, “something” embroidered for every Christmas, chicken and dumplings, red velvet cake, wilted lettuce, reading and her love of game shows.

Visitation will be held on Friday, May 29, 2020 from 5 to 8 PM at DeClue Funeral Home. Visitation will resume on Saturday, May 30, 2020 from 9 to 11 AM.

Funeral Services will be held Saturday, May 30, 2020 at 11 AM at DeClue Funeral Home. Brother John Edwards will be officiating. Interment will follow in New Masonic Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial may be made to the American Cancer Society in memory of Mamie Lee. Envelopes will be available at the funeral home.

Funeral arrangements were respectfully entrusted to the care and direction of the DeClue Funeral Home.

I remember Aunt Mamie Lee and Uncle Arthur coming to visit us when I was four or five years old. Uncle Arthur picked me up
when I tumbled down our flight of stairs. I also recall spending a week with them in summer. Aunt Mamie Lee let me do dishes.

Mamie will be well remembered in our neighborhood for her generous heart. She kept so many of us supplied with sourdough bread and Christmas cookies. My family especially looked forward to the Christmas cookies. The grandchildren would call to ask if Mamie had “brought the cookies yet”. We were shameless when it came to her cookies. They never lasted long. Mamie was a good neighbor. She has been missed during the past five years.

To the family of Mamie Lee, you have my deepest sympathy. I have fond memories of your Mom. She worked with my Mom, Margaret Meyer for many years at the health department. She and my Mom were special friends. Your Dad was my eighth grade teacher at Richwoods. Once in awhile he would bring little Dickie with him. With fond memories, Nancy Meyer Brod
