One sunny morning on September 22, 1948, a beautiful, bouncy baby entered into this world. She was the delight of her father, Raymond Thompson and mother Ruby Lee Terrell Thompson. They named this gift from God, Mary Helen.

She loved to play with her siblings, yet there was something enchanting about her that would make others think that his child was a special gift.

Often you found her talking with her mother and others about the splendor of the universe and God. She knew that there was something more to life than what she had experienced.

Like all children, she went to school where she excelled. While attending Morgan County High School she was a cheerleader and excelled in sports. She was a caring and nurturing person who often fed others just because they were hungry.

She acknowledge her Lord and Savior as head of her life and was a member of Macedonia Cumberland Presbyterian Church in America.

Helen as she was affectionately called by family and friends, was united in holy matrimony to Eddie Wiggins for over 56 years and to this union four children were born: Timothy Wiggins, Sharon Wiggins Stinnett and Erica Wiggins. She also had one daughter that preceded her in death, Amber Michelle Wiggins.

She was preceded in death by her parents, one daughter, a sister, Connie Jean Toney; and brothers, Harold Thompson and James Henry Thompson.

Those that will always cherish her memory are: her husband, Eddie Wiggins; daughters, Sharon W Stinnett and Erica Wiggins; son Timothy Wiggins all of Decatur, AL; bonus children, Elder Benjamin Burt (Cynthia) of Madison, AL, Lisa Fletcher (Patrick) of Madison, AL, Courtney Bouldin of Decatur and Marcus Bouldin (Tameka) of Limestone County, AL; granddaughters, Brittney Stinnett, Whittney Stinnett and Santana Burt; grandsons, Desmond Wiggins and Jeremiah Burt; four great-grandchildren, Labron, Madison, Aryn and Oriaya; two nieces, Stephanie Jones, Cierra Campbell; six nephews, Wendall, David, Barry, Robert, Derrick, Anthony; a host of other relatives and many friends.
