Barbara E. Wiggins of Bluffton, South Carolina (affectionately known as Big Barbara) passed away suddenly the afternoon of December 28, 2017.

A daughter of the late John and Eleanor Eidson of Toccoa, Georgia, she grew up in Athens and Toccoa Georgia with a stay in Charleston, SC during WW II.

While attending Brenau College, she met Clemson student Ed Wiggins. After they married in 1958, Ed and Barbara settled in Bluffton SC where Ed began his architectural career on Hilton Head SC. They raised five children moving between Bluffton, Savannah and Hilton Head. Barbara assisted Ed in his business throughout the years and later established a rental property company.
Barbara had a classy presence, a beautiful faith and a love for people. She lived life to the fullest and possessed a love for art, a gift of interior design and thrived when working on a project. Her deep and numerous friendships with a wide variety of people reflect her father’s saying that “everyone is a somebody.” She will be greatly missed by many here.

Barbara was preceded in death by her husband Edgar Causey Wiggins, Jr. She is survived by her sister, Bobbie Hamby of Toccoa, Ga; Her children: Vikki Kemp of Queens NY, Edgar C. Wiggins, III of Bluffton SC, Clay Wiggins of Honolulu HI , Tucker Wiggins of Bluffton SC and Marie-C. Skiotis of Sharpsburg, GA:. Her grandchildren: Ian, Caroline, Michael-Clayton, Jack, David and Stephen Kemp; Jacob, John Jordan, Joshua, Hannah and Noah Skiotis; Alex and Drew Wiggins; and Zoe Wiggins: Her great-grandchildren Layla, Max, and Lilly Kemp.

A Memorial Service was held on January 2, 2018 11:30 am, at Christian Renewal Church of Hilton Head Island with Pastor Gilbert Posey officiating and music performed by both church and guest performers. Burial of ashes will be a private family gathering at a later date. Donations, in lieu of flowers, can be made to either Black Swamp Cemetery Perpetual Care fund, Operation Mobilization for Marie-C and John Skiotis, or Christain Renewal Church.

Sauls Funeral Home, Bluffton, South Carolina was in charge of the arrangements for Mrs. Barbara Eidson Wiggins.
