Margie passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 17, 2020, at her home following a long battle with Alzheimer's Dementia. She is now at peace with Jesus Christ and her departed family. Margie was born on November 10, 2934, on Clara Avenue in the Austinville Community. Her parents were Chester and Pauline King, also of Austinville, and beloved by many. Margie had one sister, Faye King Millwood. Their only name for each other was "Sister."
Margie had four children, and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. She was a lifelong member of Austinville United Methodist Church, and her devotion to her church was well known and shared with everyone. She was married for 37 years to Harold Wayne Riggs, and they continued that love throughout their lives.
She loved music, her many friends, and Alabama football. Her kindness to everyone she met was genuine, and her love for the Lord was the defining relationship in her life. The love of Christ was the light that shown through Margie, and will forever continue to light the paths of all who knew her. Her first words to Jesus: What took you so long!?
If you knew her and loved her, God bless you.
Pallbearers will be family and friends.
