Charlotte Riggs, 1924-2015






Born in San Francisco on Nov. 21, 1924, Charlotte M. Riggs, faithful wife to Orlando B. Riggs for 63 years, and loving mother to son Jack F. Riggs, died on June 1, 2015, at Kaiser Permanente Hospital from a fall suffered at her senior living residence.

For many years Charlotte worked at the Presidio in San Francisco, purchasing military items for the Federal Government. When she retired she was an avid golfer, tennis and bridge player in the retirement community of Oakmont. In her eighties she acquired Alzheimer’s disease and lived in a memory care center at a senior living facility.

Charlotte was born the third out of seven children – the younger four are still living.

Charlotte’ ashes, along with Orlando B. Riggs’ are located in a niche at Pleasant Hills Memorial Park & Mortuary, 1700 Pleasant Hill Rd., Sebastopol.
