Twana Wiggins

Mrs. Twana Jioki Richardson Wiggins was born in Jersey City, New Jersey on January 24, 1974, to the late Bertha Richardson and the late Michael Adams. She departed this life on Wednesday, October 5, 2022, at home.

She relocated to New Bern, North Carolina for several years before relocating to Florence, South Carolina.

Twana was a proud graduate of South Florence High School Class of 1993. She furthered her education at Craven County College in New Bern, North Carolina with a Degree in Medical Administration.  She worked several years in the Medical and Healthcare field providing care to her patients, which she loved with a passion.

Twana was always the life of the party, she made sure you laughed and enjoy yourself. Her laugh was one of a kind and if you heard her laughing you automatically knew it was her. She also was an avid football fan for her favorite team, “Philadelphia Eagles.”

It is with much sadness that I'm sharing these words. I think back to Kindergarten when I would refuse to talk much in school at McLaurin Elementary School. I kept hearing someone giggling, & peeking at me around the corner to get my attention while we were in class. Alot of times, the lights would be off in class for quiet time. No ma'am, you were not hearing being quiet 😆! I kept looking and it was you trying to make friends with me while we were crawling around on the carpet. I saw you sucking that thumb, girl LOL ! You wouldn't stop laughing and smiling until I laughed back with you! Awwww, what a precious memory as children playing....so I thank you bc you helped me make friends since I was very shy and quiet, but you had me laughing in no time!! So many of us will miss the precious, and fun memories you gave us and so many people!! Take your rest now, until we meet again.
