Born in Wake County on September 5, 1915, Mrs. Riggsbee was a daughter of Cicero and Nonie Lawrence. She was employed by Odell Mfg. for 45 years, retiring at age 70 due to the mill being closed down.

Mrs. Riggsbee was a member of Bynum United Methodist Church where she had served as president of the UMW.
