Wiggins Lift Company, Inc., a manufacturer of lift trucks for marine and heavy-duty applications is mourning the death of family patriarch Hattie America Wiggins.

“For 63 years she lead, encouraged, taught, advised, and kept her curious and thoughtful eyes on every detail. In fact, few details escaped her notice and all of us were better for it.” says CEO and granddaughter Michele Wiggins-McDowell.

“Because of who she was and when she grew up we always had something to learn from her. These are just a few of our favorites… There is always a better way to do something, keep looking for it; make the effort to use your mind instead of your muscles; the details matter; treat everyone around you with respect and dignity.” Wiggins-McDowell added.

A memorial service will be held at the Ventura Church of Christ on Wednesday, November 28th at 12:30 pm followed by a burial at Ivy Lawn Memorial Park in Ventura, CA.
