Marilyn Henson Riggs, 67, died Nov. 19, 2003, in the hospital after a valiant battle with cancer. Funeral services were conducted Nov. 22 in Greenwood Chapel. Burial was at Greenwood Memorial Park.

Mrs. Riggs was born Aug. 25, 1936, in San Angelo. As a child she attended Santa Rosa Elementary School, Lee Junior High and San Angelo High School. In 1954, she entered Texas Christian University and was in the Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority. Her free spirit and artistic talents led her to pursue a career in Art, but her father convinced her that she needed an occupation that she could fall back on. Mrs. Riggs followed her father's advice and obtained a BA in Elementary Education.  She used her creative spirit to touch the hearts and minds of special needs children that she worked with.

She married her childhood sweetheart, Billy Riggs on Aug. 30, 1957.

It was during her college days that she was approached by a modeling scout. Thus she began her fashion career as a lark, doing run-way and television work. Her hobby soon turned into a full-time career, and it wasn't long before she was offered her own television show.

The couple spent time in Oklahoma City before moving to Houston and then ultimately settling in the Fort Worth area. She continued her fashion career and worked the catwalks until she and Billy decided to retire to the family ranch in West Texas.

She had been living in Comanche on the family ranch with her husband, since 1999. Living the true Green Acres lifestyle, they traded in the cattle to raise exotics. It was a favorite sight to see Mrs. Riggs in her starched white jeans tucked into mud boots out amongst the animals.

She returned to Fort Worth in September of last year when she was first diagnosed with her illness. Mrs. Riggs will be forever remembered for her beautiful spirit, her sparkling eyes and her permanent smile. She radiated with compassion, kindness and openness. Her house was always open, and it was an ongoing joke that she had no front door, only a revolving one, as the spare bedrooms continued to be filled long after the kids were grown.

Her gift of overwhelming unselfishness and thoughtfulness has touched the hearts of many. Her sense of humor and graciousness remained until her final day.

Mrs. Riggs was a member of the Westcliff Garden Club, the Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority Alumni Association and the Fort Worth Geological and Geophysical Auxiliary.

Mrs. Riggs was preceded in death by her mother, Alice Henson and father, Dick Lewis Henson. 

Survivors: husband of 46 years, Bill I. Riggs of Fort
Worth and Comanche; daughters, Alisha "Alex" Riggs of Fort Worth and Cynthia Riggs Loving and husband James of Corpus Christi; and granddaughter, Alexandria "Lexy" Loving of Corpus Christi.

Memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society.
