Ellen Ferguson Death, Obituary – Ellen Ferguson has reportedly died unexpectedly with loved ones, family and the entire community left heartbroken and in grievance, according to online sharing. Ellen Riggin’s birthday is August 22nd, and she was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1916. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is where she was born and raised. Her parents, Winnie (Carmean) Riggin and Herman Riggin had both gone away before she was born. Neither of them ever got to meet her. She did not move away from Philadelphia until 2004 when she did so in order to be closer to her children and grandchildren who lived in the Northern States. She did this so that she could spend more time with them. She was born and raised in Philadelphia, and she had spent the entirety of her life in the city.
During the time that she spent in the Massena area, she was a member of the Calvary Baptist Church. Ellen was employed by Honeywell in Minneapolis throughout the relevant time period. There, she was in charge of the assembly of a variety of electrical components and was accountable for the time period in issue. 1978 was the year that she decided to take early retirement, and one of her priorities at that time was to hone her skills as a hand quilter. Mothers and Others was an organization that had meetings in Bristol, Pennsylvania, and Ellen was a member of it. This group got together once a week for the better part of a day, and they normally had two quilt frames set up with ladies working diligently on each one of them. This activity lasted for the majority of the day.
Ellen was a part of this community of people. She was so pleased with how well she had done that she made a patchwork quilt for every single member of her family. In addition to that, Ellen led historical walking tours of Bristol for a significant amount of time over the course of that city’s history for quite a while. She is survived by her children Herbert and Phyllis Spence of Massena; her grandchildren Steve and Linda Spence of South Carolina; her great-grandchildren Jeremy and Michelle (Spence) Archer-Waterman, MD, Steven and Mallory Spence of St. Regis Falls, and Matthew Spence of Rochester; in addition, she is survived by her great-great-grandchildren Jaymi and Ben Spence; her daughter in law Carol Mignoni Ferguson of Bristol, Pennsylvania; and three nieces
