Obituary of Sarah Catherine Wiggins
Sarah Catherine (Cathy) Crisp Wiggins, 68, of Bryson City, NC, went home to be with the Lord Jan. 28, 2022, after an extended illness. She was preceded in death by her parents, Buell M. and Janet (McLendon) Crisp and brother, Thomas McCormick Crisp and sister-in-law, Treska Hatton Crisp. Cathy was born in Fernandina Beach, FL on Aug. 2, 1953. After graduation from high School, she moved to Bryson City where she met and married Dwight Wiggins. He built a home on Alarka where they shared a love for animals. Cathy was soft spoken, kindhearted and giving. She especially enjoyed being a cowgirl. Music became a special interest. She took fiddle lessons and from there began playing guitar, banjo and mandolin. Cathy was employed by Swain County Dept. of Social Services for several years, then Swain County Building Inspection and Emergency Services where she retired in 2003. After retirement, she became a full-time cowgirl helping Dwight take care of their horses and other farm animals. She is survived by her husband of 41 years, Dwight B.
