Donna Dae Riggleman

November 6, 1944 — October 1, 2019

Donna Dae Gibson Riggleman, age 74 of Mountain View Drive, Moorefield, WV passed away Tuesday evening, October 1, 2019 at the Grant Memorial Hospital in Petersburg, WV. Born on November 6, 1944 in Covington, VA she was a daughter of the late  Reuben Johnston Hensel and Dorothy Mongole Hensel. She was a member of the Duffey Memorial United Methodist Church, a member of the Valley View Ladies Golf Association and past Coach of the Moorefield High School Golf Team.

Surviving is her husband of 54 years, Charles Richard “Dick” Riggleman; a daughter, Angela Riggleman Fraley (husband Jeff) of Moorefield, WV; a sister, Kathy Hensel of Moorefield, WV; two grandchildren, Zoe M. Fraley of Martinsburg, WV and Quincy A. Fraley (fiancé Clarissa Funkhouser) of Morgantown, WV; sister-in-law Joyce Evans of Hot Springs Village, AR, brother-in-law and sister-in-law Jack and Ellen Riggleman of Moorefield, WV; nieces, Brenda, Amanda, Emily and nephew Rob along with extended family and so, so many past students.

Funeral Services will be conducted 2:00 PM Sunday, October 6, 2019 at the Fraley Funeral Home Chapel, 107 Washington Street with Pastors Wade Armentrout & Mark Flynn officiating. Interment will follow in the Olivet Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 3:00 until 7:00 PM on Saturday at the funeral home.

She was not just Nonnie to Zoe and Quincy but to most who knew her.  Nonnie’s passion was children.  During her early teaching career, she taught Head Start in Moorefield and at the Burch School on the mountain.  She later moved to Moorefield Elementary where she taught Third Grade, First Grade, Computer Lab and Title One and even after retirement she continued her career three days a week as an interventionist.  Nonnie loved all her kids.

Nonnie’s close second passion was golf.  In her early years, she won numerous ladies club championships at Valley View Golf Club where she was a member of the Ladies Association. She and “D” passed the love of golf on to Zoe and Quincy.  Nothing made her more proud than being able to coach them as the Moorefield High School Golf Coach for many years.

Nonnie also loved to travel. She and “D” enjoyed their yearly trips to Myrtle Beach and wherever Jeff and Angie would take her, she was there.  Her favorite places were the Bahamas and Cancun and wherever her family was with her.

To most that knew her, sometimes it could be Nonnie’s way or the highway but she had a heart of gold and would give you the shirt off her back.  We all will miss her so much but she will live on in every child that she touched.  Until we see you again, we love you so much Nonnie!

Memorials in Donna’s honor may be directed to the MES Playground Fund, 400 N Main St, Moorefield, WV 26836 or the MHS Golf Team, 401 N Main St, Moorefield, WV 26836.
