Monika Hildegard Wigley

Died: Tuesday, May 23, 2006
Age: 55
Monika Hildegard Wigley, formerly of Mattituck, died peacefully at her home in Wading River on May 23.

She was born in Hamburg, Germany on July 21, 1950 to the late Armgard Jabb Vasel and Gustav Jabb. She emigrated from Germany to Riverhead in 1963, with her mother and stepfather. Mrs. Wigley attended the Riverhead Schools. Her late stepfather, Hans Vasel worked in the orchards of the family farm on Sound Ave. Her Oma, Adele Vasel, as a newcomer to Riverhead had begun baking and selling her homemade pie from the farm kitchen, a project that developed into the now well-known Briermere Farm.

Mrs. Wigley worked in several area restaurants prior to joining the waitstaff at The Elbow Room in Jamesport. She had been there for 30 years when the onset of her illness caused her to retire from the work and the active life she enjoyed. Mrs. Wigley was a member of the First Congregational Church of Riverhead and was well-known in the community. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her, for her smiling face, her kindness, and her deep love and affection for family and friends.

One of her passions was flowers, and the gardens at her Mattituck home were a colorful treat for the eyes, from the first crocus in the spring to the red berried on the holly bushes at Christmas.

She is survived by her husband of 35 years, Leighton H. Wigley; her three children, Michelle Omans of Patchogue, Tanya Wigley of Wading River, and Derek Wigley of Jamesport; seven grandchildren, Fallon, Devon, Stephanie, Brandon, Melissa, Leighton, and Kyle; her aunt Miriam Hitchcock of Riverhead, and Mark and Audrey Wigley of Mattituck.

Funeral services were held on May 26 at the First Congregational Church of Riverhead, with Rev. Walfred Scofield officiating. Interment followed in the Cutchogue Cemetery. Memorial donations may be sent to East End Hospice, P.O. Box 1048, Westhampton Beach, 11978.
