July 15, 1971 - April 7, 2021
Metter, Georgia Alicia Nicole Wiggins, age 49, tragically lost her long-term battle with addiction while in her home on Wednesday April 07, 2021. “Nikki” as everyone knew her was a beloved daughter, sister, mother, Granny, niece, cousin, and friend. Alicia was born in Chatham County on July 15, 1971 and raised in Bulloch County, Ga for most of her life. She was the daughter of the late Lewis Lander Wiggins of Twin City and Mary Fay Bradley of Statesboro. She is survived by her daughter’s Amber Law (Brett Law) of Statesboro, Ga, Amanda Small (Matthew McLean) of Manlius, NY, Ashley Morgado of Claxton, GA, Tina Morgan (Adam Morgan) of Crossville, TN, Tammy Small (EJ Morgan) of Cookeville, TN, nieces Christina Edwards (Carl Edwards) of Ellabell, 19 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren, her partner of seven years, Dusty Garrison of Statesboro and a beloved dog Pistol. She is preceded in death by her parents, brother, Lewis Allen Wiggins, grandson, Jesus Guadalupe Ruiz Rosado Small and grandson Ethan Dominic Peterson. In her sober years, Alicia found great joy and fulfillment in attending church at Macedonia Baptist Church, assisting as a “shampoo girl” at her Mother’s hair salon, taking family trips to visit with her Granny Wiggins, singing to the top of her lungs and dancing around the house with her five daughters, making spontaneous and unplanned trips to swim in the Ogeechee River, and spending countless girl’s days at her Mama’s filled with cooking, fixing hair and doing makeup. In her all too short life, she held a series of jobs which ranged from homemaker, cashier, waitress, and healthcare worker but found her calling when she became a Certified Nursing Assistant. Her disease never clouded her love and devotion towards helping others! In 2000, Alicia received her greatest achievement when the Lord promoted her from Mama to Granny. Despite her many challenges, through this blessing she discovered a new purpose in life through her grandchildren and never desired for them to go a day without her along-side them. While many of her greatest traits remained present and celebrated until the bitter end, much of who she was became diminished over time as she was gripped by addiction at the young age of 25. Consequently, the last several years of her life marked a painstaking, heartbreaking, and harrowing journey as she and her family battled her disease. In an attempt to bring meaning to her life, our family shares her honest testimony and hopes to save another life and allow her journey to have not been in vain. Visitation will be Sunday, April 11, 2021 from 3:30pm until 4:30pm at Joiner-Anderson Funeral Home in Statesboro, with a service beginning at 4:30pm in the chapel. Interment will be private. Friends may sign the online register book at www.joineranderson.com. Joiner-Anderson Funeral Home & Crematory of Statesboro is in charge of the arrangements.
