    Mrs. Biggers was my favorite guidance counseler at Davey Junior High. She was a very special lady with a big heart. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    Mrs Biggers had an influence on major part of my life in public school. I had her as a teacher and counselor. She was a great teacher and counselor. I was a typical “wild teenager” and she had great career suggestions I didn’t understand at the time my mother was so grateful for her guidance and discipline.

  5. Adelaida Santana Pellicier says:

    Rebecca, I am smiling as I think of the times you and I gathered on behalf of our children. How wonderful it was to be in your company helping our students to grow well and healthy while we laughed at their antics and hoped for their welfare and well-being. You loved them all and pushed them to do better. Thank you for your love, support, perseverance, and belief in them. Rest in peace, my friend and colleague, for you did God’s work well. Love, Addie(aka, Head)

    As the Dean of Women at Kent Roosevelt, I had MANY opportunities to speak with her!!!!!! She was always kind and wonderful. I will always have fond memories of her. What a special soul she was.
    Rest in Peace.

  7. Marvin L. Henderson says:

    Not having known Ms. Biggers personally, I knew her through the eyes of the people of the Southend as well as her family members. You shall know a tree by the fruit it bears. May she now find shade under a tree planted by a little old cabin near the tree of life. It’s not how long you live, rather how well you lived. We won’t see you again on this side but until we meet again!
