Driggers, Sr. Mrs. Driggers attended Screven Baptist Church in Georgetown and happily worked as homemaker – always dutifully taking care of her family. She was a delightful and friendly lady who was deeply devoted to her family. Mrs. Driggers' children were her world and she found her life's satisfaction in taking care of them. She was a fabulous cook and loved to prepare meals for friends and family. Mrs. Driggers was avid in the outdoors and nature, often going camping and fishing with her friends and family. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend who will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. Mrs. Driggers lived simply, but was loved broadly.
The family would like to extend a special "thank-you" to Dr. W.E. Easterlin and the nurses and staff of Prince George Health Care Center - especially the Palmetto Unit – for the compassionate care shown to Mrs. Driggers in her times of need. Words are not enough to express the gratitude felt for these many acts of kindness.

Mrs. Driggers is preceded in death by her daughter, Millie Driggers Robertson; her grandson, John Rentz-Neely; her brother, William Lowder; and her sisters, Hazel Hancock and Dot Behl.
