Dorothy Ann Bigham, wife of Donald Bigham Sr., of Bigham’s Tax Service, Hwy 78, Ridgeville, SC, entered into the arms of her eternal savior early Monday morning March 20, 2017 at Roper Hospital Charleston, SC., after fighting a brave battle against lung cancer.

Ann was born April 12, 1944, daughter of Dorothy Moore Kirby Leon, and the late Dallas M. Kirby Sr. Ann loved her family and friends immensely. She truly enjoyed seeing her clients each year and getting to know each new client that ventured through their door.  Her smile would light up any room, and her compassion for others was undeniable. She also enjoyed walking her dog Coco, gardening, fishing, and family cookouts in their picnic shelter.

Ann is survived by her husband of fifty-five years, Donald B. Bigham Sr.; her mother, Dorothy M. Leon; siblings, Dallas M. Kirby Jr.(Paula), Katherine Vance (Cy), and Mary Wilson (Sam); children Donna Dordick (Craig), Donald Bigham Jr. (Susan), Kimberley Rumble (Alan), and Mark Bigham; eleven grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren. She will be forever missed by all who knew her.

Flowers may be sent to: Bigham’s Tax Service, 949 Hwy 78, Ridgeville, SC, 29472, or in lieu of flowers donations can be made to charity of your choice in her memory.
