Jane Huggins, 87

Tue, 04/10/2012 - 8:31pm

Jane C. Huggins, of Wakefield and Block Island, died peacefully at home on her birthday, April 6. She was the daughter of the late James and Grace Colgan of Providence, and the wife of the late Donald G. Huggins, her devoted husband of 62 years. She has three surviving sons, seven grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

She was a lifelong visitor to Block Island and a parishioner of St. Andrew Church. Jane loved to travel with Don and together they visited many places around the world, including Australia, Africa and Europe. They especially enjoyed island hopping in the Caribbean. Jane enjoyed the sun and the beach and for years spent many a summer day reading and gossiping with friends on Mansion Beach, her favorite. She loved to entertain and could serve a mean cheese and cracker plate, or chips and dip, accompanied by a glass of bourbon, with lots of ice!

Funeral services and internment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Block Island Medical Center or the Block Island Rescue Squad. For online condolences, please visit: www.henault-gallogly.com.
