(Broyles) Shannon. Jean was a member of the Mullens United Methodist Church where she taught Sunday School and kept the nursery. She was an avid West Virginia Mountaineer fan, famed pie baker, and quick witted mother to many neighborhood kids in Mullens. She entertained her grandkids for hours with the card games War and Uno, during which she played to win (tink, tink)! She was a prayerful and devoted Christian who read her Bible daily. She was known for her compassion, generosity, humor, and ability to keep you on your toes. She was dearly loved, and will be deeply missed. In addition to her parents she is also preceded in death by her sister, Betty A. Jones; brothers-in-law, Jack Houck and Giles Josh Jones; and an infant daughter, Shannon Biggs. Those left to cherish her memory include her son, Charles Randall Biggs and his wife, Robin Keener of Fairlawn, VA; her grandchildren, Randi Biggs (Curtis Rollins), Loren Biggs (Adam Wells), and Chase Biggs (Tiffany Cozort); step grandson, Cody Keener (Meagan Bass); her great grandchildren, Chayton and Aya Rollins, Paul and Selah Biggs-Wells, and Dakotah and Levi Lester; and her sister, Mary Lou Houck of Tallahassee, FL. The celebration of Boo's life will be 12 Noon, Wednesday, February 26, 2020 at the Mullens United Methodist Church, Mullens with Pastor Rick Duncan officiating. Burial will follow in Resthaven Memorial Park, Princeton. Friends may call one hour prior to services Wednesday at the church. Family and friends will serve as pallbearers. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations of sympathy be made to the Mullens United Methodist Church, 118 Guyandotte Avenue Mullens, WV 25882.
