Gwendolyn Higgins

August 23, 1939 ~ March 17, 2022 (age 82)


It is with sincere sadness that the Horton’s Funeral Home Family announces the earthly transition of Ms. Gwendolyn Higgins as she peacefully answered the Master's call on Thursday, March 17, 2022 in Hertford, North Carolina.

The heartbreaking task of planning the Life Remembering services for Gwendolyn have been finalized and will commence on Saturday, March 26, 2022 beginning with viewing and visitation at Horton’s Funeral Home in Hertford, NC between the hours of 5pm and 7pm. Ms. Higgins’ family will climax her life remembrance with a “Loving Farewell” Ceremony on Sunday, March 27, 2022 beginning at 2:30pm at First Baptist Missionary Church in Hertford, NC. 

Immediately following the formalities in the Sanctuary, Ms. Higgins earthen vessel along with her cherished family will be escorted to Cedarwood Cemetery in Hertford, NC for Committal Rites.

As hard as it will be for Gwendolyn loved ones to depart without her, God our Heavenly Father promised to give peace that will surpass all of our understanding even in the midst of grief and sorrow. The hymnologist said it best... when he put pen to parchment writing.... “We’ll understand it better all by and by.” 

The professionals at Horton’s Funeral Home and Cremations are accommodating each request and personal desire of the Higgins and connected families.
