March 20, 1936 - January 10, 2022
Heaven gained another angel on Monday, January 10th, 2022, when Barbara Milligan was called home to be with God. She passed away in her home in Ringgold, VA. She was 85 years old at the time of her passing. She was a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a friend, and overall a generous and kind person who would do anything for her family and friends. She was a joyful person who had a smile to share with everyone. She was born and raised in Germany, a daughter of the late, Bruno Herbst and the late Maria Roesser Herbst. She was a mother to four children with her first husband. After marrying her second husband, Charles Milligan, they lived in several different locations, including Nuremberg, Germany and Fort Lewis, Washington. She and her family eventually settled in Ringgold, VA, where she lived for the rest of her life. She worked at Tultex for 14 years until her retirement in 1999, after which she devoted her life to taking care of her children and grandchildren in the States. She always made sure everyone around her was well-fed and loved, taking care of her family in all the ways she knew how. She loved taking care of others, reading magazines, cooking, watching Judge Judy, and decorating her home with lights and candles. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Charles Milligan; and her brothers, Arthur Herbst and Erich Herbst. She is survived by her children, Edmund Braun, Ingrid ”Indy” Siegmann (Andy), Katja Milligan-Collie (Mark), and Hans-Jurgen Milligan (Amber); her grandchildren Delaney Collie, Christian Milligan, Jenny Siegmann, Jaime Siegmann, Daniel Siegmann, Birgut Braun, and Marcus Braun; and her brother Alias Herbst. To honor her wishes, a private service will be held at a later date. The family will receive friends at the residence of her daughter, Katja Milligan-Collie, 3436 Ringgold Church Rd., Ringgold, VA. Wrenn-Yeatts North Main Chapel will be respectfully serving the Milligan family.
