Born February 28, 1927, in Anthony,
Kansas, to Charlotte Eugenia Smith Dennis and Paul
Henry Dennis, she was one of eight children. After
graduating from Wellington High School, she obtained
her degree from El Dorado Junior College. She
married James Edgar Liggett, Sr., who preceded her
in death. Together, they had six children: James
Edgar Liggett, Jr., Janet Leigh Casas, Ann Elizabeth
Hoffman, Ted Anthony Liggett, Lawrence Alan Liggett,

grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. After
devoting her life to lovingly raising her children,

served as a member of the board. She volunteered at

live performances of every variety, travel, reading,
progressive politics and championing the rights of

participant in community life. Cordy will be deeply
