Jeanne was born the daughter of James and Jeanette (Anderson) Huigens on September 6, 1942 in Sioux City, Iowa.  Jeanne attended Bishop Heelan Catholic High School, graduating in 1960.  After graduation, she married the love of her life, Glenn Biggerstaff on January 7, 1961 in Sioux City.

For many years Jeanne was a homemaker, raising her three daughters.  Once her girls were grown, Jeanne became a breakfast manager at the McDonalds restaurant on Hamilton Boulevard, where she worked for 35 years.  During this time, she collected each and every happy meal toy, including some displays, which brought her much joy. 

Jeanne enjoyed many hobbies including sewing, quilting, baking and doing yardwork. Many of these skills she passed on to her daughters.  She was a member of the Siouxland Sampler Quilt Guild, winning many awards for her handiwork.  Jeanne made quilts for each niece and nephew upon their graduations and many other quilts for family and friends.  Jeanne was a lifelong member of St. Boniface parish. She was also an active Heelan alumni, celebrating many reunions and festivities with her classmates and dear friends throughout the years. She also enjoyed watching as her daughters and many grandchildren also attended and graduated from Heelan as well.

Jeanne is survived by her daughters, Tracy Bates of Sioux City, Terry (Ted) Tastad of Sioux City, and Julie (Craig) Guenther of Arvada, Colorado; brother, John (Carol) Huigens of Sioux City; sisters, Joanne (Brad) Blair of Sioux City and Jackie (Joe) Kinzey of Hinton; 11 grandchildren and 29 great-grandchildren.
