Madison Riley Higgins, 17, was a junior at West Linn High School. She died of injuries sustained in a Sunday, June 8, car accident in which she was a passenger. After prolonged attempts to save her life, Maddi was peacefully called home to heaven on June 9, 2014.
Maddi was born on January 22, 1997, to Mike and Carrie Higgins in Portland, Oregon. A loving and beautiful young woman, Maddi was beloved by a large circle of family and friends. A softball standout, Maddi was a fierce competitor and gifted athlete. Goal-oriented and motivated, this passionate power-house was exploring her college options. She hoped that her education, her love of the game, and her new-found love of surfing would collide!
Madison Riley Higgins will be deeply missed not only by her loving family but also by her many, many friends and by the softball community. As an organ donor, her final gift to the world was the donation of her heart, lungs, kidneys, liver and beautiful brown eyes.
