Carmelita F. Biggie, 88, formerly of Rosemont, a speech pathologist and active volunteer, died of heart failure Thursday, June 5, in a hospital in Albuquerque, N.M.
Mrs. Biggie worked as a speech pathologist at the Timothy School in Bryn Mawr from 1965 to 1973, but she was best known for her many volunteer activities, especially when a need was expressed by an individual or organization.
"Her response was always, 'How can we help?' " said her daughter, Sara Fanning.
For 35 years, she ran the annual art show for Daylesford Abbey, a Norbertine religious community in Paoli. She also started art shows at the Rosemont School of the Holy Child, the Academy of Notre Dame in Villanova, and the Philadelphia Country Club.
