Her husband, Joseph H. Rigby, Jr. and daughter Charmanne Rigby Davies predeceased her in 1977 and 2018 respectively.

Following her husband’s retirement from the Air Force and the family’s return to Mobile in 1972, Arliegh began a successful business career as a credit manager with D.H. Holmes Department Store and its successor, Dillard’s. Arliegh was an active member of Spring Hill Baptist Church and both taught and participated in its Sunday School program.
