Mrs. Haygood was born May 5, 1935 in San Augustine County to the late William Henry and Tassie Alice (Walton) Womack, and went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, June 3, 2019 in a Lufkin hospital.
Alice was a kind, loving person to everyone she met. She was selfless and would lend a helping hand to any neighbor in need. No matter where she lived or what the circumstances, Mom always managed to make the old house into a loving home. She was a mother to every child in every neighborhood she lived in and no child ever went hungry or without. Her homemade biscuits, fried chicken and pies were loved by everyone who had the pleasure of eating them. She was a self-made seamstress and made many of her own and her children’s clothing, quilts, curtains and other homemade crafts. No rags went unused because she skillfully turned them into rag rugs which adorned her home and those she gifted or sold them to. Above all else Mom was love.
Survivors include sons and daughters-in-law, O.T. Jr., and Crystal Haygood of Huntington, J.T. and Connie Haygood of Huntington; daughters and sons-in-law, Joy and Al Soape of Huntington, Sally Floyd of Lufkin, Patsy Haygood and Dale Donnell of San Augustine and Wanda and Joe Allen of Huntington, 15 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren and 18 great-great grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
