Sondra Haygood

Sondra Marie Haygood

1934-2012 Sondra was born on November 14, 1934 in Fort Worth, Texas, but spent much of her childhood in Seattle, Washington. However, she returned to Texas and married Bill Haygood of Springtown, Texas on September 12, 1952; they recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary eating lobster in Maine.

Sondra had a unique talent for gardening and landscaping, and making a house into a home. She was in the antique business for much of her life and had a love for early American decorating. She greatly enjoyed escaping the Texas heat and spending summers at her second home in Manchester, Vermont.

She adored her family and loved spending time with them. She passed on November 13, 2012 and is survived by her husband Bill, her three children, Robert Haygood, Sheila Lee, and Barbara Haygood, four grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
