Married: William Converse Haygood June 22, 1951 – April 3, 1985
Kathy and Bill Haygood were married in Tangiers when Bill was working for the State Department in Spain. They returned to the U.S. and settled in Wisconsin. In 1962, Kathy became head of the statistical unit of the Agricultural Economics Dept. of the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She retired in 1989 and moved to Vashon Island in 1998.
Kathy loved her new island community. She volunteered as a receptionist at the Vashon Senior Center and as a shift head at Granny’s Attic. Kathy gave generously of her time and also set up a foundation to help the Humanities Dept. of Vashon Island High School. She is survived by her son, William Carl Haygood of Torrington, CT. and her daughter, Martha (Haygood) Woodard, of Vashon Island.
The family will be forever grateful for the loving care shown to Kathy by the staff of Vashon Community Care Center.
