Maymia Lucille Haggard, 99, passed away quietly, with her daughter and son-in-law by her side, on Sunday, January 5, 2020 at Solace Hospice in Asheville, NC. She was born in August of 1920 in Cumberland County, TN, the first of 9 children born to Bert and Lottie Lewis. She lived in TN for her first 36 years.

Maymia attended Pleasant Hill Academy in TN (where she later met her husband, Dale Haggard on the dance floor) and attended Berea College in KY. After the end of WWII, Dale returned from the Navy and they were married in Dayton, OH. After more than a decade, they moved with their 3 children to Vandalia, OH, where Maymia lived for 55 years. Later, she moved to Franklin, NC and lived there with her daughter and son-in-law.

She was an extraordinary woman and a loving wife and mother whom loved her family, was kind, compassionate and generous to everyone. Her interests included music, folk dancing, gardening, cooking, sewing and needle work, and reading poetry.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Dale of 59 years; her parents; four sisters and two brothers. She is survived by her children, Bruce (Bobbie) of Hoschton, GA, Regina (John) of Stockbridge, GA and Caroline (Stan) of Franklin, NC; five grandchildren, Brett (Hal), Breane (Brian), Aaron (Joan), Andrew and Ian; five great grandchildren, Callie, Braydon, Ella Grace, Collin and Katherine; her sisters, Myrtle and Melva Sue both of TN and many nieces and nephews.

Dear Bruce, Regina, Caroline and families,

Praying for all of you during this sad time. So many wonderful memories of Pool Ave..... it was a great place to grow up. Your mom was such a gracious, talented and compassionate woman. Will never forget your beautiful backyard, her beautiful gardens and the corsages that she made for us for special occasions. Blessed to know her and all of you. May the Lord wrap his arms around all of you and give you peace at this time. May all of the special memories make you smile.
