Leonard Wood, MO; and Allie Heck (Ron) of Alexandria. Higdon was born in Fredericktown, to Claudia Prudence Cusick and Thomas Hershel Willett.

      When her parents relocated, she lived with her aunt and uncle, Mary and Col. Everett Mudd, so she could finish school there. She was blessed to be a part of two loving families, with a total of 20 siblings.

      She will be reunited in heaven with her husband of 52 years, Cecil J. Higdon; her parents; and siblings Dorothy Blandford, Margie Johnston, Frances Hamilton, Mary Blandford, Betty Ann Barber, John W. "Jack" Willett, James Edward Willett, Joseph Bertrum "J.B." Willett, Xavier Russell Willett, Thomas Hershel Willett Jr., Sidney Mudd, Everett Mudd Jr. and Forrest Mudd.

      Higdon was a devoted Catholic and a 60-year member of St. Augustine Church in Lebanon. Alice and Cecil's home was always open to family and friends, especially their children's friends. She was known and loved for her kindness, generosity, hospitality and her incredible cooking - especially her fried chicken. There was always enough for company and a sample to send next door to her brother Charlie, who loved to reciprocate with his own culinary delights. Her 13 grandchildren will forever remember Christmases on Spalding Avenue, a snack drawer that was never empty, hiding in her laundry chute, jumping on the mattresses she kept so that everyone would have a bed, her contagious smile, and the joy that family gatherings brought her. They will remember how she loved her flower gardens and feeding the birds. Her four great-grandchildren may not have so many memories of this remarkable woman, but we will delight in telling them about her as they grow up.

      Additionally, she is survived by siblings, Juanita Lewis of Mackville, Charlie Willett of Lexington, Shirley Woods and Josephine Adams of Louisville, Juanita Reed of Springfield, Wahseka Luckett of Bardstown, and Arvie Mudd of Harrodsburg.

      He was born and raised on the family farm on Murray's Run Road. He knew a happy childhood of family, hard work and love. He played football at OKH for Red Graham and was a graduate of Western Kentucky University, member of Alpha Gamma Rho and he served in the Vietnam War 1970 – 1971.His great reverence and respect for nature is legendary. He knew trees and animal tracks and wild flowers and weeds. He was a man of the earth, who loved all seasons and sun as well as rain.

      He disliked lawyers, the government, dishonesty, political correctness, snakes, medication and bullies but the things he loved and respected far out-weighed what he did not like.

      At 65, he took up a new love, Kentucky Thoroughbreds, which he embraced with a passion – like everything he did. With a firm handshake and a timeless smile, he welcomed every stranger as an old friend and every old friend as family. Always fiercely patriotic, and sometimes maddeningly stubborn, his warm spirit, work ethic and unassuming gentle ways inspired all who knew him. He always said what was on his mind - sometimes honest to a fault.

      William Sympson lived simply but richly.

      His grandfather, Reuben Sympson and his father, Reuben Siebert Sympson, preceded him in death.

      He is survived by three children, William Sympson, Jr. (Heather) of Lexington, Stephanie Wimsett (Greg) of New Haven and Eama (Stacey) Sympson of Woodstock, Ga.; "adopted son" Bill Bartley; eight grandchildren, Emma, Bailey, Seth, Isaac, Ella, Dominic Sympson and Ryan and Olivia Wimsett.
