Alice Haak Haight, 83

Alice Haak Haight, 83, died on Aug. 10, 2017, in Ganges. She was born Dec. 31, 1933, in Cambridge, Mass.

Alice was kind, intelligent, generous, creative, loving and just the right amount competitive. She loved games and her friends but mostly loved spending time with family.

She is fondly remembered and profoundly missed by husband Dick; daughters, Tammy and Betsy and their husbands, Ross Sweetman and Steve Bloom; grandchildren, Amanda, Jill (Nate Lada), Alison (Jim Caroll) and Casey; great-grandson Graham; brother Avery Haak; nieces, Anna and Andrea and their families; along with many close friends and a pack of family dogs.

To honor her memory—the family tried to think of some things she would like everyone to do. So … please be kind, pick up trash, always carry a sweater, support the public library, learn something new every day, don't use scented products, but mostly ... be kind.

The family is going to gather to “Remember Alice” at The Old Schoolhouse, 131 Center St., Douglas, on Aug. 18, from 3 to 5 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to The Friends of the Saugatuck-Douglas District Library or The Saugatuck-Douglas History Center.

Arrangements are by the Dykstra Funeral Homes—Saugatuck Chapel.
