Docia May Bagwell, of Weatherford, passed away Feb. 2, 2011. She was 89.
The youngest of 11 children born to Thomas and Sarah Littlefield, Docia was raised in West Texas and spent most of her adult life in Parker County, where she and her husband, Claude, raised four children. During the 1940s, Docia belonged to the select generation of women who worked in the defense factories during the war. Docia's tenure at Consolidated Aerospace in Fort Worth (now Lockheed) was a great source of pride for her.
She was a life-time member of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary where she and Claude enjoyed visiting with friends. Docia was a talented needle-worker and through the years, knitted or crocheted hundreds of scarves, booties, afghans and pot-holders for family and friends. She also enjoyed jigsaw puzzles and always had one laid out on a table.
