Cypress, CA.

Lovingly wrote by Alice's family.

Our Little Indian, Alice Ruth Agan, passed away peacefully on May 20, 2021 in Cypress, CA at the loving home of her daughter, Teena Tomlinson, and son-in-law, Brian Tomlinson.

Alice was raised in Prague, OK, the daughter of Aldon B. Huggins and Ruth Crain Huggins. She was surrounded in love by per parents and nine siblings including Van, Harold, Jimmie, John, David, Sharlene, Wanda, Sharon, Ranelle. Her parents and Van, Harold, and Jimmie pre-deceased her.

On February 27, 1959 in Redondo Beach, CA Alice married Darrell Lee Agan. For over 25 years Alice and Darrell lived in Torrance, CA where they raised four children: Tawana, Babette, Teena and Mark. Darrell was transferred to Atlanta with Delta Airlines and he and Alice lived in Jonesboro, GA for several years before retiring and returning to Oklahoma, where they settled in Grove. Darrell died in 2002; for a brief time Alice moved to Idaho and returned again to Grove.

Alice was a proud citizen of the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma and displayed that pride throughout her home. True to Native custom, she was kind of heart and showed respect and acceptance to everyone she met.

Alice valued love over all else and wanted nothing more out of life than to "sit and visit" with her siblings, children and their families. She was fortunate to spend time with all of her children, and many of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, until her spirit left this earth.

She is survived by; daughter, Tawana Reeb and son-in-law, Jeff Reeb, Bloomsburg, PA; grandchildren Richard, James and Bryan; great-grandchildren, Xavier, Zander, Dean, and Nathaniel; daughter, Babette Fasolino and son-in-law, Joseph Fasolino, Staatsburg, NY; grandchildren, Alison, and son Joey; daughter, Teena Tomlinson and son-in-law, Brian Tomlinson, Cypress, CA; grandchildren, Sara Adam and Eric; great-granddaughter, Merriah Rayne; son, Mark Agan and daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Agan, Woodland Park, CO; grandchildren Brooke and Darian; great-grandchildren Destiny, Davina, Leyana and Ezra; brother in-law Richard Agan and his wife, Sue, Carterville, MO.

Alice loved to cook and always made sure she made your favorite dish when you stayed with her. Chicken and dumplings were enjoyed by many!  She was blessed with an extended family of friends in Oklahoma. Her family would like to thank the many caregivers who helped provided comfort and support to Mom in her final year. She appreciated every moment of help she received.

She will be buried in Joplin, MO with Darrell and his parents, Lola and Bill Agan.

Visitation will be from 5-7 p.m., Friday, June 11, 2021 at the Worley Luginbuel Funeral Home in Grove, OK.  Graveside services will be 10 a.m., Saturday, June 12, 2021 at Forest Park Cemetery in Joplin, MO with Chief Glenna Wallace speaking.  Friends are requested to meet at the cemetery.
