Mary Alice Baldwin Bauguess, 99, passed away Tuesday, February 6, 2024, at home.  She was born May 24, 1924, in Newhall, WV, the daughter of the late David Preston Baldwin and Jennie Agnes Brewster Baldwin.  She was a member of First Baptist Church of King.  She retired from Hanes Hosiery after many years of service.  She was a loving sister, mother, grandmother, and aunt.  She enjoyed baking cakes and quilting before her eyesight began to fail. She loved the adventure of travel (Italy, Grand Cayman, Bahamas, Hawaii, Las Vegas, New York City).  The most important facet of her life was her faithful, dedicated walk with the Lord, along with the love of spending time with family and friends.

She is survived by her daughter, Tonya Howell, and husband, David (King, NC); two grandchildren, Garrett Howell and Jenna Howell (King, NC); her three sisters, Rebecca Muncy (Argillite, KY), Bernice Gillespie (Elkin, NC), and Lucille Weaver (Winston-Salem, NC); numerous nieces, nephews & cousins along with a close family member and dear friend, Anne Pike (Grand Cayman).
