Mrs. Ura Lee Hagood, aka “DIVA” age 82, of Barnwell, SC, was born on February 02, 1933 in Barnwell, South Carolina to the late Angus June Phoenix, Jr., and the late Pastenia Hayes Phoenix.  Our Heavenly Father called her home on Saturday, September 19, 2015 at the home of her daughter in Aiken, SC.

At an early age, she sought God’s direction and guidance, and joined the Brown Chapel Baptist Church in Barnwell, SC, where she sang in the Senior Choir. 

She attended the Butler School in Barnwell, South Carolina, and later moved to Florida, where she worked as a caregiver for over 50 years, in the West Palm Beach, FL area.

“DIVA”, as she was affectionately called by those who knew her, will be remembered for the love she had for her family and friends, her Collard Greens, and her classy dress style.

She was married to the love of her life, Willie James Hagood for 58 years, and in this union, they were blessed with two beautiful daughters.

Two sisters, Clarice Miller, and Juliette Phoenix, one brother, Carol June Phoenix, one brother in law, Javie Miller, one sister in law, Dorothy Jeanette Phoenix, maternal grandparents, Cecil and Isabella Hayes, paternal grandparents, Angus, Sr., and Julia Phoenix preceded her in death.

She leaves to cherish her memory, a loving and devoted husband, Willie James Hagood of Barnwell, SC;  two daughters, Evangelist Barbara (Gary) Hagood-Scott, and Blonice (Frantz Robinson) Legrand of Aiken, SC; eight grandchildren; eleven great grandchildren; one sister, Edna Mae (Nathaniel) Hicks of Barnwell, SC; one brother, Charles Lewis (Mildred) Phoenix of West Palm Beach, FL; five godchildren; one ex-sister in law, Edith Phoenix of West Palm Beach, FL; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and sympathizing friends.

Cousin, you will be missed by many who love you. Your warmth and kindness for others was that of a true Christian. I'll miss our talks and your letters. I'm glad that we talked twice within the last month. You'll be gone but not forgotten. Love you.
ANGLES aren't ours to keep, God allowed us to borrow them, then he calls them home to brighten his HEAVEN !

My condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. When our loved ones die, the pain of grief is sometimes unbearable. Our loving God Jehovah is aware of this and comforts us by means of his word the Bible. 1 Peter 5:7 says: While you throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you. Also Psalm 34:18, Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.
