Alice Haight Boykin, 75, a resident of the Washington area since 1941 who was active in the American Foreign Service Women's Association, died Saturday at Auburn Memorial Hospital in Auburn, N.Y., following a heart attack.
She lived in Silver Spring and was vacationing in Skaneateles, N.Y., when she was stricken.
Mrs. Boykin was born in Syracuse, N.Y., and grew up in Skaneateles. She graduated from Vassar College. In 1931, she married Samuel Darrington Boykin. The couple lived in Scarsdale, N.Y., until 1941, when they moved to Washington and Mr. Boykin joined the State Department.
Mrs. Boykin accompanied her husband to Cape Town, South Africa, where he was U.S. consul general for five years, and on inspection trips to several other countries, including India, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay.
She was a member of the Chevy Chase women's Club as well as of the American Foreign Service Women's Association.
In addition to her husband, of Silver Spring, survivors include a son, Hamilton, also of Silver Spring; a daughter, Allison Parsons of Rockville; a sister, Barbara Schreader of Skaneateles; and nine grandchildren.
The family suggest that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the DACOR Education and Welfare Foundation, 1718 H St. NW., Washington, D.C.
