Memories Timeline


  1. So very sorry for your loss, May Hayley rest in peace and may your family find peace knowing she is no longer in pain. Love you all. She was a wonderful person.
    Mike and Cindy (Roberts) Moranec and family.

  2. I remember the first time I heard Hayley sing. It was in Mrs. Dyers choir class at Arthur Hill and she sounded just like a beautiful bird. It always gave me goose bumps whenever she would sing. I have been following her on facebook and sending prayers to her and was greatly saddened when I heard yesterday that she was gone. She fought so hard. I know she will be greatly missed but the Lord just got another beautiful angel. She is no longer in pain. To her family I am so very sorry for your loss. I will not be able to attend the funeral but I will be thinking of you.

  3. The depth of sadness that I feel is overwhelming. Hayley, you made me laugh for 37 years. As my longest life long friend, I can assure you, you will never be forgotten. RIP my sweet friend.

  4. I am so sad to hear this news. It was such an honor to stand by Hayley in Jazz Choir and I will never forget when we used to perform she would always crack me up so I wasn’t so nervous. I will never forget her kindness. Charee M. DeShone Clark

  5. I’m so sorry about Hayley – this really hits home with me as I had a stage zero breast cancer diagnosis last year at age 51 and felt so blessed that it was caught and treated so early. It’s confusing why God would call her home so soon, but maybe he needed another angel. I will make a donation to the American Cancer Society in her honor, and to help those who are still with us. My thoughts are with the family with deepest sympathy.

  6. We are sorry to hear of the passing of Hayley. We have met on several family occasions. I know when we would meet she was always happy and smiling. I know she will be missed. This reminds me of an Irish poem, which I will share here:

    Do not stand at my grave and weepDo not stand at my grave and weep,
    I am not there… I do not sleep.
    I am the thousand winds that blow…
    I am the diamond glints on snow…
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain…
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you waken in the morning’s hush,
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of gentle birds in circling flight…
    I am the soft star that shines at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry—
    I am not there… I did not die.

    Our thoughts and prayers with the family at this time of sorrow.

  7. Hayley, we came to be friends through our mutual love of music and performance. It was my honor to perform next to you and to be your friend. I look forward to the day we can sing together again. In the meantime, keep smiling down on us all. We will think of you often and you will be sorely missed. Love and peace to your family.

  8. Anne, Liat, Timothy, Samantha, and Teagann: we wanted to convey our deepest sympathy.

    I played baritone in the Wind Ensemble with Liat and Hayley 1980-1981; very much enjoyed the 1981 World’s Fair Trip. I have many fond memories of Hayley, Liat, Llyode and the Wind Ensemble. My wife and I were blessed to have Hayley sing “Always and Forever” (and Llyode as organist) at our Wedding at Countryside Church in 1987. Hayley’s words resonated as we remain happily married 29 years later and have been blessed with 3 wonderful children 🙂

    We have lived in PA for 16 years and was I unaware of Hayley’s illness. My parents (still in Saginaw) saw the announcement yesterday and called to inform me. I happened to run into Hayley a couple of years ago while my father was at Convenant Hospital and we had a great conversation. She was proud of her children/family. My regret is that I wish we would have stayed in closer contact over the years.

    Our deepest sympathy,

  9. Haley was a kind brave woman as her actions showed. I only knew her for a year or so in the CLB, but grew to be deeply concerned for her at the onset of her disease. God bless her and her family for the work they have blessed this community with.
