Yvonne was a collector of crystal and found several beautiful pieces in Europe that she sent home. Most of all, she loved her family and when visiting with her, should would always ask about the grandkids and great grandkids and wanted to know what they were doing. She wanted to be kept up to date on everyone. Her parents, Ed and Vada Belle Wilemon; her husband, William H. Hayes; brother, Bobby Wilemon, and step-grandson, Geoff Magie preceded Yvonne in death.

A special thanks goes to the staff at the Veranda on the third floor who cared for her over the years. You know who you are, and I do not want to list names, as I do not want to leave anyone out.

Dear Sandra, Derenda and all of your family,
I was so sorry to hear about your mom. Although I wasn't around her much I remember her smile. Prayers and condolences to all of you. My mom sends her condolences also. The dinners at her house with your mom, step-dad, James and Nell was always a laughing moment and great time.

Your mother was a classic southern belle. It has been such an honor to know her over the last few years and to care for her. I loved her so much and I am certainly going to miss her sweet smile! I’m including a picture of her when Janice sent her a lap quilt she had crocheted. May God rest her beautiful soul and keep His arm around each of you during this time of sorrow. Bless you all!

My mother and Ms. Hayes would eat together nearly every day at the Veranda. I ate with both many times and I was always glad to eat with them, share stories and get some hugs. I will miss her and my mother lost a loved friend.
