Virginia Norene Hayes
December 29, 2020
I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of Norene. This is a sad and difficult time to lose a loved one and my heart aches for her immediate family.
As a child growing up, I spent many weekends on the farm with my Great Aunt Edith and Uncle Ollie. Since they were so close, this also meant I spent time with my cousins Norene, Larry, Cassandra and David. Norene always had a smile on her face and loved to cut up and have a good time. She was so kind and seemed like an older sister to me.
Our extended family was very close and we were always having holiday lunches, picnics, and ice cream socials. The adults would set up the food and visit while the children ran around playing outside. I cherish those memories.
I love you and will miss you Norene.
