OBITUARY

Hayley Lynn BOYD

Passed away on November 22, 2019

Hayley Lynn Boyd, 48, passed away in peace on November 22/2019 at Stony Plain hospital.

Surviving her is husband Andrew, children Matthew and Abbey followed by pets Elroy (dog), Marty, Frank and Beans. (cats).

Hayley was the youngest of 4 children to (pre deceased) Keith and Carol Haakenson.

Growing up on an acreage outside Beaumont, Hayley started her education in New Serepta later graduating from Holy Trinity High School in Edmonton (1988)

Hayley furthered her education at Red Deer College where she obtained her diploma in Rehabilitation Practitioner, while creating friendships that lasted a life time. (1993)

Hayley married Andrew in 1994 and after a short time in Edmonton they moved to the Edson area where her family grew. She continued working and adopting animals until the arrival of their first born Matthew (1995), and shortly after Abbey (1997). Hayley loved being a mother and she continued to challenge her ‘craftyness’ with numerous homemade outfits for the kids.

In 2000 the family relocated to the Edmonton area and Hayley continued her career working in group homes, creating lasting impressions on many lives. Busy as could be, she could be found renovating a house to put her special touch to create the perfect ‘home’ feeling. Her definition of a relaxing afternoon was painting a wall or tiling a bathroom.

In 2009 Hayley and family moved to an acreage in Parkland County, later moving to a home in Stony Plain where she worked as a case worker for “Family Support for Children with Disabilities”(FSCD), and would develop a special spot in her heart for each family and their pets (of course).

Hayley loved being a mother and was always the number one advocate for her children and could be found baking extravagant desserts, popping popcorn, restoring furniture, cheering on various sporting events, or offering a helping hand as a volunteer for the school and community committees.

Hayley always found peace and comfort through the love of family trips and sitting by a campfire with her friends and family for a wiener roast.

Her outlook on life of “it is what it is”, love for family, friends and pets will be greatly missed.

Hayley was a beautiful person inside and out. I had the wonderful opportunity to meet her and her family only 10 months ago when they hired me to support Hayley at home. She was so kind, independent and had such a vast amount of zest for her baking , gardening, furniture restoration, pets and crafts and art work. She was always thinking of others. I admire Hayley and her family and will miss her immensely. Unfortunately I am in BC this week. I am sending you all my love and best wishes at this time of loss.

I heard about Hayley’s passing just this afternoon, and too late to attend the service. This news saddens me so much. Hayley was our FSCD worker for a number of years and she was always such a wonderful and welcome part of our team. Hayley cared so much about our son and every meeting felt like seeing an old friend. She never made me feel rushed or unimportant. After hearing of her death I was pondering the number of lives she must have touched. I only saw her once a year, and she was just doing her job, and yet she still managed to have a positive impact on my life. How incredible is that? Imagine how the world would change if we each took the opportunity to make someone feel heard and cared for the way Hayley did. I can only imagine the impact she must have had on those who knew her personally and we’re privileged enough to spend more time with her. The world has lost a truly remarkable woman.

I wanted to extend my deepest condolences to hayleys family and all that knew her. She entered our family in 2010 as our first fscd worker and she will never be forgotten for her advocacy and love and generosity she extended to my family and two boys. I remember countless days in tears on the phone with her or breaking down at our visits and she always was there to comfort and make sure our family had the resources we needed. She was a treasure. Rest In Peace Hayley, much love!
