Mary Ann Hayward 1937 - 2015

Mary Ann Hayward passed away the 28th of December 2015 quietly in Tonganoxie, KS, surrounded by her three children. Mary Ann was born October 10, 1937 in Yates Center, KS, at home to Robert and Lillie (Watkins) Garr. She was the 6th of 10 children.
Mary Ann met the love of her life, Louis Carson Hayward in 1954 where she followed him in his military career through traveling. Her joy of traveling led to many trips with her husband in their motorhome during their retirement. Mary Ann enjoyed reading, which led to her love of researching her ancestry. As an accomplished quilter, family members enjoyed the many quilts she made them.
Mary Ann was preceded in death by her husband and her daughter, Shelli Stimach. Mary Ann is survived by her daughter, Debbie Smith (Blaine); 2 sons, Larry Hayward (Chelley), all of Tonganoxie and Roger Hayward (Megan) of McLouth; 3 sisters, Norma Keller, Alma Adcock and Ruth Hedden (Charles) and one brother, David Garr (Dottie); 9 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.
