NORMA M HAYWARD
Stanfordville-Norma M. Hayward passed peacefully following a brief illness on January 28, 2021 at her home in Stanfordville, New York. She was previously a long time resident of Latham, New York. Ever the planner, she composed her own obituary.
I have had a wonderful life, surrounded by a loving family and so many good friends. My beloved Carl and I were happily married for 47 years. We had two great children, Andrew and Janet. Andrew resides in Florida with my daughter-in-law, Sandra and my grandson, Buddy. Five years ago, I moved with my daughter to Stanfordville, New York and have loved our time living here.
It is my request that there be no viewing or service. In lieu of flowers, I wish donations to be made to the Stanford Fire Company #1 6096 Route 82 Stanfordville, NY 12581, the Stanford Rescue Squad 6096 Route 82 Stanfordville, NY 12581, the Stanford Free Library 6035 NY-82, Stanfordville, NY 12581 or Hudson Valley Hospice 374 Violet Ave, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601. All dedicated people who give so much of their time to help others.
I wish to thank my family for their love, my friends for many happy memories and God for always holding my hand.
