Lois W. Hayman – Burlington

Lois W. Hayman, 87, died peacefully on Friday, April 3, 2015, in the Starr Farm Nursing Center after a slow decline in her health. Lois spent her life on the Eastern Shore of Maryland until her move to Vermont in June 2007 to be closer to her children and grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband, Charles Hayman, in 2006. Among Lois’ local survivors is a daughter, Cindy Hayman and husband, Bill Pence, of Charlotte; a grandchild, Jonathan Pence and his wife, Leah, of South Burlington; and a great-grandchild, Simone Pence of South Burlington. Lois will be remembered for her devotion to her children and grandchildren. We felt very lucky to have her with us in Vermont during the last few years of her life. Despite her failing health, she remained our mother and grandmother, always showing interest in our lives and our happiness. She will be missed. The family would like to thank Penny St. Cyr, her friend and caregiver, for all the support and love she provided Lois in her final years. At Lois’s request, there will be no funeral service but the family will gather in Maryland at a later date for a small graveside ceremony.
