Claudine Josie Hayes, born September 6, 1927 in Crawley, WV, died February 19, 2022.
Claudine was an incredible, beautiful, God-loving and virtuous woman. Faithful wife, loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, loved by all. She always had so many stories to share and loved sharing them with so much detail and humor.
Claudine loved God and enjoyed singing his praises all her life. Even as recently as November, she was recorded singing hymns. She has also been part of a few gospel quartets over the years. One of his favorite activities was to gather in the living room with his musically talented family and sing songs and play music together. She also spent hours at the organ playing gospel hymns.
Claudine has worked in various accounting jobs over the years, but her biggest job was raising 4 children. With Pat, they raised a close-knit Christian family.
Claudine was predeceased by her loving husband and companion of 66 years, Pat Hayes, Jr. Claudine is the mother of Jerry, Trish (Danny), Scott (Lois) and Steve (Michelle). Grandmother of Tajia (Mark), Cheyenne, Scott Jr. (Sarah), Stephanie, Jennifer (Luke) and Andrea. His great-grandchildren are Taylor, Gavin, Xander, Devon, Brea, Braydon, Isla and Clara.
Claudine will be buried in the Florida National Cemetery alongside her husband and best friend Pat. Side by side, they will sleep while waiting for the final gathering. The meeting of all meetings.
There will be a celebration of life at a later date to be announced.
