Shirley Jean Hayes, 79 of Lake View, South Carolina was the daughter of the late Will and Lila Brigman. She was born on July 7, 1938 and quietly departed this life, entering Heaven’s gates on Wednesday, February 7, 2018.
An adoring mother and friend to many, Shirley enjoyed shopping, gardening, spending time with her family and friends, traveling and passing on family fables. She loved beautiful hats and owned an extensive collection of such. Shirley attended Columbus High School, graduating salutatorian of her class. Over the years, she devoted much of her time and energy as a caregiver to family members and special friends.
Shirley had an unwavering faith in God and was an active member of Fork Chapel Missionary Baptist Church. She had a beautiful voice. On Sunday mornings she could be found in her kitchen drinking coffee before church, singing along with her favorite gospel radio station. For many years she served as a Trustee and the Financial Secretary, but she was most proud of serving on the Missionary Board. Her Christian life was as beautiful as the songs that she loved so well, and her influence will forever remain in the lives of all who knew her.
Shirley was preceded in death by her husband, Burnice Hayes and all of fifteen of her brothers and sisters.
Shirley’s beautiful life will forever be cherished in the lives of her family. She is survived by her "four boys" Burnice “Grant” Hayes of Greenville, NC, Derrick (Melissa) Hayes of Fairfax, VA, Corey (Pamela) Hayes of Columbia, SC, Hendrix Hayes of Charlotte, NC; three grand-daughters: Shakoria 'Boot' Hayes of Newberry, SC, Taryn 'Ladybug' Hayes of Richmond, VA, Lauren 'Cupcake' Hayes of Columbia, SC; one great grand-daughter: Kaylee 'Butterball' of Newberry, SC and a host of very special nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
