Sue Hale Hayes (Weymouth Funeral Home & Crematory)

Sue Hale Hayes, 65, passed away on Friday, May 10, 2024 in Hayes, VA, after a lengthy illness.

She was born and raised in downtown Newport News to Dorothy Lee and Peyton Hale, where its welcoming sidewalks and caring neighbors made a little girl feel special. That community upbringing made her appreciate close-knit families and groups. Sue developed a love of books and reading; collecting all genres, especially cookbooks. She even worked as the manager of a bookstore for some time. Reading introduced her to the internet where she found old friends and developed new ones through her compassionate and caring encouragement for each person.

Sue was preceded in death by her parents and beloved sister, Ann. She is survived by the love of her life, husband, Howard Hayes; two brothers; several nieces and nephews and many extended family members.

The family will receive friends from 5 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 18, 2024 at Weymouth Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made to the Abingdon Volunteer Fire Rescue Station, 3239 Providence Rd, Hayes, VA 23072.
