Mary Hays passed away with family members present on February 27, 2018. She is preceded in death by her husband A.G. Hays, her daughter Linda Hays, her nephew Larry Schmidt and her parents Rudolf and Margaret Schmidt.
She is survived by her grandson Nathan Hays Metzger of Lawrence, Ks, her daughter Susan Hays and her life partner, Joe Brocato of Lenexa, Ks her brother Rudy and his wife Mary Margaret, her sister Madeline Benton, all of Raymore; nieces and nephews with spouses, Cindy and Jeff Smith of Belton, Kathy and Jon Doyle of Lee’s Summit and Robert and Ronda Schmidt of Belton.
At this time, the family is celebrating her life privately and no service is planned. Mary worked with Lederle in the early years but her best work was with her family. A loving daughter, wife, sister, mother, grandmother and best friend. Mary embodied true family values, and set an example for all those around her. Her quiet graceful way may be silenced now, but her legacy will remain forever.
So sorry for the loss of your mother. She was a very sweet and admired person. Another angel in heaven, no doubt.
