Obituary of Marilyn Hayes

Marilyn Rose Hayes, of Jacksonville, passed away on Tuesday, October 9, 2018, at Passavant Area Hospital in Jacksonville.  She was born in Jacksonville, the daughter of John and Lula Boes Cloninger.  Marilyn married Orval Eugene Hayes on November 17, 1963, in Winchester, and he preceded her in death on June 27, 2018.

            Marilyn is survived by three children, DeLinda (companion, Gary Byers) Garde, Jeannie (companion, Rex Ford) Hayes, and Michael Hayes, all of Jacksonville; three grandchildren, Amanda Garde and Katie (Dustin) Brutlag, both of Jacksonville, and Allison Rose (Kase) LaReau of Kentland, Indiana; three great-grandchildren, Abby Rose, Olivia Rose, and Owen, four sisters, Frances Nichols of Alton, Joyce (Myron) King of Liberty, Missouri, Marsha (John) Meyer of Jacksonville, and Diane (Jay) Abbott of Port Isabel, Texas, two brothers, Donald Cloninger of Brighton, and Ed (Wreatha) Cloninger of Wood River; and numerous nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her daughter-in-law, Tammy Hayes, three sisters, Charlotte Anders, Barbara Ervin, and Carolyn Wild, and two brothers, Robert Cloninger and James Cloninger.

            Marilyn retired after 35 years as the Dietary Manager at Jacksonville Developmental Center.  She then worked as The Early Years’ bus monitor for Jacksonville School District 117 until January of 2018.  Her job with the school district was very important to her because of her love for the children who rode the bus.  She also loved the St. Louis Cardinals, collecting cookie jars, Tiffany-style lamps, and serving her homemade egg noodles.  Marilyn was the type of person who would do anything for anyone.  She cherished her family and especially enjoyed special times with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

            A funeral service will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 13, 2018, at Williamson Funeral Home, with burial at Winchester City Cemetery.  The family will meet friends from 10 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. on Saturday at the funeral home.  Memorials are suggested to P.A.W.S.  Condolences may be left online at www.airsman-hires.com.
