LaVerne Hayes-King, 60 of Hartford, crossed the threshold of Heaven on Tuesday, August 10, 2021, surrounded by her devoted family. A wonderful homecoming took place at the gates as she was greeted by her parents, Theodore & Betty Hayes, her big brother, Grayling Hayes and her in laws, Herman & Willie Rea King. Her grand parents, John William & Myrtle Embry, Roosevelt & Girldon Hayse and countless aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends were there to welcome her with open arms.
LaVerne married the love of her life (at last) in 2016. She and Jessie Dale King had 26 wonderful years having been together since 1995. LaVerne was so proud to be his wife and loved him with her whole heart. She only had one child, Crystal Dawn, who is nearly her twin. LaVerne was her hero, her biggest fan, and her best friend. Crystal & Jason, her husband, gave LaVerne 4 beautiful grandchildren: LaTasha, Allison, Daphne, and Isaac. LaVerne called LaTasha her Pumpkin, so the name, Mamaw Pumpkin is what LaVerne was called. Mamaw Pumpkin loved each of them “more than you will every know.” Her greatest joy was her great-granddaughter, Gracelin Rose (Gracie Lou). She had one wish, to take Gracie to the beach for the first time and thankfully God allowed that to happen.
Anyone who had the blessing of knowing LaVerne can tell you how much she loved to travel. Her niece, LeAnne and her family always took her to Florida. She loved each of LeAnne & Cowboy’s kids, teaching them meanness and making memories. She also got to see the many sights out west with her brothers, Grayling and Gilbert as well as her daughter and her family. Trips to the Smoky Mountains with friends and Cumberland Falls with cousin, Diana Taylor and family were also incredibly special to LaVerne.
LaVerne was the Patient Access Supervisor at Ohio County Health Care. Here she made so many friends that it would be impossible to name them all. But she had a special bond with Michelle Hickerson and the admitting department staff, especially her Super Shelby. They will cherish her memory and her presence will be missed by all.
She will also live on in the heart of her brother, Gilbert Hayes and his wife, Loretta. Sister in laws, Vickie Hayes, and Norma Burton. Nephews; Brandon, Cody and Scott Hayes, Terry, and Timmy Burton. Nieces; Michelle Filback, LeAnne Blacklock and Joyce Grisby. Nine great nieces and four great nephews. One uncle, Buddy Embry and Aunts Mary Jo Corley and Peggy Beasley and countless cousins and friends.
LaVerne leaves behind a message of a life well lived. That no one is promised another day. Love your family, live for the moments, and make sure you are ready to meet you maker. She will be waiting for each of those who she loved somewhere by the River of Life.
Friends and family may pay their respects, Sunday, Aug 15th from 5pm to 8 pm or on Monday, August 16th from 9am-2pm, at Bevil Brothers Funeral Home in Beaver Dam, KY. Funeral services will be held on Monday at 2pm with Bro. Troy Frady and Bro. Kenny Raymer officiating. Burial will follow the service at Sunnydale Cemetery.
