Mrs. Mary Huddle Hayes Bagley, 81, who cared so completely, gave so generously, taught so gently and loved so deeply went to be with the Lord Saturday, November 5, 2011.

Mary had a servant's heart and was a generous supporter of many charitable causes including Meals-on-Wheels, St. Jude's Children's Hospital, Rescue the Animals, Love and Care Ministries, and her local church. She spent much of her time and energy until the last two years devoting herself to delivering Meals-on-Wheels. Mary loved her family, her animals, her friends, her church, and any and all babies. She was a fantastic cook and will be fondly remembered for her wonderful cakes and her sweet, uncomplaining spirit.

She is survived by her children Scott Hayes, Debbie Lashmett, Laura Chamblee, and Randy Hayes; the daughters of her heart, Charlotte Hayes and Charlene Hayes; eleven grandchildren; and numerous great-grandchildren who have been forever changed by her love, prayers, and influence.
