Just sprinkle my dust on the hillside

Where the wildflowers grow.

Where the wind and rain caress the earth

Where it gets the sunset's glow.



I want no fancy words or songs

Or tears shed when I go.

Just sprinkle my dust on the hillside

Where the wildflowers grow.

by Roberta Hayes



Mom was a connoissuer of sunrises, sunsets, meadowlark song, poetry, flowers, ice cream and spontaneous picnics. In her memory, take a moment to be amazed by a bit of nature.



She was born in Casper, Wyo., in 1926. She grew up in Shoshoni and Riverton, Wyo., and in the mid 1940s found her true home in the Rogue Valley. Her humorous and vivacious spirit is lovingly remembered by her husband, Calvin Hayes; son, Lou Hayes; daughter, Jackie Stewart; and extended family. She was preceded in death by her son, Greg Hayes; sisters, Geraldine Leach, Esther Holler and Rose Smith; and brother, Richard Briseno.



She passed away Nov. 19, 2008, at her home in Talent, Ore. Her family will hold private interment.
