Haynie, Eva - Easley  
Eva Haynie EASLEY - Eva Marie McCall Haynie, 51, of Easley, passed away Nov. 23. While the event was well-publicized in regional news reports, the devastating circumstances of how she was taken from life cannot begin to possibly overshadow the magnitude in which she lived it. A fireball of ceaseless energy, Eva was a teacher at Chastain Road Elementary school in Liberty. With nearly 20 years of teaching experience under her belt, she was battle hardened in the ways of the booger-flicking antics of the prepubescent. Nothing was off the table if it could keep her students engaged in learning. The job that defined her life, however, was at home. She was a fabulous mother of four young adults, her loyal cohorts. She was a drill sergeant, a party planning ninja, grand warden of the pool. A packing sorcerer, squeezing her four kids and a week's worth of camping gear into a Ford Mustang, redefining the concept of personal space. For Eva, life was theater, critically-acclaimed and full of glitz, a choose-your-own-adventure, an opportunity to make the most out of each day. She reveled in her children and their individual talents, interests and capabilities. She believed in them and the open road, and expected them to do the same. She held tight to her faith. In a world fraught with cynicism, she was the one laughing, leaning in to hear your story. She was always plotting an adventure, leaving room for one more. Everyone who knew her was better for having been in her orbit. And in that regard, there could have never, ever been enough time. Eva is survived by her four children, Rev. Erik Grayson, of Charleston, Amber Grayson (Anthony), of Jacksonville, Fla., Kathleen Grayson, of Rock Hill, and James Grayson and stepson Jared Haynie of Easley; her sister, Debbie McCall Davis (Chuck) and family, of Rock Hill; brother, Cliff Hayes (Becky), of Wilmington, N.C.; and her mother, June McCall, of Rock Hill. She is predeceased by her father Charlie Hayes and stepson Travis Haynie. Funeral Services will be held Saturday, Nov. 29 at St. Andrew United Methodist Church at 11 a.m., with burial immediately following at Robinson Memorial Gardens. Visitation will be held at Robinson Funeral Home in downtown Easley Friday, Nov. 28 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Memorials may be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, "JDRF", 26 Broadway, New York, NY, 10004 or by visiting their website at http://jdrf.org/get-involved/ways-to-donate/ . Condolences may be expressed online at www.robinsonfuneralhomes.com or in person at Robinson Funeral Home-Downtown, which is assisting the family.
