Susan Glazebrook Hays was born January 26, 1924 to Uriah S. and Edith Clark Glazebrook in the Mays Chapel community of Marion County, KY. She was 89 years of age when she died at 8 p.m. on November 27, 2013 at The Village of Lebanon.
She was greeted at heaven's door by her parents and her two siblings, George William Glazebrook and Mary Dean Bradshaw.
She is survived by her husband of 71 years, Maurice T Hays; her three children, Lynda (Clyde) Tharp of Shelbyville, Ed (Pat) Hays of Danville and Janet (Kenn) Johnson of Mt. Sterling.She is also survived by six (6) grandchildren, Heather (Troy) Hood, Kyle (Jaime) Tharp, Julie (John) Gragg, Ben (Blake) Hays, Lindsay (Troy) Porcelli and Rory (Aaron) Gruler plus nine (9) great-grandchildren. Several nieces and nephews survive along with the many caregivers who came to love her as family because Susan made them feel that way.
Susan's career path was that of a loving wife, mother and friend to many in the Pleasant Run community where she and her husband lived their entire married life.She, being a faithful companion and housewife, assisted wherever needed on the farm and still found time to prepare delicious, bountiful meals for family as well as those helping her husband on the farm. As a lifelong disciple of Christ within the Methodist Church, her Christian values were reflected in all she said and did. When someone would ask her what she had been doing, her reply was often, "Oh, just doing around." But what she really was doing was setting an example for all of us. She showed how one was to live with faith even when things do not appear to be going as one would desire. She frequently demonstrated how one is to quickly offer unparalleled forgiveness when differences occur. She never failed to extend unconditional love to all with whom she came into contact. Her life will be celebrated into the future as her children, in-laws, grandchildren and great-grandchildren strive to embrace and live out her legacy in their lives and tell "remember when Mama Sue or SueSue" stories at family gatherings.
The funeral was held at 11 a.m. on Dec. 2, 2013 at Bosley Funeral Home in Lebanon, KY with Rev. Darren Gillespie, Rev. Sam Clark and Rev. Ken Jessee officiating. Interment was at Haysville Cemetery. Visitation was held between 4-8 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 1, 2013 at the funeral home.
