AGE: 86 • Wilmington

Surrounded by her loving family, Grace Ferguson Hayman passed away peacefully on November 14, 2016 at the age of 86.

Grace was born and raised in the area of Wilmington known as Happy Valley, along the banks of the Brandywine River. After graduating from P.S. DuPont High School in 1948, she was employed by Atlas Powder Company for five years before starting her family. She later re-entered the workforce with Hercules Inc. as an executive assistant, where she retired after thirty-one years of service.

Grace was a member of Hercules Country Club and a parishioner of St. Helena's Roman Catholic Church for almost sixty years. She enjoyed painting, ceramics and sewing. Most of all, she loved to dance.

Grace is preceded in death by Walter, her loving husband of 58 years; her sisters, Frances Schumacher and Mary Baird; her brother, William; and her daughter-in-law, Virginia.

Grace is survived by her sister, Catherine Howell; her sons, William B. Hayman and Robert J. Hayman (Cathy); grandsons, Michael Hayman and James Hayman (Bridget); granddaughters, Laura Hayman, Erica Meme (Kevin) and Juliana O'Brien (Paul); as well as three great-grandchildren, Jonathan Meme, Sarah Meme and Adam Hayman.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 12:00pm on Monday, November 21, 2016 at St. Helena's Catholic Church, 602 Philadelphia Pike, Wilmington, DE 19809, where family and friends may visit beginning at 11:00am. Interment will follow in All Saints Cemetery.
