Obituary

Betty L. ( Hall) Hayes, loving wife of the late Thomas F. Hayes passed away peacefully surrounded by friends and family on Sunday October 18th, at the age of eighty six.

Born in Medford, Betty was the daughter of the late Herbert and Louise (Stevens) Hall. Educated in New York in her early years, Betty was a graduate of Malden High School class of 1946. Following High School she attended Business School. After marrying the love of her life, Tom and Betty moved to Somerville where they remained for several years and then nestled in to the west side of the city. They had four wonderful children brought into to their lives to whom she was very attentive and devoted to. Summers were always a great time for family vacations, enjoying the salt water or travelling through the hills and mountains throughout the northeast.

Betty was self employed as a typesetter for over ten years. Betty was truly a woman of great faith. She was very involved in the church and always made religion a focal point of the family. A member of the” Sy Rosenthal Fan Club,” which was a charity organization, Betty would gather the neighborhood children and knit mittens and scarfs for underprivileged children. Along with a great devotion to charity work, Betty loved the neighborhood and all the children in it.

After her retirement Betty took up oil and water painting, to which she was exquisite. There was nothing Betty painted that was not phenomenal. Too say the least, Betty had a true knack and innate ability for capturing moments and putting them to canvas.

A very devout Catholic Betty was very active in St Barbara’s Church and all the activities. She was always the first to volunteer for anything that was needed, bake for the bazaar, assist anyone in need and do whatever she could to make this world a little better.

In addition to her husband, parents and husband Tom, Mary was predeceased by her sister Elaine V.Brackett and brothers Charles and Herbert B. Hall Jr.

Betty is lovingly survived by her children, Timothy M. “Zeke” of Woburn, Kevin “K.C.” and his wife Laurie of Shirley, Kathy L. Markis and her husband David of NH, and Mark T. Hayes of NY. As well as her cherished grand children David G. “D.J.” Markis,Jr., Zachary Hayes, and Kivin C. Hayes III. A Funeral will be held from the Lynch Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn, on Friday October 23rd at 10:15a.m., followed by a Funeral Mass in St. Barbara’s Church, 138 Cambridge Road, Woburn, at 11.
