Marjorie Ann Hayes

Marjorie Ann Hayes (Margie) of New York, New York passed peacefully on Saturday April 6, 2019 following a brave battle with cancer. She is survived by, and will be greatly missed by, sister Catherine Hayes Farrell and nephew John Farrell, John’s wife Corinne and their children Guiliana, Connor and MacKenzie, of Brooklyn, New York; nephew Martin Hayes, his wife Santa and children Nelson and Zoe of Washington DC;nephew Jeremiah Hayes and his wife Ai and sons Kota and Taian and niece Mary Hayes Reade and her husband Derek and daughter Kate of Montreal Canada; nephew John Patrick Hayes and his wife Jodi of Coatesville Pennsylvania; niece Ann Hayes Pappas, her husband Stefan and their children Liam, Alex and Nina and niece Elizabeth Hayes and her fiancé Brandon Owens and their daughter Olivia of Boson Massachusetts.  She is preceded in death by her parents, James and Mary Hayes (both of whom emigrated from Cork County, Ireland to Manhattan) and by her older brothers Jeremiah (Jerry) Hayes and John Hayes. Margie will also be missed by many who were blessed by a long-term friendship with this very special lady.

Marjorie was born and raised in Manhattan on the upper west side and, true to the example of her older siblings, went on to get an education beyond high school by getting a nursing degree from the Benedictine School of Nursing in Kingston, New York. A number of years in her early career were spent in San Francisco, California but Margie returned to her roots to work in Manhattan. She later obtained her Bachelor of Science and her Masters in Hospital Administration and was a quality control supervisor for Visiting Nurses of New York for a number of years prior to retirement.

Margie was a consummate New Yorker, she loved attending plays and concerts and touring museums in the city.  And she loved the New York sports teams— the Yankees and the Knicks,in particular — and would definitely text her Boston nieces if the New York team had the upper hand in a game with Boston.

Margie also loved to travel and made friendships while cruising or touring that lasted long beyond the cruise or tour.She also loved spending time with her extended family helping them celebrate graduations, christenings, birthdays, and simple holidays.  And, as a friend, she was always ready to lend a helping hand or a shoulder to cry on when needed.  But most importantly, Margie was a child of God and a life-long Catholic who lived her life with love and respect for all humankind.

A Mass of Christian Burial and celebration of Margie’s life will be held on Friday, May 3, 2019 at 9:30 am at Saint Joseph’s Church of Yorkville, 408 East 87th Street, New York, New York 10128.  Internment of ashes will follow another day.  Contact the family for information on interment.
