MONTPELIER - Ruth E (Norman) Hayes passed away in her home on July 31, 2020 after a long illness surrounded by her dear friend, Robert C Richardson and his husband Charles M Murray of Cornwall, PA. She was born in Berlin, Vt. the seventh of nine children of Theodore and Mattie (Cassidy) Norman on October 24, 1920. She received her education in Northfield and one week shy of her 19th birthday she married the love of her life Jack Hayes. They enjoyed many happy years of marriage until his death in 1975.

In addition to Robert Richardson and Charles Murray she is survived by her brother Delmar Norman, formerly of Montpelier, and many nieces and nephews.

Ruth was proud to work for Vermont National Life from which she retired after twenty-five years of service allowing her time to enjoy her home, garden, church and community.

Ruth was a faith filled Christian and an active member of St. Augustine Church, Montpelier where she was a Eucharistic minister, parish visitor and involved in the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. She was a dedicated member of Legion of Mary and the Catholic Daughters. Ruth received numerous awards and letters of commendation for her involvement of volunteering whether it be for her church, or her many years of volunteer service at local nursing homes, at the Central Vermont Medical Center and a guide at the State House.

A graveside service at Green Mount Cemetery, Montpelier will be conducted on Wednesday, August 5th at 11:00 a.m. with Deacon Regis Cummings of St. Augustine Church officiating. Friends are invited. Social distancing will be observed, and all are asked to wear a mask. A Memorial Mass will be scheduled at a
later date.

With heartful thanks and deep appreciation to the staff of Central Vermont Home Health & Hospice for their compassionate care, contributions in Ruth’s memory may be directed to them at 600 Granger Rd. Barre, VT 05641.

I worked with Ruth many years ago at National Life. We would walk home from work together. Her husband, Jack, was just as nice as Ruth & I remember their spaniel, Rusty, was just what you'd expect loveable & spoiled! I've not seen Ruth for several years & am sad to think she had been ill the last of her life. I'm sad to think I thought of her & thought about trying to contact her but never did. But I know she has found Jack & Rusty waiting for her, & may her family & friends find peace in knowing this too.
