CLARA RUTH HAYMAN, 90, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother departed this life peacefully at home Monday, July 31. She was a talented painter and creative quilter. She had a steadfast faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and loved Him with her whole heart. Her faithfulness in prayer and devotion to the Lord inspired her children and grandchildren, and the seeds of faith she planted continue to grow. She truly had “no greater joy than this: to hear that [her] children are walking in the truth” (I John 3:4). The family expressed its appreciation for her caregivers, Rachael Williams, Kathy Marlow and Angie Foster, for their loving and steadfast attention, and also the staff of Amedisys Hospice, and in particular the nurses. She is preceded in death by her parents, Roy F. and Letha V. Boling; and brother, E. Harkey Boling. She is survived by her husband of 68 years, William P. Hayman; daughters, Kathy Elaine Lilinoe Walker, Marsha Ann Kearsarge Hayman and Anita Frances Boling (Mark); grandchildren, Justine V.C. Thompson (Randy), Jessica L. Brown (Paul) and Michael E. Boling (Regan); and great-grandsons, Cameron R. Thompson, Nathan R. Thompson and Benjamin E. Brown. In celebration of her life, the family received friends Saturday, August 5 at the home of Mark and Anita Boling. Arrangements by Bridges Funeral Home, 5430 Rutledge Pike, (865) 523-4999.
