ORGANIZATIONS
Halloween parties to keep teens from vandalizing. She wore Irish relatives old dress as costume. Kids made birdhouses from scrap wood. Hayward read poetry at a black church in Springfield. Mr. Grady and Singleton sang at her father's 85th birthday. 50th anniversary of Woman's Club; had non-edible cake with 50 candles. Matron for Divernon and Auburn chapters of Eastern Star.
LOSS OF FARM
Sear's would not hire her after she had to give up farm. She was over 40 and their insurance was too high. So made a job in catering parties from her house.
