OBITUARY: Phil Ann Hayward


Phil Ann Hayward, born on June 27, 1953, spread her wings and departed from this world on May 19, 2024. She was a remarkable soul who touched the hearts of many with her kindness and grace.

Phil was a woman of many talents and passions. Her nature shone through in everything she did, whether it was creating crocheted blankets for seniors or managing her business, Senior Sitters, in California. Through her business, Phil dedicated herself to caring for the elderly, providing them with comfort and love in their final days. Her selflessness knew no bounds as she even opened up her own home to hospice patients, ensuring they received compassionate care till their last breath.

Beyond her professional endeavors, Phil found joy in the simpler things in life. She held a deep love for the Lord and cherished her role as a mother and grandmother more than anything else. Family was at the core of Phil’s being, and she poured her heart into creating a warm and loving environment for those around her.

In her leisure time, Phil enjoyed cruising the open waters and indulging in her favorite pastimes of watching westerns and “Survivor.” Her spirit for adventure and love for entertainment brought light to those lucky enough to share these moments with her.

Phil Ann Hayward will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.

There are no arrangements planned at this time.
