Elizabeth Ann Haynes, 1934- 2016, and Edward L. Haynes, 1934-2017, longtime Simsbury residents. Elizabeth Ann (Joyce) Haynes passed away peacefully on December 11, 2016. Elizabeth was affectionately known as "Betty" and was born and raised in Simsbury. Betty was a graduate of Simsbury High School. While attending nursing school, Betty married her high school sweetheart, Edward L. Haynes. The happy couple had just enjoyed their 63rd wedding anniversary. Betty was a devout Catholic and a sweet loving mother who adored her husband and children. Aside from being a busy mom of eight, she also had a number of outstanding talents. Her gift of expression was evident in her glorious letters to family members over the years. She also mastered the art of invisible reweaving and her work was highly sought after from the finest tailors in every area she resided in. Betty made everyone feel loved and special and will be missed dearly. Besides her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren listed in Ed's obituary, she leaves a sister Maureen Eldredge, a brother Robert and his wife Maureen Joyce. She was predeceased by her brother James Joyce and her brother in law Paul Eldredge. Edward Haynes "Ed" passed away Saturday April 8, 2017. He was born in Canaan VT and raised in Simsbury. He was a gifted athlete, a TWO sports star on Simsbury High School's Baseball and Basketball teams. He led the varsity basketball team to a historic State Championship in 1952. He continued his athletic career at the University of Hartford where he played 3rd base. His exceptional skills caught the eye of the Baltimore Orioles who offered him a professional contract in 1953. Instead, Dad chose to marry his high school sweetheart "Betty", start a family, and a career at IBM. Together Eddie & Betty had 10 children (John and Emily died shortly after birth) whom they loved dearly. Dad supported his family as Systems Analyst Manager for IBM for 25 years before retiring to Florida. Dad loved the outdoors, was an avid fisherman, and outdoorsman. He loved to golf and bowl. He won many league championships over the years. He was also an avid Red Sox fan and followed them every summer as he vacationed at the family cottage in Maine on the New Meadows River. Dad coached All of his Sons and Daughters over the years and would give the shirt off of his back for his kids. He spent his retirement years in Ft. Myers, FL near to his sister who he held very dear. He continued to enjoy golf, walking, shelling, and spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Dad will be sorely missed by all who had the pleasure of crossing paths with this Great Man. Dad, all your kids will Love and Adore you forever. Betty and Ed are survived by their children; Cathy, Michael, David, Eddie, Debbie, Robert, Brian, and Julie along with 28 grandchildren, 29 great grandchildren, a brother Raymond and his wife Kay Haynes; and a brother in law George LaCava. He was predeceased by his sister Dorothea "Dolly" LaCava.
