Born January 17th, 1939 in Martinez, CA to the late Lurline Hayden Kinsman and Guy Hayden, she spent most of her adult life as the director of medical records in Garberville and then Ukiah, CA. If she wasn’t at the hospital she could be find passing as much time as possible in the water, teaching swimming lessons, demonstrating to her grandchildren synchronized swimming or simply posing gracefully lakeside in her swimwear, always glamorous. She had a strong passion for gardening, especially fruit and vegetables to add to the lavish meals and baked goods always ready in her kitchen. From S-cookies and apple pie to perfectly golden-brown pancakes, any sweet tooth could be quickly cured at Grandma’s house. She also loved classical music, singing with the local choir and dancing to any tune.
