Susan Mary Hayward, of Deptford NJ, died on Sept. 29, 2015 of cancer.  She was 66.

Tonight my mother ended her battle with cancer. She fought it until the very end. Her journey ended comfortably and surrounded by loved ones. I am very lucky to have been able to take her on many adventures over the last several years. To California with wine tours, redwoods, and the Golden Gate. To Bermuda with her first cruise. To Disney World and Universal Studios with Harry Potter World and all the magic of The Magic Kingdom. I am also so fortunate that she was able to see me graduate.... as she always supported me in my pursuit and love of music. She was an amazing mother and friend. Thank you for everything Mom.

Love Always, Andrew Hayward
