Mrs. Blonnie Hayes Obituary

On Wednesday morning, July 12, 2023, an Angel of peace came quietly and called our loved one home. Blonnie Belle Cole Hayes was born October 23,1937 in Wake County to the late Rev. Theodore Roosevelt Cole and Vera Riggsbee Cole. Blonnie accepted Christ at an early age and attended White Oak Baptist church.

She received her formal education through the Wake County school system. She graduated from Berry O'Kelly Highschool. Blonnie was united in holy matrimony to the late Walter Hayes. At a young age she came back home to care for her elderly parents. Blonnie served as a head cook at the Port Hole restaurant in Chapel Hill for many years. She was an accomplished pianist for the "Gospel Heirs" out of Apex NC.

Blonnie was kind-hearted, loving, and generous. She was a devoted mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, and friend. She was very quiet and sweet but had the loudest impact on anyone she'd meet. She enjoyed baking her famous poundcakes, doing crossword puzzles, online shopping, and spoiling the ones she loved. One of her favorite sayings was "It's better to give than receive." We thank God for the fruitful life she lived.

She leaves to cherish her precious memories, a loving and devoted son Stanley Hayes; Six grandchildren: Nikolia, Shamica, Daquan, Jamir, Alaiyah, and Te' Airra Hayes; one sister: Mary Cole of Chapel Hill, NC; one nephew: Decatur Cole (Ireatha); One Great Nephew: Decatur Jr.; Four great-grandchildren: Skyla, Egypt, Kason, and Kannon; special family friends: Marsha Bynum of Chatham, NC, LaTonya Bynum of Chapel Hill, NC and Crystal Warren of Chapel Hill, NC.
