Obituary of Dawn Kay Hayes

Dawn Kay Hayes, 60, wife of Raymond Hayes of Versailles, Kentucky, passed away Thursday, March 24, 2022, surrounded by family and friends, in Lexington following a 16-year long battle with Breast Cancer. She was born and grew up in Dowagiac, Michigan to Jerie Van Fossen Christensen and the late Verne Christensen on September 1, 1961. For over 30-years, Dawn worked in several positions throughout the Medical Field; most recently for various hospitals across the United States as a Remote ER Medical Coder for Himagine Solutions. She dedicated most of her free time supporting Youth Athletics. For many years she coached youth soccer in both Michigan and Kentucky. Dawn’s real passion though was supporting the Youth of Kentucky competing in both Cross Country and Track & Field. She served as “Team Mom” for Lexington Christian Academy’s (LCA) Cross Country and Track & Field programs for several years. Despite her illness, she continuously traveled all across Kentucky and the Country cheering on the athletes of LCA, Kentucky and other states while also assisting families new to the sport. In addition to her LCA “Team Mom” role, she was a fixture at the KTCCCA Cross Country Meet of Champions for many years running their awards table. Dawn was also a big NASCAR fan, traveling to tracks across the country to enjoy both the racing and the communities that called the tracks home. In addition to her husband and mother, she will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Kendall Hayes, MI; sons, Joshua Jerz, MI and Connor Hayes, Versailles; sisters, Robin (Bryan) Sandberg and Cherie (Donald) Anglemyer, both of MI. On Sunday, April 10, 2022 a Celebration of Life will be held from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM at Clark Legacy Center, Brannon Crossing. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Susan G. Komen Foundation
