Eaddy Williams Hayes

1924 – 2011

 Palmetto Conservation Foundation was saddened to learn that Spartanburg, SC resident, Eaddy Williams Hayes, a longtime supporter and contributor to the organization had died on May 16, 2011.  Mrs. Hayes, an ardent conservationist, was an avid outdoors woman who enjoyed hiking, fly fishing, bird hunting, river rafting and many other sports.  In 1999, Mrs. Hayes was honored by Palmetto Conservation Foundation as the recipient of their annual BMW Conservation Award.

 In addition to PCF, Mrs. Hayes was a founding member of the Nature Conservancy of SC and was designated a Conservation Hero by that group.  She also was very well-known in Spartanburg for her many civic involvements and charitable acts.  Palmetto Conservation Foundation has lost a true friend and extends its deepest sympathy to Mrs. Hayes’ family and friends.
