Grace Hayes Greene, 93, of Brookshire Road, Boone, passed away on February 17, 2024, at the Foley Center. Grace was born on May 18, 1930, in Boone to Thomas B. and Blanche Williams Hayes. She was a homemaker and enjoyed being a wife and mother. She loved being outdoors and always had beautiful flower and vegetable gardens. Grace liked feeding and watching the birds, especially the hummingbirds. She is well known for the beautiful crocheted treasures that she shared with family and friends during her 80 years of crocheting. Her favorite color was evident to everyone with her purple outfits and decorations. Her quick wit, determination, and warm smile will always be remembered.
