Jeanne Reed Hayner

March 17, 1944 — October 30, 2023


Jeanne Reed Hayner (79), of Layton, Utah, passed away on October 30, 2023 at the Holy Cross Hospital in Layton, after an extended illness. She was born March 17, 1944, in Ogden, Utah, a daughter of Eugene M. and Annie Blanche Adams Reed.


She attended Layton Elementary School, and graduated from Davis High School, Class of ’62. She studied at Utah State University in Logan, Utah.


Jeanne married Marion F. “Buster” Hayner April 17, 1983. He was born June 11, 1945, a son of Irving and Maggie Hayner of Karnack, Texas. Buster passed away unexpectedly October 28, 2004.


During her work career at I.R.S. and Hill Air Force Base, Jeanne made many friends. She was adept at bookkeeping and computer skills. She was known to be knowledgeable, dependable, and efficient; but, most of all, she was loved for her warm and caring personality. She was extremely organized in everything she did.


Jeanne had a sharp wit and quick sense of humor. Known for her enduring laugh and positive attitude, Jeanne was always a ray of sunshine.  Anyone who needed empathy or advice could count on Jeanne. She was always there for her nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends.


She excelled at cooking and was an excellent homemaker. Jeanne thoroughly enjoyed entertaining her family and friends in her attractive home.


When her family or friends were ill, she appeared at their doors with delicious, hot, homemade meals, with words of cheer and encouragement.


Jeanne always stood for the right, and had undying loyalty to her family and friends


Jeanne inherited her grandma, Annie Laurie, and grandpa, Hyrum Adam’s beautiful home and rock garden. It has been a Layton landmark at 719 East Gentile Street since 1920. Her mother and dad owned and maintained the home and garden from 1950 to the 1990’s, and then, Jeanne carried on with the tradition.


She spent countless hours planting, weeding, and watering the garden for the past 60 years, up until her recent illness.


This beautiful garden with hills and pathways of vivid colors, along with the lily pond, wishing well, and rock fireplace, have brought countless hours of pleasure to our community for the past 100 years.


In addition to her love for gardening and nature, Jeanne had a great love for animals, especially dogs and cats. She has adored them for her entire life.


Those who loved Jeanne can visualize her arrival at the Rainbow Bridge, greeted by all her pets who have gone before her, such as Jacque, the little gray poodle: Nicky, the Pomeranian; her cocker spaniels, Gator, Ally, and Teddy; Gus, and Aussie Bubba.


Jeanne was preceded in death by her husband, Buster Hayner; her mother and dad; and her sister, Joan Reed Hayden.


She is survived by her nephews, Brett Hayden of Layton; Jeff Hayden of American Fork; Kelly (Ami) Hayden of Fort Worth, Texas; Cody Gronau of Layton; nieces, Rachelle and Navy Hayden of American Fork; and Sophia Frederick of Ogden, Utah.
