Laurie Kay Bain Haynes

Laurie Kay Bain Haynes, was called up to live in the perfect place free from further pain, at the age of 57. She lost her battle with cancer on Tuesday, June 3, 2014, surrounded in love with her two children.

Laurie was raised in Kerens by her parents, Bub and Martha Bain. She graduated from Kerens High School and raised both of her children in Kerens as well. In college, she studied music and nursing, and was a charter member of the Texas A&M Kappa Kappa Gamma. Her last few years of life were spent in Dallas, where she made many friends that she cherished dearly and living there brought her great joy, although she never lost her small town roots.

Her passions were engaging with people, anyone and everyone. She had such a genuine big heart and effortlessly connected with every soul she encountered. She brought sunshine when she entered a room and had a laugh that was contagious. You felt blessed to have her in your life, because of her fire spirit and loving nature.

She was a woman of faith, and she lived her life devoted to her church where she shared her wonderful talent of playing the piano every Sunday. She has graced others with her piano playing for over 50 years.  She had an obvious ease with being a caretaker and loved her years as a nurse. She remembered every detail, and followed with love the connections that she did make. Sports were another passion of hers, following all of her players and teams, from T-ball to major leagues, basketball, football, and tennis … she could talk to you for hours about the Baylor Bears or the Texas Rangers.

Laurie is preceded in death by her father, Robert Allen “Bub” Bain.

Laurie is survived by her daughter, Mary Katherine Holt of Dallas; her son, Terry Haynes of New Orleans, Louisiana; her mother, Martha Bain; brother, Bobby Bain of Kerens; brother, Clay Bain of San Antonio;  aunt, Ann Whorton; aunt and uncle, Kay and Pierre Hjartberg; cousin, Kip Whorton; cousin,  Angela Whorton; cousin, Stan Hjartberg; cousin, Cathy Hjartberg, and cousin, Christina Hjartberg Tucker.

To celebrate the life of Laurie, a social gathering with the family will be held Sunday June 15, 2014, at 5 p.m. at Kerens Presbyterian Church, with a memorial service starting at 6 p.m. To honor Laurie the family is asking that memorials be made to the Presbyterian Church, 301 SE Third Street, Kerens, Texas 75144. If you feel obliged please bring a memory of her: a picture, a letter, written stories, anything that reminds you of her, as a gift to her children to honor Laurie’s life.
