Sandi has just started at Haywards Funeral Service and brings her office administration and organizational skills to the company. After spending 20 years in the publishing business she wanted to try something different where she could make a difference in helping people compassionately.  

When Sandi is not helping Patrick at Haywards Funeral Service she can be found walking her dog or out sailing around the beautiful Gulf Islands with her two young daughters.

The best part of working at Haywards Funeral Service is the satisfaction of knowing that we are helping to ease the burden of families when they are going through a difficult time in their lives.

Immediate Need

If you have immediate need of our services, we're available for you 24 hours a day.

Obituaries & Tributes

It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.

Pre-Arrangement

Dying is one of the few events in life that's certain to occur, yet one we rarely plan for. Should we spend more time preparing for a two week vacation than we do our last days on Earth?
