On Aug. 10, Stacy Haynes (née Smith) of Reisterstown at 49. Born in Randallstown, she attended Randallstown High School and West Virginia University, where she studied English. While in college she worked as a hostess at Hungry Jose’s Restaurant where she met and fell in love with her future husband, Bill. His presence in the kitchen is what made her love going to work, and began her love of Mexican food. They were married in 1996. She spent her whole career in the insurance industry, beginning at Maryland Insurance Group, then Zurich Insurance, Farmers Insurance Group and finally Travelers, where she would remain for 15 years. She had many interests including her dogs Rex and Maggie, who gave her so much comfort and love and were always by her side. She also loved the beach, traveling, books, Netflix and shopping. One of her greatest loves was being with her family and friends, doing anything as long as they were together. Most of all, she simply loved making people happy, even if all it took was a kind word or her smile. She always hugged her doctors, nurses and even other patients. She was a member of the Alpha Xi Delta sorority, her children’s PTA and the Sarcoma Sunflower Brigade where she was creating a Maryland chapter. Her greatest priority and love was her family and friends, and she would want to be remembered as a person who could make everyone smile. She is survived by husband Bill; children Zachary and Zoe; parents Frank and Rhoda Smith; brother Michael Smith; sisters-in-law Lisa and Chris Kee and Heather and Joseph O’Malley; nieces and nephews Gage, Chloe, Carter and Ava Smith and Nicole, Gillian and Christopher Kee; and father-in-law Ronald and Pam Haynes. She was predeceased by parents-in-law Maureen and Donald Sajecki.
