Stacy Dawn Haynes passed away on her 54th birthday, July 17, 2012.  She was born in Graham, Texas, on July 17,1958 to Dewey and Joyce Meyers.  Stacy married her soul mate, Mike Haynes, in Andrews, Texas, in 1975. Mike and Stacy had an amazing love story and would have celebrated their 37th wedding anniversary on July 19, 2012. The couple moved to Eldorado, Texas, in 1981, where they made their home and raised two children, Mindy, born in1979, and Tanner, born in 1984.

 

The devoted mother loved being at home with her children in their early years, then found her second passion when she began working for the First National Bank of Eldorado in 1982.  Her gifts of working with people and crunching numbers came together as she progressed from teller to Vice President over a 30 - year career. Stacy also served as the secretary of the board of directors and as loan officer,and she was affectionately known to many as their “personal banker.”

 

Stacy was also very involved in the community that she loved.  She served as a member of the Eldorado City Council, Lion’s Club, Chamber of Commerce, and many other organizations throughout her years in Eldorado.  Nearest to Stacy’s heart was her membership and participation in the First Presbyterian Church of Eldorado. She was a faithful participant of the Wednesday night Bible study group, Sunday morning worship, and Christian Cooking.

 

Stacy is survived by her husband, Mike Haynes of Eldorado, Texas, and their two children – daughter, Mindy Sellers and husband, Tye Sellers of Midland, Texas; son, Tanner Haynes and wife Erin Haynes of Weatherford, Texas – and one granddaughter, Ailee Grace Haynes. Stacy is also survived by her parents – mother, Joyce Jackson of Andrews, Texas; father, Dewey Meyers and wife, Alice Meyers of Odessa, Texas; sister, Sherry Berry and husband, Bill Berry of Katy, Texas. She is preceded in death by her stepfather, Kenneth Jackson of Andrews, Texas.

 

Stacy’s battle with cancer only confirmed everything what friends and family already knew about her strong faith and character. Her family has shared that through her painful struggle, she never once complained, but instead reminded her family and friends to look to God and His daily blessings. Even through multiple rounds of chemo, Stacy fought to stay active in her daily life.  From going to work on days when everyone thought it impossible to traveling back and forth to Houston, Texas, for treatment, Stacy showed amazing perseverance and unwavering strength.
Though her departure from this life was much too soon, our hope remains in the One who holds her now in His embrace will some day welcome us home.
Services will be held Friday July 20 at 11:00 am at the 1st Presbyterian Church with burial following in Eldorado Cemetery.
