Regina “Jeanie” Rose Hays, 67, of Holly Pond, Alabama, passed away on December 30, 2021. Jeanie was born to Alton William and Rosemary Schaefer Sandlin on June 19, 1954, in Cullman County, Alabama.

Jeanie was widely known for her Christmas cookies. With a family recipe she would make hundreds of meticulously decorated cookies each season and enjoyed providing many families and friends with their own platter.

Jeanie had recently been making quilts and donating them to others undergoing cancer treatments as well as crafting and providing 500 handmade mask to Children’s Hospital.

Jeanie dedicated much of her life providing care to those she loved. With her servant’s heart, she deeply impacted the recipients of her care. Her grandchildren will forever know her endless love.

With her passing Jeanie leaves a legacy of kindness and compassion.

Jeannie had such a sweet, caring heart. She will be fondly remembered and sorely missed. We were in Nimble Thimbles together and I enjoyed her sweetness!
