Marvis Suzette Hayward, 60, passed away at her home on June 9, 2020. Marvis was the second child born to the late Edith Elizabeth and Marvin Clifford Holland in Havre de Grace, Maryland. Her dad was hoping for a boy who would be his namesake but when the baby was a girl, she was named Marvis. Marvis was educated in the Havre de Grace public schools of Harford County. Upon graduation from high school she began working at Perry Point Veterans Administration Hospital in Perry Point, MD.

Her employment history also included Bata Shoe Company, Department of Transportation at the Coast Guard in Curtis Bay, Department of the Army and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in Baltimore, MD and Washington, D.C. Her employment with the United States Government totaled 38 years. On August 3, 1985 she married John H. Hayward and from that union came two children, Angela and Aaron.

Marvis enjoyed life. Her favorite activities included gardening, eating crabs, shopping, traveling and spending time with friends especially her “bestie” Suzette Greene. She loved her family and supported her children in all their endeavors. Marvis had a servant’s heart and showed kindness in everything she did. She went out of her way to serve others without expecting anything in return. She was a faithful member of St. Matthew A.U.M.P. church since childhood and served in various capacities including Usher Board Vice President and Treasurer, Women’s Day President and Vice President, Pastor’s Personal Stewart, Pastor’s Stewart Committee, Trustee Bees, and Church Clerk. Her love of Jesus Christ made her a woman of integrity. She was committed to her word and did everything with excellence.

She leaves to cherish her memory, her husband of 34 years, John, children, Angela and Aaron, three sisters, Jacqueline M. Holland of Mt. Rainier, MD, Pamela A. Baker of Cleveland Heights, Ohio, Maretta A. Holland of Aberdeen, Maryland, two brothers, Vickus Y. Holland (Sharon) of Aberdeen, MD, and Marrun C. Holland (Tina) of Joppa, MD, several nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and a host of friends.

To Mr. John Hayward, Aaron, Angela and family, Marvis was my co-worker. She was always a woman who reflected strength and confidence with a smile. Marvis' was an excellent co-worker because she was smart and knew job very well. She will be greatly missed. I pray the Lord Jesus Christ be your strength and comfort while you grieve. I hope that you find joy in knowing that you will see your beloved Marvis in heaven. God Bless you all, Wendy Houston.

I never had the chance to meet you but I can say that I met you through your kind and pleasant daughter, Angela. You had to have something to do with that. I also know you through my colleague, Jacqueline. We prayed much for you and we still believe that God answered our prayers because you are with Him now. Thy will be done. We saw the demonstration of love and family as your sister left the cares of the world to spend this time with you. Invaluable. I will continue to pray for the family. Hold on to God; He is faithful.
