Our cherished and beloved daughter Hayden Johnson was taken from us suddenly on June 10. She is survived by her mother Julie McAleavey, step father Tom McAleavey , father Jay Johnson and step mother Alaiyo Bradshaw, her siblings Alberta and Jack McAleavey, her grandparents and many aunts, uncle and cousins.
Hayden had a fascinating and creative spirit. She was an accomplished writer and singer, a world traveler., a compassionate defender of human and animal rights, and a lover of the natural and supernatural world.
Her laughter, her hugs, her effervescence are with us always.
In her memory our family asks if you like to donate in her name to the Nature Conservancy.
In her honor we can all endeavor to live with a deeper appreciation and respect for each other and the mysteries of the universe.
-Because in Hayden’s words, “You never know. The world is not what you expect.”
We live and love with you, dear Hayden, in our hearts.
