Sandra Lynn Ruark, 69, of Toledo, Ore., died May 1, 2010 at her home.

She was born Oct. 10, 1940, to Marine Corps Lt. Col. Jack Franklin Warner and Gwendolyn Love Warner in Quantico, Va. She grew up in Coronado, Calif. After graduation from high school, she married Clyde "Bud" Hayes in 1958. They had two children, Michael and Christine.

Widowed in 1964, she met and married Gary Hayner, who was enlisted in the U.S. Navy. She lived in Concord, Calif. and moved with Gary to Milwaukie, Oregon after he completed his service. They had three children, Juliann, and twins Melissa and Russell. She was an excellent homemaker and seamstress, a member and Sunday school teacher of Concord Christian Church in Milwaukie.

In 1977, she graduated with honors from Clackamas Community College with an Associate of Science degree in accounting. She owned and operated Town and Country Paving and A-l Striping Company for more than 10 years.

She enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren, gardening, traveling, oil painting, and collecting antiques. One of her greatest joys was having all of children and grandchildren over to cook delicious dinners so they could all be together for the holidays. She believed in strong family ties and traditions.
