Kimberley Ann Clayton departed upon her last adventure on March 3, 2010. Born in Clarksburg WV on July 23, 1957, to parents Howard and Deloris Clayton, she was a graduate of Washington Irving High School and the WVU Business College.Kim was a long time WVU employee who worked for many years at the Health Sciences Center and more recently for the School of Civil Engineering and had been recently elected to the Staff Council where she had hoped to help other employees. Her more satisfying work was running a small jewelry business, Mountain Mist Products, with her husband and daughter where she was instrumental in purchasing supplies and designing custom jewelry which they sold at many retail outlets locally and at numerous, well known, juried craft fairs.A warm and open person who never knew a stranger, she was always ready to lend a helping hand with a broad smile, a "Can Do' attitude and tireless energy. Her many loves and interests included, but were not limited to, adventure traveling, camping, caving, making jewelry and her dearest love, cooking amazing meals and food for friends and family. With her innovative and insightful approaches, she was well known for success where others had given up. Her departure leaves a void that would be very difficult to fill.She is survived by both of her parents and her husband of 30 years, Thomas Hay and daughter Beryl Hay sisters Aletha Gray and her daughter Claire from Morgantown and Wendy Thomson with husband Jim and daughter Jessica from Lancaster, Ohio brother Howard ""Larry"" Clayton, his son Lonny, and wife Margaret from Ogden, Utah and many, many dear friends and family.Friends will be received at Hastings Funeral Home 153 Spruce St., Morgantown, from 2-4 & 6-8 pm on Saturday, March 6, and from 12noon - 1pm on Sunday, March 7. A funeral service will be held in the funeral home at 1pm with Rev.Tim W. Halloran officiating. Cremation services will be provided by Hastings Funeral Home.
