Ellen Nauman Hayden

August 31, 1943 — October 7, 2023

Ellen Irene Nauman Hayden was born August 31, 1943 in Washington D.C. to the late Nina D. Nauman and Russell W. Nauman, and sister Nina Nauman Corley. She died October 7, 2023 from organ failure in Atlanta, Georgia. She had just celebrated her 80th birthday.

She is survived by her daughter, Laura Bray Hayden (Shawn Kemna) and grandson Beckett Kemna. She also leaves behind extended family and many friends that were considered her family as well. She will be deeply missed.

Ellen grew up in Midtown Atlanta, graduated from Grady High School, attended Brenau College and lived in Atlanta most of her life. Her administrative career predominantly was related to real estate development.

She loved gathering with her friends and family and was quick to bring the humor and laughter. She was an animal lover - never met a dog she didn't like - and adopted dogs and cats in addition to having a long stint of pet-sitting in her retirement as well as volunteering for the Georgia Aquarium.

A celebration of Ellen's life with close friends and family will occur at a later time. In lieu of flowers, please donate in Ellen's name to your local animal rescue.
