Lucy recently received top honors by the National Association of Dance Instructors when she was chosen as one of only five teachers in the nation to receive an award for her work.

The last member of her immediate family, Lucy was also preceded in death by her husband William J. Hayden, a well known actor, director and playwright.

They combined their talents to teach dance and theatre to children ages 6 through high school. They gave yearly recitals featuring ballet and other types of dance, acting and pantomime for 30 years. Lucy taught hundreds of children in Albuquerque over the years and is also known for helping Albuquerque Children's Theatre keep going after her husband Bill died in 1989.
