She became assistant dean of the Juilliard School and, subsequently, head of the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance.

In 1977, she started her own company managing performing artists.

She was the president of board of the Southampton Fresh Air Home and has been active in the organization ever since.

Mrs. Haynes is survived by her two children, Sophy T. Haynes and Robert Van Rensselaer Haynes of New York; and a grandson, Sebastian Haynes. Her son, SFC Schuyler Haynes was killed in the Iraqi War and was awarded the Purple Heart and two Bronze Stars.
