Hazel lived much of her adult life in Manteca, CA where she was a member of the Sequoia Baptist church. She was a homemaker and wonderful mother to her children. Her grandchildren were truly her pride and joy. Hazel enjoyed crocheting, playing Sudoku and video games, and working jigsaw puzzles.
Hazel moved back to Heber Springs, AR in 2009. There she reconnected with family and friends. She loved to reminisce about fun times she had with classmates at the old Darcy schoolhouse and share stories of how things used to be in a slower paced world.
This kind soul will be missed by her family, but they rejoice in knowing they will see her again some sweet day.
