A light-hearted and generous woman, Hazel will be remembered for her humor, laughter and love of life.

So very sad to hear the news about Hazel. I feel so fortunate to have met her and experienced her wonderful sense of humor, her silly laugh... and her pie. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends. What a truly special lady.

Many years ago I was in a Bible study with Hazel. And every time I saw her after that study she never failed to ask me what prayer requests I had. She brought so much joy where ever she was. Heaven is brighter with her presence but earth is dimmer. I will miss her.
