Hazel's children and her home were her pride and joy. She was very spiritual and took great comfort in her faith as a member of the Baptist church. She loved spending time at the lake, travelling, and a great game of cards. Hazel would sit anytime for a game of Yahtzee and was thrilled when she won. She loved to hear a good joke and tell a good joke, to make people smile. Hazel was a Brownie and Girl Guide Leader in her early years and loved to offer a helping hand. She had a wonderful passion for birds, especially hummingbirds which she would watch in fascination for hours. Hazel had wonderful friends who helped and comforted her, sharing her life experiences throughout the years.
