Long, Hazel Lucille

Hazel Lucille Long, 86, passed away Friday, March 28, 2008, in Raymore, Mo. Visitation will take place on Friday, April 4, from 10 to 11 a.m. at Community Christian Church, 4601 Main St., Kansas City, Mo. A service celebrating Hazel's life will follow at 11 a.m. in the church's Bonfils Chapel. Graveside services will be 2:30 p.m. Friday, April 4, at the Lowell Cemetery, Lowell, Kan. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Community Christian Church or Fellowship of John c/o Foxwood Springs retirement community, Raymore. Hazel was born on April 8, 1921, in Cardin, Okla., (Ottawa County). She grew up in the flat prairie and mining country where Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri come together. She was one of eight children; all of her siblings predeceased her. Hazel was the daughter of John Freeland Long (from Ashe County, North Carolina) who married Elizabeth Deason Long (from Licking, Mo.). John and Elizabeth met at the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904. Her father, once a schoolteacher, was so smitten by the lovely farmer's daughter from Missouri that he never went back east. Instead he became a merchant in the dry goods business, owning various stores throughout the three-state area. She is survived by her cousins, a number of nieces and nephews, who universally regarded her as a "favorite aunt," and many friends in the greater Kansas City area. Hazel served in the U.S. Navy in Pensacola Naval Air Station, Fla., during World War II. When the war ended she went to college in Kansas to become a teacher. She taught in the Kansas City, Mo., school system for 30 years, first as an elementary school teacher and then as a special education teacher. She made her home in Raytown for many years. In 2003 she moved to the Foxwood Springs retirement community in Raymore. Her friends at Community Christian Church will remember her as a stalwart member of Christian Women's Fellowship, the Business Women's Circle, and an avid participant in the church's outreach mission trips. In 2003 she was recognized for her faithfulness and steadfast involvement by receiving the congregation's highest esteem with the Jean Hutchison-Rubye Norrington Award. She will be missed by her relatives and her many friends at Community Christian Church and the Foxwood Springs retirement community. Fond memories and condolences may be left at
