Birth: May 21, 1897
Dade County
Missouri, USA
Death: Oct. 22, 1997
Greene County
Missouri, USA

Hazel, age 18, married Ed Maze, age 21, on St Patrick's Day, March 17, 1916. They raised three daughters , Ella Elizabeth born October 3, 1917; Virginia Lee born April 3, 1921; and Rosalie born in 1932, Hazel's niece whose mother Velma passed away in 1933. Another daughter, Norma Jean, born May 7, 1930, died of jaundice at just a few days old and is buried in Masonic Cemetery, Dadeville.

Ed and Hazel were partners in farming, working almost 300 acres. Besides cattle, chickens and crops, they also hunted, trapped and fished to support the family.

They built a house in Dadeville when their daughters started school there, but continued to work their farm.

Through births and deaths, joys and sorrows, in good times and bad, Hazel was an amazing lady who lived every day of her life to the fullest. A plaque in the living room of her home said, "Only dull women have immaculate homes." Hazel was not a dull woman, and her home was warm and inviting, with evidence of her hobbies and interests.

Hazel's sister is Velma Frances Ritchey Dodson. Velma died at age 40, a mother with four young children, and is buried in Hampton Cemetery, Dade County, MO.
