HAZEL C. CHURCH
Hazel Charlotta Jane Church died Friday, November 9, 2001, after several years of prolonged illness.
Born April 20, 1910 at Mabel, North Carolina, she was named after her grandmothers, Charlotta (Lottie) Burkett and Jane Norris.
In her youth and through her developing years, the focus of her life was centered in her lifelong tie to the Union Baptist Church of Mabel. She derived her strength from God through the church.
Hazel graduated from Cove Creek High School and Appalachian State Teacher's College and did teach school for a few years. This career changed when she met and then married Arthur Church on January 31, 1931.
Devoted in love and honor of her husband, this union of 63 years of marriage produced five children, Wanda Cole, Frankie Robson, Sarah Brown, David Church and Louise Davis; 13 grandchildren, Jerry and Edward Cress, Chris Robson, Kathy Harvey, Bill and Paul Brown, Bonnie, Loren and Frankie Church, Pat, Shela, Tony and Andy Davis.
Preceded in death by her husband, a daughter, Frankie Robson, and three grandchildren, plus many of her family and friends, Hazel has gone to join them at the Throne of God.
We, who are left behind, do mourn our loss, but celebrate her victory, and stand as witness to her impact and influence on our lives.
Graveside services were held at 10:30 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2001, at the Chariton Cemetery with Rev. David Church and Mr. Bill Brown officiating.
