As a member of Antioch Baptist Church for more than sixty years, Hazel was a Sunday School teacher and a member of WMU. She was retired from Premier Hosiery and a homemaker. She was a hard working mother of seven who loved the simple pleasures of life – flowers of all kinds (especially dahlias), sitting on her front porch swing, visits by children and grandchildren and taking care of her great-grandchildren. She made the best cream corn which her grandchildren would often fight over at meal times. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her, but most especially by her family who now hold precious memories close to their hearts.
A Celebration of her life will be held at Antioch Baptist Church. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.
