Hazel Leora Lawhead was born June 1, 1912 in Trotters, North Dakota, the daughter of John Q. Lawhead and Minerva Greenup. She attended high school in Beach and was married to Warren Bentley Clark December 18, 1932. They started a dairy and had three daughters and two sons. Hazel and Warren with five little ones moved to Washington state in 1944 where Warren got employment at the Kaiser shipyards. Hazel worked many summers at the Vancouver Cannery, but most important to her was the raising of her children.
