Hazel Leora Lawhead Clark
Birth: Jun. 1, 1912
Trotters
Golden Valley County
North Dakota, USA
Death: Dec. 5, 1997
Vancouver
Clark County
Washington, USA

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.

Residing in Vancouver for 53 years, Hazel and her family were very active in church ministry. She was an organist at Battle Ground Baptist for thirty years and prior to that time a pianist at Manor Evangelical Church. Hazel loved gardening and was a member of the Manor Garden Club for many years.

Hazel and Warren enjoyed 62 years of marriage before Warren passed away on February 21, 1994. Hazel continued living on the family farm until 1996 when she moved to the Pavel adult foster home in Brush Prairie. Her family expresses appreciation to the Pavel family for their loving care during the past year.

Besides her husband, Hazel was preceded in death by her brothers, Harold, Roger and Norval Lawhead, and her sister Nell Callender.

Survivors include one brother Don of Kodiak, Alaska; her daughters: Joann Wells (husband Frank) and Arlys Barnes (husband Eddie) of Vancouver, and Dorothy Miller (husband Bob) of Glendale, California; and two sons, Rex (wife Karen) of Vancouver and Don (wife Jane) of Brush Prairie.

One of the greatest enjoyments of Hazel’s life was her 15 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren.
