Hazel Christine Caputo
5/18/1928 ~ 5/10/2012
Our sweet daughter, sister, and aunt passed away May 10, 2012 peacefully at her home surrounded by her family that loved her dearly.
Hazel will be remembered by all for her caring ways, generosity, and witty sense of humor. Although she never had children of her own, she was the "other" mother to many.
Hazel was born to Rosario and Christina Caputo. She was raised in loving Italian family with 10 siblings on the West side of Salt Lake City. She spent most of her working years running Caputo Grocery store and as a telephone operator for "Ma Bell". Hazel loved spending time with family, working in her beautiful yard, skiing and golfing. In Hazel's eyes you were never too young or old to strap on your skis and head up the mountain. All the better if the sun was out and you could wear your Bermuda shorts and halter top.
Hazel was preceded in death by parents Rosario and Christina Caputo, her brothers Jay Caputo, Roy Caputo and Dominick Caputo, Marie Caputo-Jefferies, and John Caputo.
She is survived by Frank Caputo, Lee Caputo, Rose Caputo, Margaret Caputo-Seeronen, and Eileen Caputo-Tubbs, as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Our family would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Frank Zigrossi, Hazel's team at the Huntsman Cancer Institute, and her wonderful nurses and aids from Curro Home Health and Hospice.
