Hazel was born on April 8, 1917 in Franklin County, Texas. She always loved telling people that she "was the 7th child born to a 7th child". She was one of ten children born to Benjamin and Mollie Massey.

If you ever asked her about marrying Frank her reply was always the same, "we married under a yard light in the preacher's yard!"

She was preceded in death by her husband Frank; her daughter Wanda Close; one granddaughter Kathy Rye; one grandson Tommy Kenneth Fitzgerald; five brothers: Homer, O.B., S.N., John and Harold Massey; three sisters: Lorene Jones, Luella Dawson and Lela Reese.

Hazel is survived by: one daughter MaeDell Fitzgerald and husband Bill of Sunray; one son James Boyett and wife Linda of Amarillo; seven grandchildren: Steve Homer, Keith Homer, Toni Admire, LeeAnn Moore, Robin Vines, Robert and Travis Boyett; eleven great grandchildren; eight great great grandchildren; and two great grand dogs.
