Hazel Mae (Spurgin) Shaw passed peacefully in her sleep on Nov. 4, 2008 at Douglas Care Center. She was the daughter of John Wesley and Ethel Lucerne (McElhaney) Spurgin. She was reared and educated in the Torrington area. Hazel married Raymond Joseph Cronin in 1947. To this union three children were born. They worked and lived in many areas of the Rocky Mountain region, including Torrington, Fort Collins, Colo., Rock Springs, Rawlins and Riverton. After separating from Raymond, Hazel married Marcus Milford Shaw in the early 1950s. One child was born to this union. The family moved to Douglas around 1960. Hazel and Mark separated in 1969. Hazel continued to raise her four children alone and remained in Douglas until her death. She worked as a waitress at Skelly's Big Wheel, the Country Inn and LaBonte Inn and tended bar for a time. She worked for many years at Michael Manor (now Douglas Care Center) as a nurse's aide while acquiring her license as a CNA. She retired in 1988. She is survived by her four children and their spouses Duran Cronin of Douglas, Joe and Gloria Frasler of Douglas, Michael and Geanie Cronin of Glenrock and LeVoy and Wanda Knight of Gillette; grandchildren Rick Dawson, Tina Cronin, Michael McBride, Jeremy Cronin, Jennifer Cronin, Kellie Cronin, Jordan Knight and Scott Knight; great-grandchildren Autumn McBride, Braden Cronin and Blake Weathers; many nieces, nephews and her friends at Douglas Care Center.
