CENTERVILLE - Virginia M. (Ravell) Hazlett, 89, died peacefully at her home in Centerville, surrounded by her loving family, on April 28.
She was the beloved wife of Thomas J. Hazlett, her husband of 69 years.
Born in Waltham, Virginia was the daughter of Albert and Dorothy (Hodge) Ravell. She was a graduate of Belmont High School and during World War II she worked several months for Army Intelligence before joining her husband, a Naval Officer, in California.
As the spouse of a career Foreign Service officer, "Ginny" enjoyed the culture and lifestyle of their assignments in Latin America, Europe, and Japan. In every location, she focused her efforts on improving the lives of the less fortunate, especially children. She taught first and second grade in Chile and Dominican Republic.
Notwithstanding these great years, her real loves were her children and her church. Upon their retirement to Cape Cod, Virginia started Loma Linda, a small business that imported collectibles from Portugal. Always dedicated to helping others, she was a member of the Women's Guild at Our Lady of Victory Church, and other charitable organizations such as Meals on Wheels. She will be remembered by all for her inimitable smile.
In addition to her husband, Virginia is survived by her brother Charles Ravell of Hampton, NH, and sister Gloria Hopkins of Danvers, MA; two daughters, Sandra Waldmiller (Paul) of Houston, TX, and Susan Hazlett of Centerville; daughter-in-law Katharine Kincaid; grandchildren Paul, Jennifer, Geoffrey, Holly, Mychael, Jamie, Thomas III (Joey), James (Chip), and Vanessa; and great-grandchildren Jessica and Henry. Virginia was predeceased by her son, Thomas, Jr., and sister Marjorie Peters.
