Family and friends were Hazel's delight and passion. She loved being a homemaker, and took pride in her home, raising her children, watching her grandchildren, and supporting her husband with the family business. She worked in the home-based office of C.L. Boswell Septic Services for 30 years.
It was the simple things around her that she never took for granted. Hazel was a very caring and compassionate person and a great listener. She loved to have fun and laugh, and was a very enthusiastic and great storyteller. She was always ready to go play bingo with family and friends, to go on family outings with her children, their spouses, and her grandchildren, and to go shopping at her favorite store, the Dollar Store, where she could stretch hard-earned money. She took joy in cooking, in canning produce grown by her husband, dancing up a storm to country music, and having sleepovers with her sisters all the way up to this current year. Hazel looked forward to watching her favorite T.V. show, Wheel of Fortune, each night with her husband.
She believed in the power and strength of the Lord and the beauty and peace that would await her after her passing. Showing this and her sense of humor, Hazel wished her final outfit to be her pajamas so that she was ready to peacefully rest in the Lord.
