Hazel was a loving, caring person. She enjoyed her flowers and vegetable garden, and was proud of her canning skills of which she did “lots.” She was an excellent seamstress. Over the years she enjoyed lots of memorable camping with family and friends and loved time by the campfire. Back in her day, she and Bob loved to dance and literally danced the night away.
Survivors include her daughter, Marie (Ted) of Long Beach; grandsons, Robert, and William (Kristie); great-grandchildren Justin (Sadie), Brianna, Amanda and Keegan; nieces and nephews Linda, Janice, Denny, Marvin and Mel. Hazel was a longtime member of Ocean Park Moose where she enjoyed many friendships and loved the fellowship.
