Hazel was a homemaker and enjoyed putting in a large garden big enough for her entire family and also growing beautiful flowers. She was most content at caring for her children and grandchildren and spending time with them, but for 20 years she sold Avon and thoroughly enjoyed getting out and visiting with her customers.

Hazel loved to read, crochet and play cards and board games. She especially loved to play Skip-Bo and Uno with her grandchildren. She also loved to do word search, play electronic games and collect angels. She loved Alan Jackson and was his greatest fan. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family.

Graveside services were held Wednesday, March 25, 2009, at 2:30 p.m. at Chambersburg Cemetery with Rev. Barb Hagerla officiating.

Memorials in lieu of flowers were suggested to the family.
