The marriage of John and Linda provided 4 grandsons, which became the center of her world. She was known to them as “Gegie”, and with the first being born in 1982 she lovingly and willing helped to raise them. One of her grandsons stated, “they could never repay her for the time, energy and love she gave them.”
Hazel was known for her spunkiness and competitive nature. Every week on Wednesday was a special day with the family, she always went to her daughter’s home, where they played a hard-fought game of scrabble, watched soap operas, and ended with having dinner together.
The winter of 2014, due to failing health Hazel moved to Ripley Crossing in Milan, to spend the remainder of her life. As her health deteriorated, she clearly stated that she was at peace and was ready to pass on. This past Friday, December 8, 2017, she got her wish as she quietly passed away.
