Hazel was a graduate of Gouverneur H.S. and a retiree from Nestles in Fulton, NY.

She also loved to read and enjoyed writing her own stories and loved to knit and crochet creating many beautiful sweaters and baby items for family and friends as well as scarfs, ear warmers and stuffed toys for her grandchildren. She was a (1960’s) member of the Avon Women’s Archery Team.
Hazel’s children wish to thank the Wayne County Nursing Home staff who cared for her during her stay on Peppermint Lane as well as the staff and Hospice Team on Memory Lane for all the love and care given to our mother and to us during the final part of her journey home.
