Hazel was a loving and devoted mother to her son, Eric (Laura) Norred; daughters, Jamie Norred and Joy (Tim) Guill. Family is what Hazel cherished most in this world. One of her greatest joys was her grandchild, Ella, whom she referred to as her angel. She also took delight in her grandchild, Joselyn who was added to her family through marriage.

Hazel was strong, brave, giving, caring, and compassionate woman who loved her family deeply. She also had a great love for her Lord and spent her life reading, studying, and sharing His word. She gave much of her life and time serving in her church, teaching Sunday School to children, visiting the homebound, and fostering children early in her marriage.

She possessed the gift of making those around her feel loved and cherished. Always a faithful wife, loving mother and grandmother. She will be missed more than words can express by all who loved her.
