I just heard about Hazel's passing. Our sympathy to Hazel's family and many friends. The first time I met Hazel was in the 1950's. As a child I thought she was one of the most beautiful ladies I had ever seen. I worked several years at the State Training School and came to admire Hazel for her way with the students there. After retirement we both belonged to Red Hat groups. Hazel, the Red Hat Peppers from White Lake and I the Country Red Hats from Plankinton. We always had such a good time! We will miss Hazel but know our life is so much richer for having known her!

To My Wilson Cousins and their families, My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. We have so many fond memories of our dear aunt. Tomorrow will be a celebration of her life and we will be with you in spirit! We now have another Angel in Heaven to watch over us. Love to all, Nancy and Richard Smith
