Hazel enjoyed traveling, shopping, and was a big fan of the Atlanta Braves.
Hazel was a devoted lifetime member of St. John Missionary Baptist Church serving on the Senior Usher Board for more than 50 years. She loved to cook, and was known for her "Cherry Pies" at the church homecoming and anniversary dinners. As a dedicated member of the Usher Board, she enjoyed hosting fellow church members at her home, where they held afternoon teas, conducted board meetings, and fundraisers for the church. Hazel also served as the church Treasurer in her late years.
Hazel was preceded in death by her husband and all of her siblings. She is survived by a sister-in-law, Janie Lee Bankston, her niece, Charlotte (Horace) Jordan the caregiver in her later years and a host of other nieces and nephews.
