Transitioning from working to retirement you would often hear her speak about going dancing. She enjoyed ballroom as well as line dancing “with the girls”.

Her love of family always came first. Many joyous holidays were spent with her brother and sister and their families. Yankee swap was a highlight as well as a sport. She loved spending time with her nieces and was ready for any and all outings. Fun, laughter and mischief was the hallmark of each of those trips.

    I am so sorry for your loss.
    I have known Hazel and her sister for too short of a time. The time I did have with Hazel and her sister was so enjoyable. They both had the devil in them and was always laughing and happy. The family will miss Hazel so much but remember she is out of pain and smiling down at all of you.

    I just found out about Hazel passing.
    Karen and I (and our kids) just got to know her over the past year plus through the church. She was always terrific to talk with, and had plenty of stories.
    She was good with the kids and was a generous soul.
    Our prayers go out to the Thompson family.
