She faithfully served her church for over 40 years in various roles and on different committees but she really enjoyed helping prepare meals for families while on the bereavement committee and more recently helping with meals for the Cummings High School Football team. Hazel loved playing dominoes and working on puzzles. You could almost always find one laid out in her house that she was working on.
