  1. A long and cherished friend will be missed. We grew up together, went through school together and were classmates as we graduated from CK High School.
    To the family, I wish them to remember the fond memories of her life and celebrate the good-place God has prepared for her.
    She was definitely a “Golden Girl”.

  2. We are saddened to learn of Hazel’s passing. She was a dear lady; and many memories of C-K & the Billups’ family include Hazel. We send our love to Tony, Melissa and all the family members.
