Hazel worked as a licensed practical nurse at the Washington Hospital Center until she retired in 1986 at 69 years old. Hazel sewed beautiful clothes for her family (suits, coats, dresses, hats). People loved her cookouts and enjoyed her BBQ, rolls and potato salad. Hazel was an avid gardener, dancer and traveler. Hazel was a proud woman that worked hard all her life.
