Hazel was born in Cayley, AB. She was the second oldest of ten children. Hazel spent most of her younger years in High River where she went to school and then met Fred. She began her married life with Fred in Okotoks and soon after moved to Calgary where she had her two sons. She lived in Calgary ever since. Hazel loved to have a good time especially at family reunions in High River and DeWinton. Her fondest activities were spent doing needle point, gardening, travelling, bridge, gin rummy, golfing at Canyon Meadows Golf Club. She was an avid curler for many years at the Glencoe Club. The past thirty years have been a very important part of her life because she belonged to the Calgary Gyro Club (Gysettes) where she made many important friends.
