She was the daughter of the late Louise and Fred Jefferson, granddaughter of the late Tressa and Frank Jefferson and the late Charles and Emma Tupper. Also, the sister of the late Ralph Jefferson.
Hazel was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She loved to talk and reminisce about her life and family. Her love of horses started when she was 10.

Hazel was the most caring, precious woman and never spoke wrongly about anyone, always kind words.
She is lovingly remembered by her Family and will be greatly missed.
