Ms. Hazel was the attendance secretary when I started teaching at Walker. I enjoyed working and talking with her. What a sweet lady! She will be missed!

Love this lady to the moon & back this is for sure heart-wrenching to learn. I will never forget the stories we shared at work or the times I greeted her every morning just to see her smile and ask her how her day was going. I had made a promise to always look out for her while I was working I did my best, even though my time was over at ATC I still called when I could. Missing her each and every day! Man ole man this hurts

I knew Hazel from working with the Okaloosa County School System.She also worked at Winn-Dixie. Hazel was the same every time I saw her. She was kind, helpful, caring and easy to get along with. She always exhibited Christian traits and character. You could tell she loved God, family and just people in general. She will be missed by family and friends.
