Hazel Mae Reynolds was born in Claremont, New Hampshire on October 4, 1922, Hazel Mae (Putnam) Reynolds died peacefully in Everett, Washington at her home of 56 years on March 15, 2015, with her kitty by her side. The daughter of John G. Putnam (born 1862) and Abbie Telenga (born 1882), Hazel was the last survivor among eight siblings.
When she was 4 years old, Hazel moved with her family to Everett, where she lived out the rest of her life. She grew up in the Pinehurst area and rode the Interurban Railway to Everett High, from where she graduated.
Early in WWII, Hazel met a young soldier from Arkansas (her future husband, Ray) while at a roller rink. The Army took him away, but the two later reunited and were married in January 1946. Before Ray passed away in 1996, the couple marked 50 years of marriage with a golden anniversary celebration at First Baptist Church of Everett, the same church where they married.
She was devoted to her three children, Samuel (Celia), Dennis (Rhonda), and Nancy (Chip) Sunderland. Hazel also delighted in her two grandchildren, Summer (Dale) and Skyler (Olivia), and two great-grandchildren, Cadence (the "Little Doll") and Mason ("Sweet Boy").
Hazel worked for Dr. Eytinge in Everett for 33 years. She loved to travel, cook, keep up her home and attend concerts, plays and community events she would read about in "The Herald." She served in a Children's Hospital Guild and Christian Women's Club for over 40 years. Sunday afternoons would find her enjoying hymns and Christian music on the radio.
Hazel loved being with and serving her family. After a lifetime of memorable holiday dinners, at age 90 she cooked her final Thanksgiving dinner from scratch making everything from cornbread dressing to cranberry sauce. One of her great pleasures was to bake and deliver delicious homemade cookies to others. She had a loving, thankful heart, a sweet nature and a strength that came from her faith and hope in the Lord.
We will love and miss her always.
A memorial and celebration of Hazel's life will be lead by Rev. John Sinkevitch on April 12, 2015 at 2pm, at Evergreen Funeral Home, 4504 Broadway in Everett.
Arrangements under the direction of Evergreen Funeral Home, Everett, WA.
