Sunday, January 15, 2006, at Retama Manor in Harlingen, Texas.

She was born on
November 9, 1914, in Meridian, Texas, to Martin and Schada Josey. Hazel moved with her family to the Rio Grande Valley in the late 1920s. She married Douglas H.

She was an active member of the First United Methodist Church, preparing the Sunday communion there for many years and was actively involved in the womenís group at her church. Hazel was a very dedicated wife and mother, and her strong love of God and her family was first in her eyes.

Troy, Carl, James, Roby and Grady Josey.
