Memories Timeline


  1. My Mom was a fun loving lady. She taught me how to do the same. Thank you all for being friends to her. She is missed. God rest her soul now. Suzie

  2. We enjoyed getting to know Hazel when she lived in New Hampton. She and LaVerne usually went to the 8:00 church service and we often had a chance to visit during coffee and rolls time after mass. My mom liked to visit with Hazel when she lived in Protivin, especially when going to get her hair cut.

  3. I will never forget our trip to Montana with Lovee and Hazel. Hazel will be remembered for being an outstanding cook. She had enough food packed to feed us all the way to Montana. And, she and I survived Bear Tooth Pass with our outstanding motorcycle drivers in an ‘Iowa Snowstorm’!! What a great time!

  4. Hazel had a contagious smile and there was always a sparkle in her eyes. I had so much fun with her and LaVerne on all of the motorcycle trips we took over many years. I will never forget our trip to New Orleans! Saying prayers for LaVerne and Hazel’s family. MHSRIP. Kristin Frank

  5. I will always remember the day I met Hazel. She met Lovee and I along the highway and brought him groceries and very nice lunch. And Sophie was with her to greet us as we arrived. Her love for Laverne was so inspirational.

  6. Shall never forget all the good times experienced with Hazel and Luverne associated with our Gold Wing motorcycle riding experiences and trips. Find the great roads in Heaven for us to ride when we join you, Hazel. Rest in peace. Dale & Joy Frank Charles City, IA

  7. We shared many ‘fun times’ with Hazel. Our thoughts and prayers are with ‘Lovie’ and her family. Hugs from the Knudtsons.
