Hazel Cantrell was born at Anthony, Kansas on January 2, 1922, the daughter of Roy Hibbard and Maggie Hiner Hibbard, and passed from this life on March 1, 2015 in Kiowa, Kansas. After her high school graduation she attended Wichita Business College and then was a bookkeeper for a jewelry store. She and Clifford “Pete” Cantrell were married August 12, 1944 at her sister’s home near Waldron. She had lived east of the Hazelton-Corwin area since her marriage to Pete. Her first church was Ferguson Baptist. Then she was involved at Corwin Presbyterian Church and Corwin Women’s group for forty years until it closed. At that time she became a member of Kiowa United Methodist Church where she was also part of the United Methodist Women. Hazel always had a one-half acre garden from which she canned much produce. She was a marvelous cook and could cook anything. She was still growing flowers when she entered Kiowa Manor. She had dogs and cats on the farm. Her greatest pride was her grandchildren.
Hazel is preceded in death by her husband, Pete Cantrell; her parents Roy and Maggie Hibbard; sisters, Helen Stark, Ruth Vawter and infant sister, Katheryn.

Janell and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family with the loss of your Mother. I still have my mother, but life really changes for me when I lost my father 6 years ago. A friend told me at the time that to hold fast to the memories and that I might consider writing down my father memories, as I remember them to pass on to my children.
It is in the sharing of these memories that will help you get through the days to come, to see beyond the sorrow of your loss. I pray that the Lords loving grace will wraps around you, and through the grief the looking back at the memory will help comfort you. Depend on your friends, church for strength and always remember how much you are cared about.
