Hazel Annette Smith, age 96, passed away on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 in Kokomo. She was born on May 11, 1922 in Lafayette, Indiana to the late Noah and Anna (Hurst) Justice. Hazel graduated from West Point High School, and worked at Mary Mac Shoppe in Kokomo for 16 years.

In 1941, Hazel was married to Russell Gordon Smith in Kentucky. Russell preceded Hazel in passing in 1996. They had resided in Port Charlotte, Florida, where Hazel belonged to Women of the Moose #1619, Women’s American Legion Auxillary, and Elk’s Lodge. She also spent a great deal of time volunteering at hospitals and nursing homes while in Florida. Hazel enjoyed spending her free time by playing cards, bowling, golfing, and dancing. Even in her later years, Hazel was quite the adventurist, going for hot air balloon rides and going up in her son’s glider.

Smith; sister-in-law, Elizabeth Justice; grandchildren, Jacinda Mahon, Debra Mund, Melissa Williams, Erin (Aaron) Starr, Schuyler Smith, and Breanna (fiancé Julian Medina) Smith; great grandchildren, Wesley (Courtney) Beckom, Cassandra (Kevin) Davin, Jace Bryant, Dillon Mund, Kayela (fiancé Shayne Riley) Williams, Justice Williams, Truman Smith, and Kennedy Smith; great-great grandchildren, Lyla and Lyndin Davin, Corrigan and Carringtyn Beckom; step grandchildren, Aimee (Chase) Romero, and Abbee (Mike) Summers; step great grandchildren, Keyton, Kaeden, and Kamryn Romero, and Harlowe, Nolen, and Irelyn Summers; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and husband, Hazel was preceded in passing by her grandsons, Ryan Smith and Matthew Smith; six brothers, and four sisters.
