Hazel Nesmith Garrison was born in Williamsburg County, South Carolina, on August 6th, 1921. She went to be with the Lord on February 1st, 2020. A loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and homemaker; Hazel's chief delight was spending time with her family and friends. It was not uncommon to find her in the kitchen preparing home-cooked meals for those she loved. She always looked for the good in others. Her life's motto was, "If you don't have a kind word to speak, it is better not to speak at all." Hazel, along with her surviving husband William Garrison were active members of Chamberlayne Baptist Church for over 50 years.

She is predeceased by her brothers Marvin Nesmith, Clifton Nesmith and Everett Nesmith. She is survived by her husband William "Bill" Garrison, her daughters Janet Daughtry and Carol Von Herbulis, her grandchildren Lauren Burgwyn and Taylor Titus, her great grandchildren Adelyn Burgwyn and Bennett Burgwyn and her sisters Anne VanDyke, and Bertha Klaus.

Following the interment, a memorial service celebrating her life will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 6th at Woody Funeral Home, Atlee Chapel, 9271 Shady Grove Road, Mechanicsville, Virginia.

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. (Proverbs 31:30)

After receiving the call last night about Hazel, many memories came to mind of a lovely lady whose heart was always touching others. She loved her family, and first and foremost her Lord. She had such an amazing gentle spirit that immediately made you feel peace and love when she looked at you. I can only imagine the welcoming celebration in heaven Saturday and reunion of loved ones there. What a blessing she was to all who knew her.
"The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace." (Psalm 29:11)

I remember fondly all the Nesmith reunions at their place.. the many relatives and the great food that i watched her work on for days. Also, a few summers when, as a child, i rode around their property on the tractor... a simple thrill to a young boy who had never been on one. She was a very kind, sweet, and caring person, and when i would visit, would always take time out of her day to sit with me and talk (usually with some kind of sweet in hand for me). My deepest prayers and thoughts to Billy and family.
