Hazel E. Venuti, 98, of Daytona Beach, FL, passed away on May 5, 2020 after a short stay at Advent Health Hospice Care in Ormond Beach. She was born in Boston, MA on August 12, 1921 to Samuel and Harriet Levine. Hazel grew up in Charlestown, MA before moving south to Florida. In Florida, she lived in Hollywood, DeLand, and Daytona Beach.

Hazel graduated from Girls High School and then went onto Bryant & Stratton Business College in Boston. She also held a degree in Hotel & Motel Management from North West School.

During WWII, Hazel worked at the First Service Command and Records Department. She also worked for Polaroid Corporation and Rustcraft Publishing Company in MA. After moving to Florida, Hazel worked until retirement at Burroughs Corporation in Hollywood. During her retirement, Hazel worked for First Baptist Church in DeLand.

Her favorite hobbies included music, reading, dancing, and traveling. She was a card and letter writer to all her friends and family. Hazel was active in her children’s lives by being a Brownie, Girl Scout, and Weblo Leader and being a member of the PTA. She loved going to her church for fellowship. Above all, she loved her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Hazel joined her beloved husband, Joseph, in Heaven. Left behind to cherish her memory are her children, Pamela Venuti Geronimo (husband, Ralph Geronimo), Joy Venuti Bowdre (husband, Stephen Bowdre), and Neil Venuti; and her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Hazel Venuti was one of the finest people it has been my privilege to have known. Devoted to God and her family, she always had a kind and positive word for all.
I lost touch with her after Joe passed away and it is my loss . She was a real light to all whose lives she touched. God speed Hazel.

Ma was much loved up here in the north country and will be missed. Joe thought the world of her and she was the perfect mother-in-law to me and grandmother to Josh. Our love goes out to the family.

♡Growing up I remember Ma Hazel always in the kitchen with her apron on! She always offered to sit at table. Her saying was "I'll just ad another cup of water, we have plenty! " Hazel always made me feel like one of her own. I thank God for her blessing she shares with me- my forever friend, one of her daughters Joy. I will always cherish her patience, love, so caring for all, and her wisdom! Peace and comfort to Ma Hazel's family and friends and extended family♡

Hazel(Ma) was a great lady. I knew her and the Venuti family for over 40 years and she has always treated me as a 3rd daughter. She was loved by her wonderful children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and by everyone that knew her. She is now reunited with Joe. May she Rest In Peace.
