Hazel was blessed with five grandsons and two granddaughters, seven great-grandsons and seven great-granddaughters, and five great-great-grandchildren.

She met Nick at a barn dance. She was climbing the ladder to the hayloft and slipped and fell into Nick’s arms. Mary’s parents did not want them to wed. They eloped and were married on Sept. 12, 1934 in Minot, N.D. their parents learned of the marriage while listening to the radio. Nick and Mary lived in Grand Forks, N.D., Tacoma, Wash., Tooele, Utah and Doyle, Calif.
Mary finished high school at age 14. She won the North Dakota Spelling Bee. She flew with a stunt pilot in his two-seater airplane at age 10. He handed her a bag. She asked what is it for? He said for when you get sick. She said, I won’t! She didn’t. Doing loops and flying upside down didn’t faze her.
Mary’s working life centered around food — be it in the preparation or the serving. She loved pleasing people. She could pull a delicious meal together for a crowd in a matter of minutes.
Mary developed the “wet” version of Macular Degeneration and lost her sight.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Macular Degeneration Research, 22512 Gateway Center Drive, Clarksburg, MD 20871.
Mary was a strong-spirited and wonderful woman who will be dearly missed by friends and family.
