Hazel passed peacefully from this life on 7/11/14 after a seven-year battle with dementia. She is now in Heaven with God, her struggle finally over.
Hazel was born in El Centro CA, December 24, 1943, a Christmas baby. Her family eventually settled in Roswell where Hazel grew up and went to school. Later she lived in Virginia and North Carolina for several years. After moving back to Roswell in 1982, she married Terry in July 1984. She was a lifelong writer and an original member of the Joy Writer’s group in Roswell. All of her working life was spent in printing and she loved the work. She was also an accomplished seamstress and gardener among many other interests. Her mom was her best friend.
She was preceded in death by her mother Mary Ruth Beall and stepfather S K Beall. Also preceding her were brothers Charles “Chuck” and Johnny Franklin Hubble.
Survivors include brothers Richard Lee Hubble and wife Jan of Greenville SC, Chris Hubble, Lubbock TX, sister Jennifer Hubble and husband, Bobby Seward, of Dexter. She is also survived by son Bill Wright and wife, Vicki, of Tijeras, N.M., and daughter Sandra Phipps of Roswell. Grandchildren include Kaleigh and Ciara, daughters of Bill Wright. Also Leland Wright, Jonathan and Cara Harris, of Roswell, and Jeremy Johnstone, of Venice, CA, children of Sandra Phipps, and a great-granddaughter Corrine Rosie Wright, daughter of Leland Wright. Hazel has many nieces, nephews and cousins. Hazel’s husband, Terry, also survives at the home.
