Hazel Marie Whaley

In the early morning of March 14, 2014 Hazel Marie Whaley passed peacefully away. She was born May 10, 1925 to James Noah Peacher and Rena E. Streeter.

Hazel was a home-maker extraordinaire, way ahead of HGTV! She loved sewing, knitting, gardening, painting, reading, horseback riding, and concealed carry and pack. She had a generous heart and donated to missionaries in Kenya, Life Outreach (for 50 years), and Wounded Warriors.

She is survived by her children, Judy Simpson, Carol O'Higgins, and Steve T. Higgins; daughter-in-law, Barbara Higgins; grandchildren, Tonja Surgeon, Kurt Marcisz, and Ian, Reyhan, and Justina Higgins, Susie, Julie, Stephanie, and Kayla Higgins, and Laurie Phillips; many great-grandchildren; and brother-in-law, Lester Whaley. She was preceded in death by Gerald Whaley, and son, Roger E. Higgins; and brother, Ray Peacher.

A private gathering will be held. Donations in her memory may be made to Life Outreach International, 1-800-947-LIFE. Arrangements in care of Judy Simpson, 541-773-8298.
