Hazel Lucile Chenoweth, 89, passed away Monday, Oct. 16, 2017, at Wellbrooke of Kokomo. Hazel was born March 21, 1928 to Josiah and Maggie Cole in New Tazewell, Tennessee.
Hazel enjoyed being outside, especially in her garden. She canned the vegetables that she grew, and was a very good southern cook. Hazel didn't know a stranger, she loved to talk and visit with anyone. She was a generous person, and would give you the shirt off her back. Hazel loved her family, and she will be missed.
Hazel is survived by her daughter, Dona Newsome; grandson Jason Newsome; sister-in-law, Doris Cole, Tazewell, Tennessee; and several nieces and nephews.
Hazel was preceded in death by her parents; three brothers; and five sisters.
Friends and family may call from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017, at Ellers Mortuary, Webster Street Chapel. A funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Monday, Oct. 23, also at the mortuary, with Hazel's nephew, Pastor Steve Cole, officiating. Hazel will be laid to rest at Sunset Memory Garden.
