Hazel was born April 6, 1919, in Des Moines, Iowa, to William Charles Roth and Vern Fessler Roth. On Jan. 8, 1954, she married Norrel Stone, better known as Stoney.
Hazel was preceded in death by: her parents; her husband; a brother, Charles W. Roth; and a sister, Mary Louise Roth.
She is survived by two nephews, Gregory Roth and Jeffrey (Mitzi) Roth, a great-nephew, Michael Roth, and a great-niece, Jessica Roth, all of Fort Walton Beach, Fla. She also leaves behind one of her dear four legged friends, Fifi, the sweetest poodle ever.
After graduating from University of Missouri-Kansas City, she had a career in fashion merchandising and was a buyer at Moss Brothers in St. Petersburg, Fla., for many years. Upon retirement, she and Stoney moved to Clayton in 1975, where she could usually be found on the local golf course or enjoying a morning meeting with her friends at the local coffee hangout. Never one to stay retired, she was instrumental in Clayton’s first humane society, where she had a hard time saying no to taking the dogs home to live with her and Stoney. As if her days were not filled enough, she also worked tirelessly with helping build Hospice in Clayton.
In 2010, Hazel moved to Fort Walton Beach to be with family. Burial will take place in Des Moines. Memorial plans are incomplete at this time and will be announced at a later date.
Memorial contributions can be made to Boggs Mountain Humane Shelter or to Clayton Baptist Church.
