Life’s journey for Mildred Hazel Hines Clark came to a quiet close on Tuesday, August 25, 2015 at her home at 335 Carroll Street, Thomasville, North Carolina. Hazel will be forever missed but always remembered by family and her close circle of friends as a quiet but humble person. Hazel was all about family helping all she could in all kinds of ways. She loved to dance. Even after her health failed she found a way to do her special moves — “the jig” by way of exercise. Her favorite past times included watching movies on her favorite TV channel Lifetime network. She would often fall asleep while watching Lifetime, the Price is Right and Let’s Make a Deal. Hazel also loved sitting on her front porch enjoying the outside.
