Hazel Oladine Noel, 96, of Richmond, passed away March 10, 2022, at Rosebud Village. She was born June 23, 1925, to Jesse and Haidee Leona Woods Noel.

Hazel was proud of the fact that she was from Milton and took every opportunity to tell people. She was well-loved by everyone who knew her; Hazel was lovingly referred to as Rosebud Village’s “Mascot”.

She worked in the sheltered workshop at Green Acres; she loved watches even though she couldn’t tell time, and carried a bible even though she couldn’t read.   Hazel loved deer and all of the many shopping trips that she would go on.

She was a member of Whosoever Ministries in Fountain City.

Hazel is survived by two nieces Juellane (Mike) Matney, Tina Drew, two nephews Casper Pursifull, Herbert Noel, several nieces, nephews, and a dear friend Rhonda Roberts Hathaway.

She is preceded in death by her parents, seven brothers and sisters; Mildred Carty, Inez Palmer, Ora Noel, John Noel, Paul Noel, Herbert Noel, Merele Pursifull.

Services will be private and at the convenience of the family. Stegall-Berheide-Orr Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
