Hazel (Hazie) Jean Pitts De Wald left us peacefully on Saturday, February 16, 1991.

Hazie was born in Salt Lake City, Utah to James S. and Emily May Gowan Pitts. She was married to Bud De Wald in Los Angeles, California and later divorced. Member of the LDS Church.Hazie worked for many years in the administrative offices of Skaggs Drug Center. In addition, she held many and varying positions throughout her life in widely diversified occupations. Hazie was an independent spirit who enjoyed life and all of its possibilities to the fullest. She was a combination of "Mom and Auntie Mame" to her nieces and nephews who continue to adore her.

Hazie is survived by her only sister, Myrle H. Hunter, with whom she enjoyed a lifelong bond. Their weekly trips downtown were a ritual for many years and Myrle will hold dear the cherished memories that she and Hazie accumulated. Hazie is also survived by two sisters-in-law, Alice Pitts and Jean Pitts. She was preceded in death by three brothers, Earl Pitts, Roy Pitts, and Homer Pitts.

Family prayer and graveside services will be held Wednesday, February 20th, at 12 noon, Salt Lake City Cemetery, 4th Avenue and N Street under the direction of Larkin Mortuary.

"We will miss you, Hazie, while we continue our journey; but kindred spirits are never apart for long."
