Hazel was born in Hopewell, Virginia, in 1924 to the late Paul A. Rabel and Ila M. Haynes. She spent much of her youth in Loris, South Carolina before coming to Portsmouth where she made her home for the past 71 years. She was a member of the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church in Portsmouth for 32 years and for the past 21 years she has been a member of Grace Bible Church in Chesapeake. Hazel was always thinking of others. Despite declining health, she continued to reach out to those in need, if only in prayer. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
