Not sure what to say?

Rest in Heaven. You were the sweetest and greatest Aunt, and what great memories we all have of you.

Hazel was my neighbor for 20 years and always had a kind word to say to everyone. One of the nicest people I have ever known.

Eugene & Susie, Your Grammie will be proud of you into eternity for all of the love and devotion that you both poured over her. Warm thoughts are being sent to you today. Jeff, Julie & Ken Henes

The name Kett feels like a continuation of my family...started with two young boys (Bill and Gordie) who played together, got into trouble together yet were life-long friends. Hazel helped raise my dad, Gordie Burke, and by the stories, she deserves extra wings and a premier spot in Heaven! In later years she was a neighbor of my Aunt Marge and I would hear even more fun stories. May she rest in peace in the comfort of family waiting for her, knowing that her legacy is beautifully reflected...

Rest in peace Grandma Kett. I remember meeting you DECADES ago and yes, you were one of the nicest people I've had the pleasure to meet. Godspeed.

When I was a teenager, Hazel welcomed everyone to her home and made you feel special. The world was a better place because of her.

I also remember Hazel helping me with a minor work injury on my wrist that became infected, and she told me how to treat it. She faithfully asked me every evening how my scrape was healing, and I'd show it to her and she'd say, "Oh, that's looking much better!" And that's the way Hazel was; such a loving and...

Every person I introduced to her said that she was the nicest kindest sweetest person that they had ever even heard of, I will love that Lady with all my heart to the day I die.
