Ward, Hazel
Hazel Alloway Ward passed away on November 8, 2017, just 10 days before her 92nd birthday. Hazel was the beloved wife of the late Robert Ward Sr. Hazel was born in Hughenden, Australia on November 18, 1925, daughter of Charles and Rachel Alloway. She met Bob in Charter's Towers, Australia in 1942 where he was stationed in the Air Force and they married in 1943. In 1945, when the war was over, she boarded a war bride ship bound for America to settle with Bob in Branford, where she spent the next 70 years raising her four children. She was a devoted wife and mother. Hazel enjoyed gardening, cooking, sewing and caring for her grandchildren. She was a proud member of the First Baptist Church of Branford and a member of Eastern Stars. Hazel is survived by her children Robert Ward Jr., Penelope Peterson (Ted), Barbara Neagle (Tom) and Melinda Torelli (Gary), all of Branford. She is also survived by her grandchildren Dylan Ward, Larissa Foster, Jonah Dallai, Rachel Secondino, Ben Neagle, Jeffrey Peterson, Jessica DelValle, Austin Torelli and Coral Torelli; her nine great-grandchildren and many loving relatives in Australia. Our family wishes to thank Kelly, Barb, Louise and Rhonda for their compassionate care of Hazel during her illness. We would also like to express our sincerest gratitude to Dr. Levy for his exceptional care and support. We are so grateful for such a great lady, mother and grandmother. She will be missed sadly forever.
