Hazel Morrison
1929 - 2010

Mary Hazel Morrison lost her courageous battle with cancer on Wednesday, March 18, 2010. She was born in Defuniak Springs, FL on July 16, 1929 to Alexander Campbell Morrison and Frances Foye Loftin Morrison.
She is preceded in death by her son, Alex Lucero, and her beloved brother, James Forrest Morrison.
Hazel was blessed with a full life filled with many experiences and adventures. Her young life was spent in Defuniak Springs, FL, Geneva, AL and Pensacola, FL. She then met and married Rudolph Frigero and lived 20 years in Buenos Aires and Cordoba, Argentina. She lived and learned many different cultures and visited many other countries. She was fluent in several other languages. In the 60's she moved back to Pensacola with her husband, Hector Lucero and was quite the entrepreneur. She owned and operated several businesses including Morrison Motor Co. Inc.; one of nine Florida auto dealerships owned by her brother, Forrest. Afterwards she opened one of the first flea market/antique mall concepts in Pensacola, named, appropriately, "Garage Sales," In the last 70's her Mother wished to live out her years in her hometown of Defuniak Springs. Hazel moved her Mother and two children to Defuniak where she owned and operated Therapeutic Skin and Scalp until her retirement. Most recently, Hazel moved to Dallas, TX to be with her son , Michael, due to her failing health.
Hazel loved life, loved people and lived life to the fullest. Her sense of humor was second to none. She loved animals and always had a stray or two in her care. She loved her friends and family unconditionally. She had a knack for telling quote "stories" of uber proportions which we all enjoyed over and over again. Her love and laughter will be missed. One of her favorite songs was Frank Sinatra's "My Way." Hazel was adamant about her legacy, she wanted to be remembered for "doing it her way."
She was of the Catholic faith and loved Rosary.
Hazel leaves behind her loving son, Michael Lucero and his wife, Nellie, of Princeton, TX, as well as numerous other family members and a host of friends.
Graveside services will be held at Magnolia Cemetery in Defuniak Springs, FL at 1 PM Tuesday, March 23, 2010 with Waters and Hibbert Funeral directing.
A gathering will be held after the service, at which time details will be given.
Hazel requested no flowers, but rather a donation to your charity of choice in her honor.
