Hazel diligently supported STARS in her lifetime, never knowing that STARS, along with Stettler First Responders and the team at Foothills ICU would make such heroic efforts to save her life. The family is so grateful for all their kindly and professional care. Hazel was sensitive to the needs of those around her and was always reaching out a helping hand. Hazel will be remembered for her outgoing nature and her cheery smile.
