A funeral service for Hazel Margaret Evans Pike, age 93, will be at 2:00 p.m. today at the First Christian Church in Mutual, with Rev. Clyde Irving and Rev. Pat Sutherlin officiating. Burial will be in the Dunlap Cemetery, with arrangements by Anderson-Burris Funeral Home.
Hazel was born to William and Sarah (Owens) Evans on August 9, 1911, near Mutual in Woodward County and passed from this life on June 28, 2005 at Greenbrier Nursing Home in Enid.
She began her school years in the Bricker Rural School near Mutual, attended Mutual High School, and then graduated from Burlingame, KS High School in 1933. She returned to Woodward and attended business school for a short time. Hazel married John Melton, who passed away a few short years later. On January 5, 1946, she married Lawrence Harvey Pike, and they established their home in Mutual. The couple had one daughter, Thela. Lawrence passed away in 1966 but Hazel continued to live in Mutual until moving to Enid in 1998.
Hazel was a faithful member of the First Christian Church of Mutual, serving in whatever capacity the church needed, including Sunday School teacher, Bible school teacher, and church custodian for many years. She also served in many offices with the CWF (Christian Women's Fellowship). During her time in Enid she attended Christian Church of the Covenant.
She is survived by one daughter, Thela Punneo and husband David of Enid; two grandchildren, Michael Punneo and wife Angela of Enid, Joy Whitsett and husband Allien of San Diego, CA; six great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends who will cherish the memory of her smile and loving way in the world.
Hazel was preceded in death by her parents; her husbands, John and Lawrence; four brothers, Charles, Dewey, Robert and Lea Evans; and two sisters, Lillie Belle Evans and Mabel Heckart.
Memorials may be made through the funeral home to the Mutual First Christian Church.
