Early morning, Friday, November 5, 2021, the world lost a fun-loving woman who touched the lives of so many people, Hazel Marie Hyman at the age of 102 years young. Her journey in life began in Durant on February 13, 1919, the oldest of six children born to Willis Richard and Stella Marie Forrester Day.
Hazel grew up and attended schools in Ladonia, Texas and was a member of the Pep Squad Club at Ladonia High School. She was a longtime area resident moving to Rubottom in January of 1936. Hazel married her first husband Raymond Furrh on December 29, 1936. To this union, four children were born. Hazel married Robert Hyman on December 23, 1975. Robert preceded her in death on February 27, 2006, a few months after celebrating their 31st wedding anniversary. To this union, she gained two bonus children.
Hazel was a hardworking woman who was very active in church, work, her community, and life itself. She cooked at Leon School for five years and worked as an assistant floor manager at the Cookie Factory for 22 years. Since 1937, Hazel has been a member of the Rubottom Baptist Church making her one of the longest dedicated members of the church for 84 years. She enjoyed taking trips with the Marietta First Baptist Church. She was a member of the OHCE for more than 65 years. She was the oldest member that worked for the Love County Election Board in the west end of the county. Hazel loved gardening. She won NUMEROUS ribbons and plaques at the Love County Fair for her garden produce. Hazel's lifetime of experiences taught her the value of family. The love of her family was indescribable. She was one of six generations of children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Left behind to cherish her memory is her son, Steven Patrick Furrh of Rubottom; bonus son, Jim Hyman and wife Louise of Yukon; numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, great-great-great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
