Hazel Marjorie Weston

April 9, 1924 — August 11, 2019

Hazel Marjorie Weston, the daughter of Albert and Madeline (Bills) Petty was born April 9, 1924 in Exira, Iowa and died August 11, 2019 at the Exira Care Center in Exira at the age of 95 years, 4 months, and 2 days.

Hazel was baptized at the Audubon Christian Church in Audubon, Iowa and attended the Gray Consolidated Schools in Gray, Iowa. In March 1944, she was united in marriage to Calvin Weston at the First United Methodist Church in Atlantic, Iowa. They were blessed with seven children: Carolyn, Darrell, Joyce, Jeff, Kathrin, Janet, and Tamara. They farmed in the Viola, Iowa and Gray areas, where they grew row crops and raised livestock for more than 20 years. They later moved into Audubon.

Hazel was a homemaker and during the harvest season sorted corn for Garst for more than 30 years. She also worked various jobs, helping elderly women. She lived in her own home until moving to the Exira Care Center in August 2017. She was a member of the Assembly of God Church in Gray, Audubon, and Carroll, Iowa. Most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her family.
