Hazel Erickson of Litchfield was an independent and strong-will woman who loved her family, her church and her community. She also really loved to dance and was always dressed to the nines.
Hazel never let on that she was dying and in intense pain. She kept going to church as usual, and the folks there had no idea she was in hospice — or even sick. That’s how she wanted it. She just kept living gratefully each day.
