She was born in Burgaw on March 20, 1945, to Civie Lee DeBose and Dollie Wells DeBose. As a young child, Hazel lived and graduated from Oxford Orphanage, now known as the Masonic Home for Children at Oxford.

Hazel is survived by her husband, Ronnie Graham; son, Paul Graham (Kathy), and their children, Jackson and Clint; daughter, Audra Williams (Michael), and their children, Hannah and Morgan; two brothers, Laurie DeBose (Bunny) and Ed DeBose (Betty); and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, five brothers and two sisters; and twin grandchildren, Matthew and MacKenzie.

Hazel enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren at their many activities and visiting with her many friends and family. She was a devoted employee at M&M Mini Storage and Access Storage and U-Haul.

The family invites you to celebrate her life with them at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 19, at Lifepoint Church, 3534 S. College Road, Wilmington. They will visit with family and friends one hour prior to the service at 5 p.m. You are invited to join with the family for fellowship and food immediately after the service at the church.
