SOUTHPORT — Hazel Stevens Hood, Age “100 ½” (as she would have said), peacefully went to be with her Lord and Savior on September 18, 2021.
Hazel was preceded in death by her parents, Clarence and Lavarah Stevens, her brothers, Ralph Stevens and Bill Stevens, a sister, Grace Stevens Outland, and her beloved son, George Howard Burns.
She is survived by her grandsons, Michael Burns (Wilson, NC) and Christopher Burns (Savannah, GA), a great granddaughter, Alexis Perkins (Rincon, GA), a great-great granddaughter, Kennedy Perkins (Rincon, GA), several nieces and nephews, and cherished friends.
Hazel was a faithful Christian and member of Mill Creek Baptist Church in Southport, NC. She was known for her kind, loving spirit and gentle nature, and was famous far and wide for her delicious blueberry pound cake, pumpkin bread and baked goods. To know ‘Grandma Hazel’ was to love her, and she will be dearly missed by all.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 2, 2021 at 11 AM at Mill Creek Baptist Church, 1099 George II Hwy SE in Winnabow, NC. Following the memorial, she will be laid to rest in Morehead City, NC, in a private graveside ceremony.
