Hazel was born May 17, 1946, in Roanoke Rapids to the late Melvin and Gracie Moore. Hazel worked as a secretary for Gowen Oil Co., as well as West Carteret High School, where she was employed for 20 years.
Hazel was a faithful member of Maranatha Pentecostal Holiness church. She enjoyed going out to eat with her friends. She loved to cook and, when she was able, she enjoyed canning all types of fruits and vegetables she grew in her garden. Traveling to the beach or mountains was always a joy for Hazel. More than anything, she took great joy in her grandchildren and was always happy to spend time with them. Hazel’s kind and sweet spirit was refreshing to all who knew her.
She is survived by her husband, Allen Conway Jr. of the home; daughter, Rebecca Anne Keiser and fiancé Travis Moss of Rocky Mount; son, Terry Ross Rook Jr. and fiancée Desiree of Beaufort; sisters, Connie Mae Brooks and husband Ron of Gaston and Vanessa Dale Benton and husband Benny of Swansboro; brothers, Melvin Douglas Moore and wife Diann and Gilbert Wilson Moore, all of Roanoke Rapids; grandchildren, Allysa Rodriguez, Miguel Rodriguez, Brianna Rook and Ciarra Rook; and beloved cat, Callie.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, James Russell Moore.
The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at Munden Funeral Home in Morehead City. The same safety guidelines will apply.
As an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions in memory of Hazel may be made to Maranatha Pentecostal Holiness Church, 130 Airport Road, Beaufort, NC 28516.
