Hazel Lenora Clark 79 was born July 12, 1937 to Thomas Stewart and Cleo Patton-Stewart in Doddridge Arkansas. By the age of 5, Hazel lost both parents leaving her to be raised by her Aunt Dunch and Uncle Absalom who cared for her as if she was their own. She confessed her life to Christ at an early age. Hazel was educated in the Kansas City Missouri school district where she met and married Theodore Gardenhire Jr, and to this union two children Maurice Gardenhire and Gayle Taylor were born. Hazel later married W.C. Clark.
She was preceded in death by her husband W.C. Clark, her daughter Gayle Taylor and her Aunt and Uncle who raised her.
Hazel worked as a key-punch operator for Doris Sawyer and Danny and Debbie Dare for many years lastly working as a loan processor for Bank of America until her health began to fail.
As a very dedicated Kansas City Chiefs , Kansas City Royals and San Antonio Spurs fan she was very vocal in rooting her teams on and it was definitely a sight to see! Her competiveness in card playing, well let*s just say that we all have sayings we use til this day because of those games!

Her strength she displayed daily as she did her love for her family. The Matriarch of OUR family will forever live in our hearts!
Momma, Grandma, Cousin, Black Dawg, Skipper*.whatever she was affectionately referred to by all that loved her, spread her wings and took flight to be with Our Lord and Savoir Jesus Christ on April 23, 2017, surrounded by family.
She leaves to continue her legacy her son Maurice(Margaret) Gardenhire, her grandchildren, Cherise Partee, Shanae Crim, John Taylor III, Adriene Ragland, Maurice(Christina) Jones, Keisha(Ponsitta)Crim, Keilah Taylor, Anthony(Sherida)
Gardenhire, Theresa(Floyd) Jones, 28 great-grandchildren, 12 great great-grandchildren, cousins who were more like siblings; Joe Stewart, Willie Stewart, Cindy Ramsey, Shirley Ann Stewart, Barbara Jean Boden, and a host of friends who will miss her dearly.
