Aug. 25, 1923 — Dec. 22, 2012

Hazel M. Turner, a resident of Fairfield, left us to join her heavenly Father on Dec. 22, 2012, after battling cancer. Hazel was born in San Francisco on Aug. 25, 1923, to Charles and Hazel North. She resided in San Francisco until she married Steve Turner, who was serving in the Air Force. After retiring from military service in 1959, they made their home in Fairfield where they raised a family and lived out the remainder of their lives.

Hazel worked for the Fairfield Recreation Department as a lifeguard and swimming instructor. To this day, people she taught still came up to her and said, “Hello Mrs. Turner. Do you remember me?” She was an avid swimmer and loved the outdoors, especially camping with her husband.

Hazel was a member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church where she helped with CCD. She later made Our Lady of Mount Carmel her home church, where she was very active and became a Lay Carmelite, a very important part of her life.

She is survived by her children, Carol Pena, Patricia Spiesman and James Turner; grandchildren, Dennis and Ronald Desrosiers, Ashly Lowe, Brian and Christian Trivitt; seven great-grandchildren; and nieces, Jeanne Llamas and Pam Hykants. Hazel is preceded in death by her husband, Steve Turner; and her son, Charles E. Turner.

A rosary will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 27, 2012, at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. Mass will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Dec. 28, 2012, at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, with a private burial.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to your favorite charities. Arrangements entrusted to Fairfield Funeral Home, 425-1041.

    Carol, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Hazel will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you so much for thinking of me and inviting me to visit with her during her final moments with us. You did an excellent job of taking care of her and finding her comfort in her last days. I am sure she is smiling down at you. Patricia M.

    Hazel will be missed tremendously. I know her from OLMC...She will be remembered by me by her smile, laughter, great sense of humor, being a straight shooter, loving the Lord,her Church and much more. She was a LOT of fun to hang with. I'm glad she was able to enjoy my pasta a few weeks ago. Salute' Hazel :) Love ya! Anna

    I have been away from Fairfield and am catching up on local news. I am so saddened to learn that Hazel has gone to her heavenly reward. She was such a faithful servant of Christ. I cherish a crucifix that she gave me long ago. Her warmth and loving smile will be greatly missed.
