Beverly Kay Hazlett

July 01, 1953 ‒ August 23, 2018

Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD: Beverly Hazlett was not your textbook grandma! She was no follower: tell her “no” and you’ve given her every incentive to pursue the opposite. She let nothing hold her back. She spoke her mind, opinionated and uncensored, and did everything dosed in a layer of love for her family and those around her.

Beverly passed into the Lord’s care Thursday morning, August 23, 2018 from her Mansfield home. She was 65.

Born Beverly Kay Howell July 1, 1953 in Canton Beverly loved to travel for each new adventure. She’d marvel at God’s creation, wonder at the ocean, and loved gazing at lighthouses while searching for life’s little treasures that washed across the beach. A sense of adventure was dear to her, and she taught that to her family. As one who celebrated life, Bev was the life of the party – always there til closing – and very family oriented, Christmas time was a special season to her. Though she enjoyed scrapbooking, crocheting and other crafts, she loved on her family though baking and cooking. Cherry and peanut butter pies, corn pudding and cookies were holiday favorites. Her heart was filled when grandchildren were gathered around the kitchen table making Christmas cookies.

A sincere woman, to whom manners mattered, Bev was patriotic, compassionate towards animals and just the sound of an Elvis tune automatically started her fingers snapping!

She enjoyed watching the Dallas Cowboys and Nascar, and motorcycling.

A woman of many talents – and master of most, Bev will be remembered for living life full and well with a rich full and deep belly laugh as her soundtrack.

Students of her “barefoot, do-things-my-way lifestyle” include her children Stacey Barnes of Lexington, Tracey Pifher of Grand Prairie, TX, Rebecca Carrothers of Scio, Dale Carrothers of Uhrichsville, and Leo (Danielle) Bradley of East New Market, MD; 17 Grandchildren; 16 Great Grandchildren; her mother Virginia (Stull) Moyers of Cambridge, MD; siblings Bill (Denise) Moyers and Bonnie (Ted) Abbott all of Cambridge, MD, Deborah (Jim) Carpenter of Chillicothe, Ronald Howell of Steubenville; numerous nieces and nephews; and cherished friend Douglas Warga.

She was preceded in death by her son-in-law Jerry Barnes, her father William C. Moyers and a brother Fred Moyers.

Her family will host a Celebration of Life Sunday, August 26, 2018 at 11 a.m. at Pavilion #2 of Clear Fork Reservoir (use State Route 97). Deliveries and flowers: 85 Mayfair Road, Lexington.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory may be made to Richland County Humane Society.
