Hazel Wyant gained her angel wings on April 24, 2021, at the age of 81. Family surrounded her in her Kentwood, Michigan home following a 2-year battle with cancer.

On January 22, 1940, Hazel was born to parents Harold and Vida Hess in Danville, Illinois. She was a 1958 graduate at Scottland High School. Hazel then moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she worked as a switchboard operator. She married Ronald L. Thomure and settled in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to raise their two children. On March 8, 1997, Hazel was married to Earl T. Wyant and resided in Kentwood, Michigan. Together, they enjoyed camping and traveling throughout the country, visiting many historical sites. Their favorite time of year was when they temporarily relocated and lived in Florida throughout the winter months. Hazel and Earl were members of several square dance clubs and members of the Michigan in Motion performance group. Hazel also enjoyed gardening, coloring, and reading in her spare time.

Hazel is survived by her husband of 24 years Earl T. Wyant, her loving children Terri Drake (Perry Johnson), Michael (Nina) Thomure, stepson Timothy (Elizabeth) Wyant, her grandchildren Anthony and Dallas Drake, Samantha and Zoie Thomure, Trenton and Mackenzie Wyant, brother Dane (Judy) Hess, sister Connie (Kerry) Simpson, and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents Harold and Vida Hess, brothers Floyd and Edwin Hess, sister Carolyn Hutson and nephew Gary Simpson.

The family would like to thank Mercy Health Lacks Cancer Center and Faith Hospice for their care and compassion during Hazel’s battle with cancer.

A Celebration of Life for Hazel is scheduled for 2:00pm on Wednesday, April 28, 2021, at Chapel Hill Memorial Cemetery, 2894 Patterson Avenue SE, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49512. There will be a two-hour private visitation for immediate family only prior to the service from 11:30am to 1:30pm at Ofield Funeral Home, 4500 Kalamazoo Avenue SE, Kentwood, Michigan 49508.

Those wishing to offer expressions of sympathy in place of flowers are encouraged to make a memorial contribution to the Ark Encounter at PO Box 510 Hebron, Kentucky 41048.
