Hazel was born August 18, 1922 in Aberdeen, SD to Alva and Lucy (Reisdorph) Wolter. Hazel grew up on the family farm southeast of Ipswich, SD. She attended grade school in a one room country school in Union Township. She graduated from Ipswich High School and attended Marion College in Indiana for a year before coming back to receive her Teaching Degree from Northern State Teachers College. Hazel was very active in church and taught Bible School in several communities including Richland, Scatterwood, Westport and even some communities’ west river during the summer months. Her lifelong profession as an educator took her to several country schools and small communities in the Aberdeen area. She finished her teaching career in Aberdeen. While teaching she enjoyed attending numerous workshops through Northern State.

Hazel had a deep desire to serve others. She had a gift of teaching and was a natural communicator. Her love of God and country could be easily witnessed in her classroom. She loved each student as though they were her own. Her demanding schedule and love for her classroom kept her busy updating her curriculum. She would often mention the hectic schedule which included duties common to elementary teachers. Hazel never complained about the workload and was happy to complete all assigned tasks. Her life was her work and she thanked God for the influence she had on so many young lives.

Hazel is survived by several cousins living throughout the United States.

Hazel was proceeded in death by her parents, Alva and Lucy, and one brother, Harlon Wolter.
