Hazel Lattimer, 98
Hazel Marjorie (Wilbourn) Lattimer passed away in her sleep Oct. 4, 2010, at Chardon-nay Assisted Living Center in Twin Falls, Idaho at the age of 98.
Hazel was born June 5, 1912, in Callaway, to Samuel Ferguson Baker and Amanda Zemora Overturf Baker. She had 10 siblings, most of whom were gone from home before she was born.
She married Guy Brian Wilbourn Aug. 9, 1927, at Gandy. They had three children, Nadine (Scott) McMaster, David (Mary) Wilbourn and Kay (Bob) Piva. She was widowed in 1962 after 33 years of marriage.
She met and married Guy Lattimer Sept. 14, 1964.
Mom always loved to golf, bowl, hike and tour through old houses. She and Guy loved to travel. They often took trips traveling across the United States and spent a few winters in Arizona.
She and Guy loved to take daily walks collecting fallen change that was then spent on numerous trips to Jackpot, Nev.
Hazel enjoyed playing pinochle or bridge with her friends and was always up for anything that sounded exciting.
Hazelâ€™s grandkids were especially blessed with a grandma like Hazel. They will never forget the countless walks to the park or her fantastic collection of jewelry she let them borrow at every visit.
She loved spending time in her garden with her roses and peonies.
Hazel was a determined and motivated woman even into her older age. She never wanted to miss a family picnic or family gathering, even after she became a great-great-grandmother.
After the death of her husband, Guy, Hazel informed the family that she thought it was time to finish her teaching certificate (at the age of 97).
Hazel will always be remembered for her adventurous spirit, her love of exploration and fun, fabulous home-cooked meals, pies and cinnamon rolls, her dry sense of humor and most of all, the love she had for her family.
We loved her dearly.
Hazel is preceded in death by her mother and father; her husband, Guy Brian Wilbourn; and second husband, Guy M. Lattimer; and all of her siblings. She is survived by her children; grandchildren, Lynn (Kathy) McMaster, Cheri (Rich) Schneider, Jamie (Tom) Martiny, Jenna (Josh) Laramie, Dale (Angela) Wilbourn and Dani Wilbourn; and numerous great-grandchildren
