Hazel Marion Truitt passed away peacefully at the Pincher Creek Health Centre on October 21, 2017 at the age of 97 years. Hazel will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Karen (Jim) Burns and son Wayne (Terrie) Truitt; four grandchildren and six great grandchildren. Hazel was predeceased by her loving husband Dutch, her son Alvin, grandson Brent and her parents James and Bessie Anderson. Hazel was the second child born to James and Bessie Anderson and lived in the Springridge Area, going to school at Halifax. Times were tough after her father passed away and she did a lot of the outside work. When she was about 17 years old she went to work for a neighbor lady and cooked for a threshing crew of about 18 men and caught the eye of her future husband Dutch Truitt. They were married on November 21, 1939. Hazel and Dutch had three children Alvin, Karen and Wayne. They spent about 67 years together until her husband passed away.
