Hazel H. Deacon

Hazel H. Deacon, age 88 passed away peacefully on Sunday, Sept. 8, 2019, at Chamomile Assisted Living.

She was born on July 6, 1931, the daughter of Florzel and Hilda Myers. Hazel married Kenneth Currie on June 20, 1949. With this union, they were blessed with nine children. He preceded her in death on Feb. 1, 1969. She later married Martin Deacon on Oct. 9, 1971. Hazel worked as a certified nursing assistant for Central Wisconsin Center for 22 years, retiring on Jan. 30, 1997.

Hazel was a loving, caring mother who freely gave to others. Her kids came first in her life and she gave all of them the same opportunities, never favoring one over the other. Hazel was one of a kind; she believed in doing her best and always gave her very best. Hazel was a very meticulous homemaker; loved to dance, enjoyed cooking and cared for her neighbors, which led to her being very respected in her neighborhood. To know her was to love her. She loved her God Jehovah and was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witness on Aug. 7, 2004.

Hazel is survived by her husband, Martin Deacon; sister, Monica Blackwood; brothers, Owen and Lloyd Myers; nine children, Floyd (Kay) Currie, Leonard (Davia) Currie, Victor Currie, Owen Currie (Marcia) Maxine (Kerio) Currie, Roger (Ann) Currie, Reum Currie, Sheron (Terry) Currie and Marcia (Raul) Currie-Watson; 16 grandchildren, Nicola Currie, Isaiah Currie, Marissa (Christos) Constantas, McKenzie Currie, I-eem Currie, Junius (Lauren) Currie, Nikki (Josh) Dean, India Currie, Charles Anderson, Krisauny Grand, Kerron Grant, Nicolle Hill, Jamuga (Jessica) Watson, Imru Currie and Jael Currie; and 16 great-grandchildren, La’Zae Currie, Arianna Farmer, Jada Anderson, Maureece Anderson, Malachi Currie, Zhoie McGee, Elijah, Isaiah, Iailah, Noah Currie, Keila Watson, Kavion Currie, Michael Earl Jr. , La’Naya and A’Miyah Currie.
