1930 – 2016
AUBURN — Hazel B. Moore, 85, of Lewiston, passed away peacefully at the Hospice House on Sunday, June 19, with her loving family by her side.
She was born in Poland on Aug. 22, 1930, the daughter of Earl and Helen (Worthley) Bailey.
Hazel graduated from Edward Little High School, where she was lovingly referred to as “Blondie.” She was an amazing, strong and beautiful woman loved by many. Hazel worked hard all her life. Her career consisted of working in local grocery stores and restaurants as well as a nanny to the Douglas family. She was well-known for always having a bright and cheery smile for everyone she met.
Hazel’s prized accomplishment was her family. There was never a day that went by when you would not hear a cute, funny or proud story of a time that Mom/Gram/Kitty Gram/GG had recently spent with her family. All loved and adored her. She loved afternoons at the beach, her cat Shadow and going out to eat. It was not uncommon to find her spending Sunday afternoons with two of her beautiful great-granddaughters, Jennifer and Vanessa. We wish our youngest member of the family, Harvey, would have had the opportunity to learn from her infinite wisdom and undying love.
With sad hearts she leaves behind her children, Patricia Cyr of Lisbon, Jeanne and husband, Dennis Keene, of Durham, Linda and husband, Charlie Watson, of Sabattus, and Stephen Moore of Lewiston. She also leaves nine grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.
Surviving siblings are Richard Bailey and wife, Janet, of Texas, Charlie Bailey of Mechanic Falls, and Paul Bailey and wife, Donna, of Northern Maine; as well as many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by daughter, Carol Goupil; her parents; siblings, Doris Whittaker, Patricia Kyllonen, and Earl Bailey Jr.; and several nieces and nephews.
The family would like to send sincere and special thanks to the staff and volunteers at the Hospice House for their passion and commitment to supporting Hazel and her family through her final journey. We will forever be grateful for the dignity and respect she received during this difficult time.
