Miss Hazel V. Blakley
1915 - 1933
Hazel was the daughter of John (Blakey) Blakley and Jennie (Bartlett)  Blakley Lyle. Hazel was born on  January 23, 1915 in St. Joseph, Missouri. She passed away on Sept 16, 1933 in St. Joseph, Missouri.

Little is known about Hazel. From what my father told me, he was by Hazel's side when she passed. According to her death record, she died for an self inflicted wound. 

Story has it that Hazel was pregnant... I recall my mother saying that someone told Hazel to drink something to get the swallowing down on her stomach. The baby that she was carrying was said to have been a cousin. Some how the idea to have an abortion must have came up.

Hazel was single. She was a school girl. She was 18 years old when she passed away. Hazel was living at the same address of a Mary Gudgells on 1819 Dalton in St. Joseph, Missouri. Mary Gudgells was the informant on the death record.

Precede in Hazel's death by her parents, 5 sisters and 2 brothers. She was survived by 6 brothers and 2 sisters, a Step father, Chilton F. Lyle. Aunts and Uncles and numerous cousins. Hazel was buried in the City Cemetery in St. Joseph, Missouri. Here's Hazel's memorial on Find A Grave.
