Obituary for Hazel Burnette Haynes

Hazel Burnette Haynes, 84, of Louisburg went to be with her Lord on April 12, 2020. She was born on October 4, 1935 to the late William Busbee and Fannie Morton Burnette. In addition to her parents, Hazel was preceded in death by sisters, Pearl White, Nellie Macrini, and Shirley Denny; and a brother, John Burnette.

Hazel started her long career with Belk working at Leggetts in Louisburg. She treasured her many special friendships made over the years. Her retirement from Belk in Raleigh allowed her to enjoy spending time with her family, shopping, cooking and caring for the many potted plants she was so good at growing. She loved her family, looking forward to the many special occasions she would cook and spend time with them. Hazel battled Parkinson’s with strength and confidence while being taking care of at Louisburg Nursing Center. Her presence and smiles will be dearly missed.

When the social distancing restrictions are lifted, Hazel’s family and friends will gather for a Celebration of Life Service to be held at Lancaster Funeral and Cremation Services.

Hazel is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Tim and Carol Edwards; her granddaughter, Rachel Weddington and Mitch; brothers and sisters-in-law, Eugene and Geneva Burnette, William and Mary Ann Burnette, and Calvin Burnette; and her sisters and brother-in-law, Ruby Poole, Margie and Kimball Finch; and many very special nieces and nephews.

Contributions may be made to Corinth Baptist Church c/o Julia Collins, 935 Weldon Road, Henderson, NC 27537. Online condolences may be made to www.lancasterfcs.com.

My thoughts and prayers are with you during your time of loss. I lovingly remember going to Belk with Mother, and buying children's clothes from Hazel. May your beautiful memories comfort you in the coming days.

I saw Hazel's obituary in the N&O and recognized her photo. My daughter is 29 and Hazel, while working in the children's department at Belks Crabtree, helped me to dress her in beautiful clothes. I loved to deal with Hazel and I remember her telling me about her granddaughter. I remember being sad that she was retiring but she looked forward to spending time with her family...and especially that granddaughter! My sympathy to you - I lovingly remember her...

I was so sorry to read of Hazel’s passing. I worked with Hazel and her sister Margie at Leggett's during my four years of High School under the leadership of Mr. Shearin. She was always so sweet to me, as was Margie.

My Prayers to the Family.

So sorry for your loss. I remember Hazel even way back in her Leggett’s days. She was a very sweet lady.
