Obituary for Eula Mae Hazzard

EULA MAE HAZZARD

Eula Mae Hightower Hazzard was born in Muskogee, Oklahoma on January 3, 1931, and moved to Dallas as a young child with her family. Mae was the third of four children in a family born to Harvey Edward Hightower and Pearl Mae Seabolt Hightower. Their family tree dates back to the Trail of Tears, and Mae is registered as a member of the Cherokee Nation. The Hightowers were a very close family that all stayed in the Dallas area. Mae loved the large family get-togethers that occurred on each holiday, which at one point included 4 generations. She was known as the life of the party who made everybody have a good time. Mae especially loved playing games, and the family often joked about playing with “Mae’s rules”.

In 1951, Mae married the love of her life, Gilbert Hazzard. They were married for 46 years, until his death in 1997, and lived in Dallas and Duncanville. Mae and Gilbert raised 3 children, Cathey, Bruce, and Linda while living in Oak Cliff. Their family life included regular attendance at Wheatland United Methodist Church and an annual family vacation. They made road trips across the United States from coast to coast creating lasting memories for all of them. Both Mae and Gilbert were active in all their children’s school activities and were known by all their children’s friends.

Mae was a long-time secretary for the M.E. Moses retail stores and retired in 1995. However, she considered her main career to be a hostess for all of Gilbert’s professional meetings. As Gilbert rose in prominence in the electrical industry, Mae’s role became larger too. When Gilbert retired, Mae followed so they could enjoy traveling together.

She is survived by her three children Cathey Lowe (Austin, Texas), Bruce Hazzard (Boulder, Colorado), and Linda Sharp (Duncanville, Texas), and her sister Ruby Wolford (Dallas, Texas). She also leaves 6 grandchildren Nicole McKeon, David Lowe, Erin McQueen, Whitney Lowe, Austin Hazzard, and Dylan Hazzard, as well as 4 great-grandchildren Morgan Roark, Madison McKeon, Cohen Hodge, and Cheyenne Caudle. And Mae would want to mention the many nieces and nephews who filled her life with joy.

Mae is preceded in death by her husband, Gilbert Hazzard, her parents Harvey and Pearl Hightower, and her two brothers Karle Hightower and I.D. (Bubba) Hightower.

There will be a gravesite service on Tuesday, November 27 at 10:00 a.m. at Laurel Land Memorial Park in Dallas. Everyone will meet at the cemetery. A family visitation will be held on Monday, November 26 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Jaynes Memorial Chapel in Duncanville.
