Hazel Dean (Potts) entered into eternal peace on January 27th, 2020. One of 11 children, Hazel was born March 26, 1925 in Crestwood, KY to Willie and Bessie Potts.
Hazel met what would become her husband and love of her life (Steve) in the 6th grade and they married in 1946. She loved and adored him the 74 years they were married. She proudly worked for Minish & Potts Florist (her family's business) for many years. After retirement, she was a member of the Crestwood Civic Club. She was a devoted member of Crestwood United Methodist Church for all of her life.
She will always be remembered for her loving, giving and compassionate nature, for always putting her family first, and for all of the delicious baked sweets she loved to make and give to her many friends and family.
Left to cherish her memory are her loving family; her devoted husband, Steve; daughters, Joanne Taylor (Bill), Pam Flinchum (David) and Trisha O'Dell (Gene); grandchildren, Chad Collins (Joni), Ryan Fereday (Catherine), Steve Flinchum (Joy); 9 great grandchildren; three sisters; Dorothy King, Martha Long, and Mary Anna Stepp (Fayette) and two brothers, Billy Potts and Andy Potts.
