Hazel Saintz Obituary

     Hazel Jean Crotsley Saintz, 82, of Kannapolis, passed away Friday evening, January 26, 2024, at Atrium Health Cabarrus, following a period of declining health.

Born April 24, 1941, in Blair County, PA, Hazel was a daughter of the late Scott and Hazel “Pearl” Kephart Crotsley.  She was also preceded in death by her sisters, Marie Park and Dola Drake; brothers, Joe, Chester, Herman and Preston Crotsley; her former husband, Bernard Saintz; and partner, William Gibby.

Hazel retired from Cannon Mills after 25 years of dedicated service. Earlier in life, she had been employed with General Times of Davidson. In her free time, she always enjoyed trips to the Maggie Valley and Cherokee mountain areas of NC, watching crime and true detective shows, going to local festivals and working puzzle books. Hazel also enjoyed a good cup of coffee, and bread and butter was always a “good thing” to her. A loving and devoted mother, grandmother, sister and aunt, she will be greatly missed by her family and all who knew and loved her.

Family members left with many cherished memories include her daughter, Avis Munday (Roland); her grandchildren, Melinda Flora (Daniel), Sarah, Samuel and Benjamin Munday; her sister, Alice Horimoto (Harold); numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members.

Private services will be held at a later date.
