Sarah E. Hazzard

Sarah E. Hazzard answered the call from God, her father, and went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on September 9, 2013.

Our beloved mother was born on June 12, 1939 in Wilcox County, Alabama to the union of Flate McCants and Sarah E. Knight. She was introduced to Christ at an early age and became a member of the Pine Flat Baptist Church in Hybart, Alabama. As a young adult she met and married Willie C. Hazzard. After the passing of her husband, her life''s journey took her to places such as Mobile, Alabama and Akron, Ohio. As a resident of the Akron area, she was employed for several years by Uniwear Industrial Laundry Service, The Jewish Center, and in her later years she took joy in being a Foster Grandparent for Akron Summit Community Action (Calico, Ctr.).
