Hazel M. Bryant, 85


Hazel M. Bryant (nee Gleason), 85, of West Bend, formerly of Crandon, found rest in God on Friday, June 24, 2011.

She was born on March 20, 1926, to the late Charles and Anna Gleason of Milwaukee. Hazel married Lawrence "Bud" Bryant in 1968.

She was active in her church and community, volunteering her time often, and had many friends. She enjoyed gardening, fishing with Bud at her side, and taking care of her home on Lake Metonga, sitting on the deck and watching the Blue Herons land on the dock, the ducks swim by and the eagles soar. Hazel will be missed and thought of often.

She is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Lawrence (Bud) Bryant. She is also survived by her two daughters Sandra (Richard) Ciotti and Nancy (Gordon) Smith; five granddaughters: Sheila (John) Anderson, Patricia (Joe) Harvey, Teresa Horvath, Tara (Eric) Beck, and Sarena (John) Lawrence; five great-grandchildren: Katy (Dan), Alan, Myles, Damien, and Erica-Jade; and one great-great grandson, Aiden-Daniel.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, July 1, 2011, at Cedar Ridge Community Chapel, 125 Cedar Ridge Dr. in West Bend, with the Rev. George Schowalter presiding.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are appreciated to the Arthritis Foundation Wisconsin Chapter, 1650 S. 108th St., West Allis, WI 53214-4021.
