Tribute

Hazel Raley Moore, passed away peacefully from this life at home in the early morning hours of January 27, 2024, at the age of 100.

Hazel was born on July 30, 1923, in Merdian, in Lauderdale County, Mississippi, to James Harvey Riley, Jr. and Lucille Warren Raley. She lived most of her young life in Mobile, Alabama.

Hazel was known to family and friends as a charming and kind southern lady who lived her life with humility and grace. She accepted everyone with an open heart and a perpetual smile. She had an intelligent and constantly curious mind. She loved to dance and attended many ballroom and square dances. She loved gardening and always had fresh flowers and vegetables. She also loved to travel. One of her favorite places to visit was the mountains in North Georgia. In her later years, she learned the art of painting and produced numerous works of art for her family members to enjoy. Her loss will be deeply felt by her family.

Hazel is predeceased by her father, James Harvey Raley, her mother, Lucille Warren Raley, a son, Raymond Lee Moore, Jr. (Mary) of Spanish Fort, AL, her stepfather, James D. Hewitt and her former spouse, Raymond Lee Moore, Sr.

Hazel then moved to Robins Air Force Base near Warner Robins, Georgia, where she was employed for many more years until her retirement in 1989. After retirement, Hazel moved back to the Mobile area to be with her family, and her last residence was located in Daphne, Alabama.
