Survivors include daughters, Janet Tiede (Tom) and Cathy Salmon (Steve); son, Larry Thompson; grandchildren, Charles McLoud (Linda), Ted McLoud (Diana), Ben Thompson (Brandi), Kim Pyron (Scott), Brian Salmon (Katie) and Ashley Moan (Jason). A graveside service will be conducted on Sunday, February 16, 2020, at 2 p.m. in Highland Burial Park with the Reverend Donald Nance officiating. The family will receive friends following the service at Mt. Hermon Baptist Church Fellowship Hall and at other times will be at the residence of her daughter, Janet Tiede, 232 Franklin Place, Danville, VA 24540. The family would like to thank Commonwealth Hospice and nurses, Jennifer Allen and Manekia Morris for all the love and care given to Hazel during this difficult time.
