After a hard-fought battle with lupus, Melinda has entered a larger life with our God, where her songs of praise join a joyful multitude of those who have gone before. Her life of worship will be missed.
Melinda is the widow of Geoffrey John Hazel and is survived by her children, Geoffrey John Hazel, Jr, Julia Elise Hazel, and Brian David Hazel. She is also survived by parents, Robert and Pat Kehl, sisters Lisa Tenney and husband David, and Tonya Harding and husband Brian, and numerous loving aunts, uncles, cousins and care-taking friends.
A Memorial Service will be held 11 a.m., Friday 2/27, at Dominion Church International, 4411 Dallas St, Houston 77023.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers memorial donations be made to charity, which might include the Lupus Foundation or one in which she served, TeamsTogether.org
