It is with great sadness that the family of Hazel Marie (Alexander) Houghton announces her passing. Hazel was in her 95th year and will be lovingly missed. Hazel has a rich heritage in Lancaster as she was able to trace her ancestry through many generations. She was the daughter of the late John and Blanche Alexander and survived nine brothers and sisters, John, Eva, Glenn, Lester, Reed, Merle, Jay, Ruth, and Carl. Hazel graduated from J.P, McCaskey High School in 1944 and worked at Garvins and later with the Bon-Ton. Hazel’s greatest joy was that she shared 70 years of marriage to the late Theodore Houghton. Her relationship with Ted was special and she truly found her soulmate as they partnered through a rich life.
