(When she was a child she was living with George and Loretta Eggett. I
never could confirm the exact relationship but she was known as Hazel
Eggett. I used to think she was a step-child but after reading her obit
I was wondering if George and Loretta adopted her. I just wanted to
clarify this for anyone who would be looking for her as Hazel Eggett
instead of Hazel Nichols.)
