Hazel Marie Cannon Moreland passed away at Clear Lake Hospital on Monday, August 7, 2017, surrounded by her beloved family.
A longtime resident of Texas City, she was born on December 10, 1919, to Charlie and Lela Cannon in Seminole, Oklahoma.
When she was 19, Hazel married her sweetheart Troy Moreland on March 23, 1939, in Seminole, Oklahoma. Together, they faced the conflict of World War II as they traveled to Troy’s Navy assignments overseas. Later, Troy was hired by Union Carbide and the couple moved first to Spring Branch, Texas, and then to Texas City, Texas. The couple made lifelong friends through their work with the Chamber of Commerce, the Elks Club where Troy was an Exalted Ruler, and the RV Club of Airstream Owners. Hazel and Troy spent many wonderful days in their Airstream overlooking Lake Sam Rayburn and traveling throughout the U. S. with the Airstream Club and with family on adventures all over the world. Hazel devoted her life to her family and her church.
