OBITUARY - ONA DELL "HAZEL" (HIATT) MERCER

Ona Dell Hazel MERCER was born in Gage county, Oklahoma, September 4, 1902 to George and Mollie (TACKETT) HIATT, and departed this life January 15, 2000 in the Mount Ayr Health Care Center, Mount Ayr, Iowa, at the age of 97 years, four months and 11 days.

As a young girl she lived in the rural area of Kansas City, Kansas. On January 24, 1916 she was united in marriage to Roy MERCER in Mount Ayr. To this union one son was born who died at birth. A foster son, Bernard Edward STRAIGHT, also died at an early age.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Roy, her infant son and foster son, and seven brothers and sisters, names unknown. Her entire life was spent as a farmer's wife or a farmer in her own right, living in Taylor and Ringgold county, Iowa, except for a few years as a young girl living with relatives in the rural Kansas City area.

Always thrifty, Hazel lived a frugal life working hard and industriously. She cared for her invalid husband for several years while continuing the farming operation. In doing so she gained the respect and admiration of all who knew her. With the assistance of the Ringgold County Public Health personnel she was able to remain in her own home on the farm until December, 1995 when she moved to the Mount Ayr Health Care Center.

She is survived by nieces and nephews.

Services were held Tuesday, January 18, 2000 at Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home in Mount Ayr with Reverend Scott MARCUM officiating. Nancy SACKETT, Mary TRULLINGER and Margaret BICKERS provided music. Casketbearers were Marcia SHOWALTER, Sue BECK, Becky FLETCHALL, Sharon CARR, Carol Anne GALLOWAY and Sharla NORRIS.

Hazel was laid to rest in the Platteville Cemetery, Blockton, Iowa.
