Doris Jean Hazle



Doris Jean (Brightwell) Hazle, 90, passed away on July 8th where she resided at The Forum at Brookside “Ambassador Suites”. 

She was born in Louisville to Walter and Virginia Brightwell.  She graduated from Louisville Girls High School in 1950.  She attended college classes later in life.

She enjoyed academics, teaching her children, sewing, dancing, theater and was quite the financial investor!

She was very quiet, intelligent and of very strong resolve, thus her yes was yes and no was no.  Most notably though was her kind and sweet nature. 

She was Baptist in faith and held the Bible as the foundation of her family from generations to be passed on to the next generations.

She was the wife to Robert E. Hazle Jr. for 63 years.  He was employed by Ford Motor Company from 1954-1992.  She was the mother to sons Brian (Joan), Glenn (Rhonda), Gary (Debbie), and daughter Cynthia Kershner Duncan (Chip).

She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband and brother John Brightwell.

She is survived by brother Danny Brightwell (Ruthann), 10 grandchildren: Stephanie Wilding (Chris), Lucas Hazle (Haley Killian), Eddie Hazle (Lauren), Braden Hazle, Trey Neal (Carie), Kershners: Brooke, Logan, Kelsey, Caleb & Rylee.

8 Great Grandchildren: Lauren & Heather Wilding, Zoey & Gwenyth Killian, Everett Hazle, Brantley Burriss and Beau Kershner, Quaid Neal.


The family would like to extend our deepest and heartfelt gratitude to the staff/team at Ambassador Suites (the Forum).  Thank you for your vigilant and tender care but also for the personal love and affection given to our mother.  She loved you and was so grateful.
