Lola M. Hazlett, 83, store owner, caregiver

Lola M. Hazlett, a former caregiver and variety store owner, died Monday of heart failure at her Waverly home. She was 83.

Lola Martin was born and reared in Wayne County, N.C., and attended public schools there.

She moved to Baltimore in the 1950s and settled in Waverly, where she ran a variety store for many years in her home in the 2500 block of Greenmount Ave. She later worked as a caregiver until retiring about 10 years ago.

Mrs. Hazlett, whose husband died many years ago, enjoyed gardening and doing needlework.

No services will be held for Mrs. Hazlett, who donated her body to the Maryland State Anatomy Board.

She is survived by three brothers, Jack Martin and Hubert Martin, both of Goldsboro, N.C., and Milford Martin of Zubulon, N.C.; a sister, Margaret Gillespie of Wilmington, Del.; and many nephews and nieces.

Memorial contributions may be made to the American Heart Association, 415 N. Charles St., Baltimore 21201.
