Hazel Irene Puttkammer, 95, passed away peacefully at home on February 11, 2018. She was born on June 26, 1922, in Madison, WI, and was the oldest of 6 siblings. Hazel married Gordon G. Puttkammer on July 30, 1942. They had one daughter, Barbara Jean Peterson, born February 2, 1943. She was preceded in death by both her husband in 1990 and her daughter in 2010. Hazel had lived all over the country during her lifetime - Wisconsin, Indiana, New Mexico, California, Florida, and Virginia.
