Hazel Wilson

September 30, 1926 - March 5, 2020

Hazel Wilson was born on September 30, 1926 in Klamath Falls, Oregon. She died on March 5, 2020 in Portland, Oregon. She was the youngest of nine children of Walter and Elizabeth Frymire. She married Ivon Wilson on August 20, 1949. They had two sons Howard, born in 1958 and Clark, born in 1962. She was preceded in death by all eight of her brothers and sisters and her husband. She is survived by her sons and wives: Howard and Gale Wilson and Clark and Denise Wilson. She is also survived by five grandchildren and their families: Melina & Warren Cent, Lindsey & Erik Heller with great-grandchildren Brigetta and Wolfgang, Alex & Lorina Wilson with great-granddaughter Elowyn, Andrea & Joseph Bryson and Carissa Wilson.


Hazel moved to Portland in 1946 and went to work in the headquarters office of the Apostolic Faith Church. She would continue working for the church for 71 years, until she was 90 years old. Together with Ivon, they served aboard the M.V. Lower Light, a missionary boat,  and at pastorates in Yakima WA, Grants Pass OR, Port Angeles WA and Denver CO. She called Portland home and always looked forward to returning. She is remembered for wanting to get the family together for a meal or a birthday, especially as the family grew with grandkids and great-grandkids. She also enjoyed a quiet afternoon or evening with a good book. She will be remembered by the many that knew her for her steadfast dedication to serving the Lord.
