    Hazelene Hutton was a person who was fun to be around with. She was a giving person who like to please the people around her. She was also a intelligent person who could at times come out of the blue on subjects in history of many countries or classical music. She loved to cook especially for someone else. She loved the V and the Legion in Mitchell. We went many times to the Legion. Preferably on steak night. She really loved her mom Eula and her dad Roy Stidham. And she was loved and liked by many. She will be missed! And has a special place in my hart. So mom Rest In Peace! We love you all and thank you to have been a part of my life! Blessings Bavo ❤💋🙏😇.
