HAZEL ELLEN WELCH FOX


     Hazel Ellen Welch Fox, 81, of Eminence, Mo. passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, at her daughter’s home in Licking. She was born January 5, 1938, in Shannon County, the daughter of Louie Ray and Dorothy Lee (Edwards) Welch. 
  She graduated from Eminence High School and later in life worked as a seamstress, “root-digger” and “lottery-ticket-scratcher”. Hazel was known for not holding back her opinion and a knack for telling it like it is, even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear. She had a spunky personality and always made people around her smile with her quick wit and mischievous smile. She was also well known for her role as a cashier at Tim’s Bestway and thought of each customer as a friend. She was a wonderful mother and granny that treasured her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
  Hazel was preceded in death by both parents and four brothers, Lee, Ray, Lonnie, and Larry Welch.
  Hazel leaves behind her daughter, Jackie Slinkard (Larry) of Licking; granddaughters, Jennifer Ice (Andy) and Marcia Wells (Derrick) all of Licking; great-grandchildren, Sydney and Easton Ice, Calynn, Graci, Josie, Kohlbi, and Jaxx Wells of Licking; sister Viola (Gene) Nichols of Eminence; brother Anvil (Bobette) Welch of Joplin; son Terry Fox of Bunker and a host of nieces, nephews and dear friends. She was loved by many and will be deeply missed.
   Memorial visitation services were held Sunday, March 17, 2019, from 2 – 4 p.m. at Yarber Mortuary chapel, Eminence.  Condolences may be expressed at www.yarbermortuary.com.
