Hazel Lee Alexander Stewart Seitz
May 1, 1923 - March 28, 2020

CLAREMONT - Hazel Lee Alexander Stewart Seitz of Claremont passed away peacefully Saturday, March 28, 2020 and entered her eternal home in Heaven at the age of 96.

She was born May 1, 1923 to Earl Hoshaw Alexander and Ada Jane West Alexander Mock, who preceded her in death. She was also preceded by her husband’s Frank E. Stewart and Winfred P. Seitz, her brothers Paul Alexander, Hubert Alexander, Joe Alexander, Palmer Alexander, Jack Alexander, Omer Alexander, Earl Alexander, and her sisters Cleo Alexander and Rose A. Murdock Maron.

She is survived by her children Dwight F. Stewart and wife Tamara of Claremont, and Kay S. Kupke of Virginia Beach, Va.; her brother, Luke Alexander and wife Songki of Chicago, Ill.; stepsons Fred Seitz of Beaufort, S.C., and Kenneth Seitz and wife Dianne of Gardnerville, Nev.; eight grandchildren, Jason Stewart and wife Emily of Conover, Stefanie S. Cline and husband Melvin of Charleston, S.C., Clint Stewart and wife Stacey of Greensboro, Adam Stewart and wife Jessica of Troutman, Greg Stewart and wife Holly of Claremont, Lamar Stewart and wife Jessica of Conover, Daniel S. Kupke and wife Amanda of Virginia Beach, Va. and Laura K. Field and husband Alex of Virginia Beach, Va. She is also survived by 17 great-grandchildren, who all affectionately knew her as “Mamaw,” and many more in-laws, nieces, and nephews and long-time devoted friend Alice Williams, of Catawba.

She graduated from Stony Point High School and worked in the carbon plant in Winston-Salem during WWII for the war effort. Later she worked in a blouse factory in Statesville as a seamstress, Conover Glove, Pinnacle and Prestige Furniture, Mor-loc Medical Supply, and Oxford Elementary lunchroom.

Hazel was a faithful follower of Jesus Christ as a member of Bethel Lutheran Church in Claremont where she taught her children to love and respect God. Hazel always read the Bible and prayed with her children, while striving to live a life of love, care, and service to others. She was a hard worker, enjoyed public service, working on the farm, gardening, and growing beautiful flowers. During retirement, she greatly enjoyed traveling with friends, especially Alice Williams. She loved to help the shut-ins and visit the homebound and sick. She grew up loving music and dancing. At the age of 90, she was fondly called “The Dancing Queen.” Hazel will forever live in our hearts with countless fond memories. She now rests in the arms of her Lord and Savior.

The family would like to thank the staff of Trinity Village for all their loving care and devotion for the past five years.

A graveside service to celebrate Hazel’s life will be held on Thursday, April 2, 2020 at 2 p.m. at Bethel Lutheran Church Cemetery in Claremont. Rev. Eric Hollar will officiate. Due to COVID-19, a memorial service will be scheduled at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Bethel Lutheran Church, 5759 Bolick Rd., Claremont, NC 28610 or Trinity Village, 1265 21st St NE, Hickory, NC 28601.
