November 5, 1926 - December 13, 2020
Hazel Peak was born November 5, 1926, and entered heaven on Sunday, December 13, 2020. She was the daughter of Pete and Zina (Thomas) Monsour. Hazel attended St. Mary’s grade school and high school, graduating in 1944. This Catholic education was the foundation of her complete devotion to her faith. If you knew Hazel at all, it was very clear that her faith was always number one in her life. She attended KSTC (Pitt State) for two years and worked in the KSTC business office until 1952. On October 1, 1949, she married Charles Joseph Peak at Our Lady of Lourdes church. Charlie preceded her in death on January 26, 1985. Hazel worked at her family business, Monsour’s, Inc., from 1966 to 1992, when she retired. Hazel’s entire life was centered around her church, her faith, and her family. She was a member of Our Lady of Lourdes church, St. Mary’s Altar Society, St. Paul’s group, she served as a Eucharistic Minister, was a volunteer at St. Mary’s Goodwill store, and spent time tutoring young students at St. Mary’s Grade School. The students were all very fond of Mrs. Peak, who helped them develop their reading skills and gave them a listening ear. Hazel is survived by four daughters: Sherri Anderson (Ron), Susie Portz (Steve), Kris Trotnic, and Kim Verga (Bill). She also had fourteen grandchildren, many of whom followed in her footsteps in Catholic education. Additionally, she had 20 amazing great grandchildren! She also leaves behind her sisters, Barbara Bateman, Joyce Sanko, Vicki Monsour, and Della Monsour, as well as her brother, Ted Monsour. Preceding her in death was her son, Charlie, who was married to Joy Buche Peak, and her son, Dan, who was married to Penny Dollar Peak, as well as her brothers, Joe, Richard, and Pete Monsour. To know Hazel, was to know someone who was completely devoted to her faith and her values. She was the person who everyone turned to for prayer requests. She was either saying a rosary for your intention, or reciting her multiple daily prayers on an ongoing basis. Many people have given credit to Hazel’s prayers for enduring and getting through adverse times in their lives. It has always been clear that her goal in life was to find her seat in heaven, and we know, without a doubt, that she achieved her goal and has earned her wings. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 2 PM, Thursday, December 17, 2020 at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church with Father Michael Baldwin as celebrant. The parish rosary will be recited at 6:30 PM, Wednesday, December 16, 2020 at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church. The mass will be live-streamed and accessible on our website at bathnaylor.com under tributes. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you consider a donation to Our Lady of Lourdes Memorial fund, or mass remembrances. “Pray so big and so often that when God meets you at heaven’s gate, he says, with a smile, ‘Kid, you kept me very busy!’.” This reflected Hazel Peak beautifully.
