Hazel Fleming, 96, died on December 12, 2016 in Punxsutawney, PA. She was born December 13, 1920 in Bell Township, Clearfield County, a daughter of the late Virginia (Johnston) Yoder and Norman Yoder. Hazel is also preceded in death by three brothers: Clyde Yoder, Norman (Clair) Yoder and Blain Yoder; four sisters Mildred Johnson, Mabel States, Esther Cramer and Twila (Gaynell) Peterson.
Hazel married Ray Frampton, a railroad engineer with the Erie-Lackawanna Railroad, and resided with Ray in Meadville, PA from 1944-1979. While living in Meadville, she was active with the Meadville First Baptist Church, and she served for many years as president of the Meadville area Cancer Society.
After Ray's death, she moved to Gouverneur,  where she married Everett A. Fleming. Hazel is survived by sister-in-law Violet (Fleming), the wife of the late Gerald Jackson of Oxbow. She will be fondly remembered by several nieces and nephews. Hazel had no children of her own. Following Everett's death in 1991, Hazel then moved back to Bell Township where she lived the past 24 years.
Although she experienced great personal tragedy in her life, she never dwelled upon it, preferring instead to bring happiness and joy to everyone around her. She loved to travel, and introduced many of her nieces and nephews to places they would never have experienced without her help and encouragement. She was an avd outdoor person, and liked to hike, fish, explore, and hunt and dug for ginseng. During her later years, she became very interested in genealogy, and spent much time researching Yoder ancestry.
 Hazel leaves a legacy of unselfish love, compassion, service to others and happiness that serves as a great example to those she leaves behind. Her entire adult life reflected the core values of Christianity as she followed Jesus Christ in her own quiet, unassuming, private manner. She will be forever missed, greatly respected, and fondly remembered.
A service was held on December 17, 2016 at the Waldron Funeral Home in Mahaffey, PA with the Rev. Melvin Cramer officiating. Interment followed at Otterbein Cemetery in Mahaffey, PA.
