Hazel Maxine (Richardson) Hope, age 87 of Ferris, Texas, passed away August 25, 2020. She was born in October of 1932 to the late Abner Zeke and Sue (Hiser) Richardson in Dallas, Texas. As a young adult she went on a blind date with Mr. Willie Dee Hope, they were later married on November 15, 1952 in Hutchins, Texas and spent 64 wonderful years together. Over the years she worked as a receptionist in Doctor's offices and was also the bookkeeper for the family business: Willie Hope Construction. Hazel was always helping others with their needs, be it a loan of money or the use of her car. She is remembered for putting together and sending care packages to soldiers over seas and many times coordinating church events and preparing meals for those in need. She is a charter member of New Beginnings Bible Church in Ferris, Texas. Her love and dedication to her church and church family was unparalleled. Often she could be found praying at the church before services, anointing each doorway that others who enter might be blessed. She enjoyed quilting, sitting down with a good puzzle and cooking for her family. Her coconut cream and chocolate cream pies, especially at holiday time, will be missed.
