Hazel "Nell" Gilliam-West
11/10/36 ~ 10/20/13
Our beloved mother and grandmother joined her Lord and savior on Sunday, October 20, 2013. Born a Texan, in Brownfield, her life was defined by countless others, including children, grandchildren, friends, and strays.
She is survived by four sisters, Lavell Lloyd, Venita Kincheloe, Glenda Treadaway, and Marla Thomas; her four children, Julie Harding, Jesse Gilliam, Mary Gilliam, and Malinda Gilliam; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Hazel was a retired med aide and caregiver. She was a relentless card player, a lover of God and others, and a shining example to those around her. She was a member of Central Baptist Church in Monmouth, Ore. She touched and influenced so many lives - she will be greatly missed.
