Hazel worked at Genesco (Charm Step) in Fulton and retired from there. Never one to stay idle, she then worked as direct care supervisor for State Dept. of Mental Health North Mississippi Regional Center at Rosedale/Glendale homes in Fulton. And, she retired from there after 19 years.
Hazel was a member of East Fulton Baptist Church and senior Sunday school. Her delicious German chocolate cakes were famous at every church occasion.
In retirement, she worked hard on making her yard stand out with ornamental trees, hostas, hydrangeas, Bridal wreaths and daffodils just to name a few plants. She enjoyed being outdoors.

Senter Funeral Home has been entrusted with the arrangements.
She is survived by her two daughters: Sonya Johnson (Mark) of Mantachie, MS and Vicki Dennin (Michael) of McKenney, VA.
And Hazel is survived by one sister, Betty Barron (Ricky) of Verona, MS. Coming from a big family, she also has several nieces and
Nephews still alive. Saturday night family suppers at the Webb house will always be remembered with loads of laughs and good country
cooking. You never knew who might show up and Mama Webb would always offer them a place at the table.
Hazel is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, John Sullivan Benson and sisters: Louise Davis of Tupelo, Kathryn Ellis of Tupelo, Lorraine Lansdale of Blue Mountain and one brother, Lawrence Webb.
