On July 4, 2021, Renee Marie Hazard joined our loved ones in heaven. She died at Holy Family Hospital where she received wonderful care. Renee was born July 28, 1966, to George and Darlene Hazard. Renee’s ancestors were homesteaders. She was the 7th generation to live in eastern Washington (Fisher Whitman, Co 1871) and the 5th generation grew up on the Hazard homestead on Wild Rose Prairie Spokane, Co 1884. She was proud of her heritage and loved her family both close and extended. At 18 Renee moved to Spokane and started work as a secretary for Tom Smith P.S. which led to a 30 year career with Stamper Rubens, P.S. where she was loved and will be greatly missed. Renee was gentle, funny, kind, and compassionate and forever curious about everything. She loved to explore before aches and pains slowed her down, often taking pictures of anything that caught her eye. She was very passionate about our heritage and loved to research genealogy, often sharing what she learned. Renee was preceded in death by her brother Lyle and survived by her parents, her brothers Greg, Eric, and Bryan, and her nieces and nephews Jestine, Terrin, Bethany, Garrett, and Noah Hazard. Family and friends are welcome to join the family for a graveside service at the Wild Rose Cemetery, NW corner of Monroe Rd and Hazard Rd. Deer Park, on July 11, 2021 at 10:00 AM with light refreshments to follow at the Wild Rose Community Center. Feel free to reach out to Eric at [email protected] with any questions.

The Summer Meal Program, also known as the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), was created to help ensure children have nutritious meals when school is out of session. The Summer Meals Program provides free meals and snacks to people ages 1-18. The SFSP is a federally-funded, state-administered program. Different organizations like Deer Park, Riverside, and Mary Walker School Districts, and Spokane County Library District sponsor meals in our area. Below is a list of locations where kids can receive free food. Have been recently updated as of July 26 2021.
