She did love her traveling

first_img Sullivan loved animals, especially the toy dachshunds she had over the years, and the “big cats” of the wild. She loved red rose bushes and carnations in her garden. Every year that she could, Sullivan went to see the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena. Sullivan is survived by her husband, Leo Sullivan; a son, Leo Sullivan, Jr.; a daughter, Lorraine Brooks; three grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. A funeral was held on Tuesday at The Church at Rocky Peak in Chatsworth, followed by burial in Oakwood Memorial Park. Memorial donations may be sent to The Church at Rocky Peak, 22601 Santa Susana Pass Road, Chatsworth 91311.

Charming, affable and outgoing, Hazel Sullivan of Chatsworth loved the beach and had a zest for travel. Sullivan died Dec. 1 from complications of Alzheimer’s disease at age 84. “Her home was her work and making my father’s life happy,” said daughter Lorraine Brooks. “He adored the ground she walked on. My mom taught me what a good marriage should be. She was a gracious person, and you always felt welcome in her home.” Hazel Frances Tolle was born July 3, 1921, in Los Angeles. The youngest of three children of Henry and Dora Tolle, she lived on Avalon Boulevard, across from Wrigley Field, a baseball stadium that has since been razed. She graduated from Jefferson High School in 1938.

For 63 years, anything she wanted she got except that she wanted to live at the beach – Morro Bay. She always tried to talk me into it, but I don’t like the beach.” Sullivan frequented Malibu and Zuma beaches when her children were young and later visited the beaches on Oxnard’s Silver Strand. Another lifelong passion was travel. Sullivan visited all 50 states, in addition to Canada, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand. Out of all her travels around the world and on cruises, she was most impressed by her trip to Norway, Sweden and Denmark. She was an avid collector of tea cups, thimbles, spoons and refrigerator magnets as souvenirs from her travels. “One remarkable thing (about my mom) was that she never took her wedding ring off unless my dad took it off of her finger; he always put it back on,” Brooks said. last_img read more
