Hazel was born to Clyde and Grace Shoemaker in Colorado City. She married Bobby Dean Bradford on January 20, 1949. They traveled the country following jobs for Bobby. Hazel was a supportive wife and mother. She and Bobby were relied upon heavily by their families. They opened their home to multiple family members over the years.
