Hazel laid to rest today
ONE of the region’s most respected elders will be laid to rest today.
The funeral of “Aunty” Hazel Douglas will be held at the Assembly of God Church in Mossman from 9.30am and will be followed by a wake at the Port Douglas Community Centre in the room which bears her name.
The room was named after Ms Douglas last year as part of Cairns Regional Council’s Women of Douglas dedication for International Women’s Day and it was her wish to have her wake held in the room which honours her along with a smoking ceremony.
All of Ms Douglas’s friends are invited to participate in the celebration of her remarkable life.
