Hazel laid to rest to­day

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
