Hazel Anne Jansen, 96, of Marshalltown, IA, passed away Saturday, January 4, 2020, at Grandview Heights Rehab And Healthcare in Marshalltown. A Mass of Christian Burial will be 10:30 a.m., Friday, January 10, 2020, at St. Francis of Assisi Parish - St. Henry Church in Marshalltown. Visitation will be 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Thursday, January 9, 2020, with a 7:00 p.m. Vigil Service following at Anderson Funeral Homes in Marshalltown. Memorial contributions may be directed to St. Francis of Assisi Parish and Iowa River Hospice. Online condolences may be sent to www.andersonfhs.com.

Hazel was born the daughter of Joseph and Amalia (Miller) Schrafel in Shell Rock, IA. She graduated from Conrad High School, and business college, and worked at Marshalltown Credit Bureau. Hazel was united in marriage to Donald Jansen on April 26, 1949, at St. Mary Catholic Church in Marshalltown. They made their home on the farm in the Haverhill area. In 1983, Donald and Hazel moved to their home in Marshalltown. Hazel and Donald were active in their Catholic parishes and Knights of Columbus. During high school, Hazel enjoyed marching band trips out of town and continued her musical interest singing and playing guitar on radio shows. Most important to Hazel was being a loving wife, mom, and grandma. She was a talented homemaker who enjoyed cooking, gardening, canning, and quilting. Homemade pickles and homemade noodles were specialties. Hazel loved her time with Donald, going for daily walks, fishing, dancing, and entertaining family together. She was so interested in the lives of each family member. Hazel's sense of humor, strength, and faith shined through. You could always depend on Hazel for a witty come-back. She passed along her love of life's simple pleasures while entertaining three generations of her family, always finding time to play cards or join little ones for tea parties.

Left to cherish Hazel's memory are her children: John (Jan) Jansen of Waukee, IA, Marilyn Leavy of Scottsdale, AZ, Jeanette (Pete) Karl of Altoona, IA, Carol Anderson of Marshalltown, Annie (Dean) Pedersen of West Liberty, IA, Emily (Scott) Melliere of Charles City, IA, Ron (Sally) Jansen of Marshalltown; 17 grandchildren; 34 great grandchildren (and one on the way); and sister-in- law Alice Nicholson of Marshalltown. Hazel was preceded in death by her husband, Donald, and son-in-law Laurence Leavy, her parents, and siblings: Rose Smitherman, Irene Kubik, Clara Hughes, Joseph Schrafel, Mabel Neuroth, Alice McKibbin, Doris Roberts, Albert Schrafel, Mary Jane Aiken, and Marjorie Dickkut. Also in-laws Doris Balvin and Joan Miller.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to Hazel's many care-givers of the past 12 years at Southridge Specialty Care, Glenwood Place and Grandview Heights Rehab and Healthcare.
