Hazel and Edward Prestidge moved to Dickinson, TX in 1967 where they raised their daughters Theresa and Carla. Hazel most years was a homemaker while also owning and running the “Poly-Clean Washateria and Dry-Cleaners”.

Anyone who knew Hazel, knew that she had a passion for cooking and baking. She expressed her love by cooking for others and her family, who enjoyed her cooking for years as well. Hazel loved playing in the yard with her flowers and tomato plants, which is a passion that she passed on to her daughters. She loved watching the “Astros” and eating popcorn with her grand dog Dallas by her side, whom she would share the popcorn with.

Hazel is preceded in death by her late husband, Edward Prestidge, who passed away in 1997. They were married for 25 years, and her late 2nd husband, Charles Ponds, who passed away in 2011. They were married for 22 years. She is also preceded in death by her grandson Shane Sanchez who passed away on June 7, 2022.

As her daughters, it always made us proud whenever we went to Dickinson. People would comment how friendly and caring a person our Mother was.
