Sheila Marie Hazel (Rogge), age 54, resident of Sedro Woolley, WA, went peacefully to the arms of her Lord, surrounded by her loving husband, family and close friend on Saturday, December 24, 2022, at Peace Health United, Sedro-Woolley, WA.
Sheila was born in Baraboo, WI on November 30, 1968, to parents Edward Paul Rogge and Bonnie Gaye Rogge. Sheila was number three of five children.
Sheila is remembered by family and friends as generous, kind, non-judgmental, stylish, fearless, a bit twisted, dedicated, fun, loving, and a prayer warrior. She wore stylish hats and had a beautiful smile. She could make the craziest clothes look glamorous. She loved “cashmere” and wore it often. She also loved to go to consignment stores and purchase cashmere for anyone else she could. She could go to the dollar store and find a perfect gift. Even if her pocketbook was light, she never forgot birthdays or anniversaries and would always find some little gift to say, “I am thinking about you on this special day.”
Sheila did a variety of jobs, including surfacing tennis courts, planting beautiful flowers at fair grounds and parks, taking reservations for campgrounds, selling Avon and more. She enjoyed making jewelry, and creating beautiful paintings, using dried flower petals and jewelry. She enjoyed taking her creations to Saturday Markets and bazaars. She didn’t make much money but really enjoyed getting to meet new friends and see what everyone else was making. She would say, “I really didn’t make any money, but I sure had fun.” We would tell her, “You cannot make money when you give everything away.” She was beautiful and didn’t know a stranger. Some of us recall the friendship she had with a homeless man and his dog. She would stop and take them food and visit with them on a somewhat frequent basis.
While still in high school, Sheila married John McDaniel, of Poulsbo, WA. Soon after, daughter Monica Marie McDaniel was born, and several years later, a son, William John Paul McDaniel. They resided in Poulsbo, for 17 years, until they divorced.
In 2006, Sheila married her former high-school sweetheart, Dan Hazel. She became a stepmother to stepson, Dakota Hazel and a stepdaughter, Morgan Hazel. Dan was the love of her life. They enjoyed music concerts; classic car shows and meeting with friends for dinner and a drink. Sheila was hospitable and often would host a BBQ or dinner, for no reason at all. The kids’ friends loved to come to her house because she always fed them so well. The Hazel’s resided in Birdsview, Cape Horn, Bellingham and most recently bought a home in Sedro Woolley. Sheila and Dan were happy to celebrate their 16th wedding anniversary on October 21, 2022.
Sheila was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease on her 40th birthday. From that point on, Sheila wanted to help others better understand the disease and help to find a cure. She participated in support groups and fundraisers, to try to bring awareness and help to those who suffer from this disease. Most recently Sheila suffered with Congestive Heart Failure. Sheila endured much. She would say, “When you are given lemons, just make lemonade.”
Sheila’s greatest love was her relationship with God, her husband, grandchildren, children, family and her “very spoiled” dog Indy. These made her happy and proud. Her family and friends will remember her genuine kindness and generosity and her love of simple things. She was beautiful inside and out. Her smile, ever-present, despite her circumstances. She would always ask, “How are you doing?” and she would sincerely care about the answer.
