Hazel Evelyn Barnett Coffey

Hazel, born Jan. 29, 1912 in Leavenworth, KS died Jan. 2, 2008 at the Golden Living Center in Edwardsville, KS. She was the daughter of Harvey and Louella Mae Kimball Barnett. She was married on Sep. 5, 1933 to Walter Michael Coffey.

Please contact me if you know anything about Walter Michael Coffey and who his parents were.

Update Jan. 6, 2008:

I found Walter in the 1930 Leavenworth, KS census where he was a lodger in a boarding house and employed as a baker. He was 21 years old. Hazel, age 18, was still in her mother's home in Leavenworth.

I found Walter in Leavenworth in 1920 in the household with his widower father, James. James was born in Kansas in about 1849. He reported that his father and mother were born in Ireland.

Update Sep. 18, 2009

Hazel's obituary and photo have disappeared from the Leavenworth Times website. Please contact me if you have either and would like to share.
