Wooster- Hazel Maria Reich (Brauneck) Orr, 90, of Wooster, passed away Friday, March 25, 2016 at LifeCare Hospice.
Hazel was born February 9, 1926 in Wooster, the daughter of Edward and Lucy Sprankle Reich. She was preceded in death by her parents, first husband Albert Brauneck in 1979 whom she married in 1946, husband Delno Orr in 2009 whom she married in 1982, sisters, Lucille Means, Doris Grossman and a brother, Edward Reich, Jr.
She graduated from Wooster High School in 1945, worked for the Daily Record, and was co-owner of Brauneck Plumbing and Heating. She was a member of the Gnat Boxers Square Dance Club. She and Del enjoyed many years together square dancing, round dancing, and attending conventions.   Family was very important to them, and they attended many of the grandchildren ™s sports events. While living in Ft. Meade, FL, they were very active in the social events with their community center. She enjoyed life and always had a smile on her face.   We will always remember how happy she was when people would come to visit her whether she remembered them or not. When she could no longer take care of herself and had to be placed in the Assisted Living at Wayne Manor, she would remain active by walking the hallways.      
Surviving are her children, Terry (Linda) Brauneck of FL, Rebecca (Roger) Murray and Bonnie Kaufman both of Wooster; step-children, Karen (Alan) Hittepole of Worthington, Richard (Sheila) Orr of Wooster, Marcia (Dan) Carpenter of Holmesville, Karla (Kevin) Jewell of Wooster, Paula (Bruce) Myers of Orrville; Grandchildren, Bobbi (Denny) Bresson, Brian (Kelly) Brauneck, Echo (Terrence) Metz, Renee Murray, Robin (Mike) Rickett, and Ryan (Erin) Murray.   Step-grandchildren, Marly (Paul) Chidester, Nathan (Maureen) Hittepole, Douglas (Sarah) Orr, Jud (Annie) Orr, Toni Carpenter, Brent (Shannon ) Carpenter, Jeffrey (Jessie) Jewell, Jeremy (Ashley) Jewell, Katie Jewell, Lee and David Myers. Six great-grandchildren, seven step-great-grandchildren and a half sister, Donna Badgley of Mansfield.
