Obituary

Hazel Yvonne Wilcox Vanlandingham entered her heavenly home on June 27, 2019 in Pensacola, Florida.
Hazel was born to parents Lillian and Frank Wilcox on November 22, 1926, in Columbus, Georgia. Her family later moved to Bonifay, Florida, where she graduated from high school in 1942.
During WWII, Hazel worked as an administrative assistant for the shipbuilding industries in Panama City, Florida and Mobile, Alabama.
After returning home from his military service on the Western Front in 1945, Woodrow Vanlandingham married Hazel Yvonne Wilcox on October 3, 1946. They had had a brief encounter sharing a taxi ride just a few years earlier and remembered each other quite well.
After their wedding Hazel and Woodrow settled down in Bonifay, Florida for a few years where their oldest son, Woodrow, Jr. was born in October 1947.
In 1951, the family relocated to Pensacola, Florida where employment opportunities were rapidly growing. By 1954 son, Steve and daughter, Kay were born.
In 1957, Hazel went to work in the Comptroller’s Office for the City of Pensacola. She retired in 1991 after serving 34 years as an accountant and chief payroll clerk. Everybody knew who Ms Van was, her name appeared on all their checks.
At home and at church Hazel was always affectionately known as Bubba. When the grandkids came along, she became Grandbubba. Why Bubba? When our older brother, Red, was learning to talk he couldn’t say mother. It always came out Bubba. So that’s when mother became Bubba.
Hazel is survived by two sons Woodrow (Linda) Vanlandingham of Fate, TX, Stephen (Patricia) Vanlandingham of Pensacola, FL and daughter Kay (Earl) Harrison of Pensacola, FL; her sister, Muriel Hallford of Augusta, Georgia; her grandchildren Andrew (Katie) Vanlandingham, Joanna (Greg) Ramey, Vikki (Scott) Jordan, Lesley (Steven) James, Ashley Godwin, Amanda (Matt) Fuller and Megan (Nathan) Hayes; great grandchildren Madison, Gavin, and Calin Ramey, Hannah, Sarah, and Jacob James, Mason Godwin, Clark and Lily Fuller, Mykena Jordan, Avery and Quinn Vanlandingham; several nieces and nephews; and longtime friends, Ron and Angie Jones.
The family will receive friends on Monday, July 1 at 3:00 with a Celebration of Life starting at 4:00 at The First Assembly of God with Rev. David Scruggs officiating.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to First Assembly of God Church or your favorite charity.
