Hazel Clair Dwoskin passed away October 12 after a short illness. Hazel was born and raised in Seattle, graduated from Broadway High School, and attended Mills College. Hazel was 99-years young and lived a full and rich life with her husband Joseph Dwoskin until his death in 1992. Together they expanded the Hugo Loewy Co., a family-led wholesale women’s wear company created by her father. She was the loving mother of her six children, a generous and caring matriarch and the glue that held her family together. She was vigorous and vibrant, a no-nonsense take charge person until her last breath. After living in Magnolia for over 50 years, Hazel returned to Capitol Hill and was an original resident of the Summit at First Hill, where she strived to promote the traditions of liberal Judaism. There she made new friends with residents and staff and renewed long-time friendships that she cherished. Like her parents, Hugo and Hazel Loewy, she was a long-time supporter of the Kline Galland Organization and the Jewish Community of Seattle.
Hazel is survived by her children Lois Suwol (Harvey), Carol Masnik, Steve (Janet), Paul (Marc), Dorothy (Mark), and Robert (Phoebe) and grandchildren Andrew, Julia Masnik (Conor), Preston and Colby, and great granddaughter Sunny.
