When Ralph Wenthold returned from the Battle of the Bulge wounded and frostbitten on March 20, 1945, Hazel and her husband of 65 years were wedded in Canute. She had traveled to several Marian Apparition locations in France, Belgium, and Mexico and was a devout Catholic. She relished spending the holidays with her extended family.
