Dr. Hazel McCubbin PhD 

Hazel McCubbin passed recently from dementia. Hazel was raised in St. Helens, Oregon. Her mother was widowed during WWII and the whole family worked to make ends meet. 

Hazel excelled at school and was very outgoing. In her senior year she was voted Most Likeable Senior Girl at St. Helens High School and crowned “Queen of Hearts.” Hazel worked her way through college. At the University of Oregon (UO) she was awarded a scholarship for being a top female student. Hazel graduated from UO and married a fellow dorm counselor and they had four children. After a divorce she went on to complete her PhD in Psychology at UO. 

Hazel worked for Multnomah County Mental Health Services with the mentally ill, ran groups and counseled in Teen Clinics in Portland Schools. 

She traveled often and volunteered with Earthwatch doing research in India and China. In Rwanda, she climbed up to see gorillas and went on safaris in parts of Africa. 

Hazel is survived by her siblings, Audrey Oliver, Keith Forsythe, and Gary Milne; four children, Kristel, Marci, Tim and Douglas; two grandchildren Mariah and Keara; and three great grandchildren, Kateri, Cecilia and Lucy. 

She was predeceased by her father Ian Forsythe; mother Virginia Milne; and stepfather Clair Milne. 

Hazel was unforgettable and will be dearly missed. 

Hazel’s funeral is postponed because of COVID19.
