Hazel Pitman Holderman

Hazel (Easter) Pitman Holderman, 93, of Greenwood, passed away Thursday, June 20, 2013.

She was born Feb. 8, 1920, in Ravenna (Estill County), Ky., the daughter of Everett and Provie (Brinegar) Easter.

On April 17, 1977, she married Charles Holderman; and they enjoyed their years together until his death on April 4, 1996.

Also preceding her in death was a son, Gordon J. Pitman; a grandson; and 10 siblings.

Hazel retired from Dow Chemical Co. She was a member of Greenwood Christian Church.

Well known for her “get up and go” spirit, she enjoyed dancing at the local Moose lodge and American Legion. Among her favorite hobbies was fishing on the St. Johns River in Florida.

But her real passion was her home of 67 years, with its well-kept lawn, flowers and trees.

She is survived by a son, Gordon J. Pitman of Greenwood; three grandsons, Todd (Stacey) Pitman of Venice, Fla., Greg (Christine) Pitman of West Hills, Calif., and Dale (Kelly) Pitman of Indianapolis; eight great-grandchildren; and one brother, Harry Easter of Cincinnati.

Visitation will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at Singleton Community Mortuary and Memorial Center, 7602 Madison Ave., Indianapolis. A private family graveside service will be conducted at Greenwood Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Greenwood Christian Church or Greenwood Senior Services, in care of the funeral home.
