Hazel Nilson, a longtime summer resident of Stone Lake, died on Wednesday, Nov. 20, at the age of 111. At the time of her death she was living in an assisted living facility in Sunapee, New Hampshire, where she moved in 2016 to be closer to family.
Hazel gained national notoriety in recent years for her longevity. A lifelong Chicago Cubs fan, she was featured on national news programs in 2016 when the Cubs won the World Series. She was believed to be the only Cubs fan who also had been alive when they won their previous world title — way back in 1908.
