Hazel is a Springfield resident that is sometimes seen at the Retirement Castle. She appears to be deaf.
She was among the women who pushed Mayor Quimby to create a prohibition law in Springfield. After finding out that the law already existed, the women then pushed Quimby to find a more competent police chief to enforce it, which caused Chief Wiggum to briefly lose his job to Rex Banner.
Homer got to know her after spending a large amount of time at the retirement home.
