Hazel Jean Watson Allred

January 8, 1942 — April 10, 2023


Hazel Jean Watson Allred of Syracuse, Utah passed away peacefully at home in the presence of family on Monday, April 10, 2023. She was 81 years old. Jean was born on January 8, 1942, to L. Dee and Joyce Watson in Cedar City, Utah and was the second of five siblings: Paul, Jean, Kent, Collin, and Douglas. Jean was both the spiritual and loving center of her home.


Jean attended the College of Southern Utah and Utah State University for her undergraduate studies and Brigham Young University for a Master’s degree. She was the valedictorian of her graduating class at USU. She put her talents for Home Economics to use every day taking care of others. Jean wore the title of mother proudly. She worked as a homemaker for 19 years until her oldest was preparing to leave on a mission and then went back to work as a teacher at West Point Elementary.


There are hundreds of kids from West Point who can say they were loved and taught by Mrs. Allred. She received numerous awards for her teaching prowess including Teacher of the Year from the Utah Education Association. A life-long member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Jean held many leadership callings in the Relief Society and Primary, but none more important than serving with John in the Cub Scouts. Her scouts were taught well and knew they were loved.


Mom took care of the family providing meals, making clothing and costumes, holding regular family home evening, and making it a peaceful place to live. During the holidays, Jean made sure that her kids had an opportunity to serve. She loved planning the 12-Days-of-Christmas deliveries for the kids to drop on the doorstep and then run screaming back to the car.


Jean loved her grandkids and spent countless hours planting jellybeans that turned into suckers, planning Easter Egg Hunts, reading books, teaching five-minute school, blowing thousands of gallons of bubbles, painting crafts, and building volcano science projects. She never missed a birthday card, and each year found a book to be shared on Thanksgiving for the holiday season.


Anyone who knew John, knew that 1) he did not like to be without ‘Red’ for long, and 2) that when he got his nose in the wind and headed somewhere you got in the truck, or you got left. Seems Jean knew this better than anyone and didn’t want to miss the chance to be by his side.


Jean is survived by brothers, Kent Dee Watson (Connie), and Dr. Douglas R Watson (Nancy); sisters-in-law, Linda (Paul) and Nancy (Colin); her children Dr. John David Allred (Caridee), Dr. Michael Glade Allred (Maria), Maryn Cook (Eric), and Alaina Allred; and 16 grandchildren. She was preceded in death by the love of her life just days ago, John; her father, L. Dee; mother, Joyce; and brothers, Paul and Colin. We are confident that she is enjoying joyous reunions with family and friends.


We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Hospice and Right at Home nurses and aides who took such good care of Mom over the past years.


A graveside service will be held on 2:00pm Thursday, April 13, 2023, at West Point City Cemetery, 80 North 4000 West, West Point, Utah 84015. Family and friends are invited to pay their respects. Services entrusted to Lindquist’s Syracuse Mortuary, 869 South 2000 West, Syracuse, Utah 84075.

In lieu of flowers, Mom would prefer you get the kids and grandkids together and spend the afternoon making memories. We know the grandkids in our family are grateful for their memories of their loving grandma.
