I've never seen this word spelled with _zz_, before. But the only person
that I've known - he died ca. 1963 - who had _hussy_ in his active
vocabulary always pronounced it with /z/.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
