It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Hazel at the age of 83 on March 7, 2011.
Predeceased by her husband, Johnny in 1979 and son, Richard in 1980.
She is survived by her daughter, Barbara (Grant) of Campbell River and son, Fred (Stephanie) of New Westminster, BC; brother, Wilfred of Penticton, BC and sister, Marjorie of Kingston, Ont.; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Hazel grew up in Montreal then travelled and lived throughout the US during his marriage before returning to Ontario where she remained until moving to Campbell River in 2002. She absolutely loved it here and could often be seen out on one of her daily long walks all over the city. Even after her stroke, she continued her passion with the aid of a walker and during her last hospitalization her friend Caroline and the nursing staff kept her happy with walking and cups of tea.
A very special thanks to the nursing staff of 3 North, Dr. Lebeof and Dr. Wilcox. Also a warm thank you to Margaret and Jackie Krabseth for making her feel at home.
A private service will be held at a later date.
Arrangements under the direction of Sutton's Campbell River Funeral Home, Campbell River, BC.
