We regretfully announce the passing of Hazel Esther Williamson on December 9, 2012.
Hazel McKay was born in Lomond Alberta on February 25, 1920. She was raised, schooled and lived on her parents farm in Lomond until WWII broke out and then went to help her bother Ross on his farm in Bow City. After the war, Earl Williamson returned from overseas and swept her off her feet. They were married in 1946, raised four boys which grew to 11 grandchildren and presently 13 great grandchildren. In 1964, after 17 years of working a farm in Bow City, they moved their family to Quesnel. Here she held a number of jobs, most notably as a floor clerk in Marshall Wells. After Earl retired in 1984, they did a little traveling, gardening, fishing, volunteering with the Legion’s Ladies Auxiliary. Hazel just plain enjoyed life, friends and being number one grandma to her family to the fullest she could; she will rest in peace.
A Celebration of Life will be held on December 17, 2012 1:00 PM at the Quesnel Royal Canadian Legion Hall with a tea to follow.
In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Foundation or a local charity of your choice.
