Hamel, Peggy Margaret nee Hayworth passed away suddenly at home in Prince George on Thursday, June 9, 2016. Peggy and her twin Penny, were born in the cab of their grandfather’s pick-up truck on a dirt road on the stormy night of September 21, 1952, just west of Erwood, Saskatchewan. Peggy is survived by her adopted son, Kevin Hamel, Kevin’s former partner Nicole Lund; her five granddaughters and their children, her great grandchildren: Angel Nicole Lund (Daryl Leblanc) and Darius Warren Hartman and Sapphire Rose Millie Lund-LeBlanc; Angellica M. Hamel (Edward Douglas Mackie) and Elizabeth Christine Hamel-Mackie; Genevieve A.V Hamel; Jasmine Apawcollipse Virginia Hamel; and Jada Christine Hamel; three aunts and one uncle; her four sisters and one brother and two brothers-in-law; and many nieces and nephews and cousins in Canada, the United States, England, Romania and South Africa. Peggy is remembered by her granddaughters as a wonderful, loving grandmother who was often like a second mother to them. Peggy was lovable and had a great sense of humour, and was always there for her grandchildren
and great-grandchildren. They will miss her very much, but she will always be in their thoughts. Peggy was married just before her 18th birthday. She was a great organizer, particularly for various bowling leagues and other community organizations. Peggy loved children, and was unable to have her own, so she became a foster parent for children needing love and stability. After 19 years she divorced her husband, returned to school in Prince George and worked as an accountant until she retired for health reasons. Peggy spent many holidays and fun days in Quesnel with her mother and sisters and brother. She was generous, loving and had an interesting sense of humour. We will miss her very much.

Celebration of Peggy’s Life on Wednesday, July 6, 2016 at the Quesnel and District Seniors’ Center on Carson Street from 2-5 p.m.
