It is with sadness as well as gratitude that we acknowledge the life of Hazel Etta Spencer. Hazel passed on peacefully and with dignity in the early morning of January 14th, 2015 after suffering a heart attack. She was surrounded by love. Hazel is predeceased by her husband John-Fife Spencer and survived by sons Randy, Chris (Mariko), daughters Barbara (Peter Wardell) and Sydney (Don Cuthill), as well as her adored grandchildren Anne and Tait Cuthill. She is also survived by her sister Wilma Bibey of Montreal, brother Mike Atkinson of Edmonton and numerous loved nieces and nephews. Born April 7, 1925 in Pointe du Chene, New Brunswick, Hazel’s career with TCA took her from New Brunswick to Gander and then to Vancouver where she met John, the love of her life. Together, they worked tirelessly and very happily at the beautiful Aberthau Farm in Rosedale B.C., where they welcomed all who dropped by with open arms. An absolute love of family, an incredible sense of humour, a strong will and stronger friendships are some of the traits that Hazel will be remembered for. The family wishes to recognize the outstanding care Hazel received at Delta Hospital. All of you, and in particular Dr. Kordic, went above and beyond to provide only the best care. Thank you. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Beach Grove Golf Course at 5946 12th Avenue, Tsawwassen B.C. at 1:30 p.m. on Friday January 30, 2015. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Delta Hospital Foundation.
Have a dance with “The Duke” for us “Leader.” We miss you Mom. Peace, love and light, God bless.
