Sept. 23, 1927 – April 22, 2015
With profound sadness the family of Hazel Parker regrets to announce her peaceful passing on April 22, 2015 at the age of 87 years.
Hazel was predeceased by the love of her life, John. She is survived by her children Marline (Larry), Collin (Iris), Joanne (Daryl) and Greg (Velma), grandchildren Craig, Michele, Laina, Mike, Brock and Christie, and five great granddaughters.
A pioneer of the Cariboo, Hazel arrived at Deka Lake in 1958. Being an adventuring entrepreneur, Hazel was involved in several ventures finally settling in Lac la Hache for over forty years.
Hazel will be remembered for her long term community involvement. As an active member of several local clubs including the Lac la Hache O.A.P.O., Square Dance Club, Pottery Club, and the Hospital Auxiliary, Hazel thoroughly enjoyed the personal interaction and camaraderie that came with community service.
The family asks that any donations, in lieu of flowers, be made to the B.C. Children’s Hospital or the charity of your choice.
A celebration of life will be held at the Lac la Hache Community Hall on August 22, 2015.
