With profound sadness, the family of Martha “Hazel” Wilson announces her passing from this world into the arms of her Saviour on June 15, 2017 with her family by her side. She was 93. Hazel was born on February 17, 1924 in Michichi, Alberta. She was the fourth of 5 children born to Ruby and Seth Lawrence. She is survived by two of her siblings, sisters Inez Hartwick of Calgary and Helen Bullock of Creston. At the young age of 18 Hazel married Svend Nels Peter Wilson and together they raised a family of four. Gary (Heather) Wilson, Roger (Brenda) Wilson, Sandra (Courie) Unger and Marla (Harold) Walker. She was the proud Grandmother of 12 grandchildren, (?) great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. Hazel was known for her wonderful cooking and baking, especially what her family lovingly referred to as her “grandma buns.” She made the best buns in the country and we all just loved them. She was a dedicated mom and a faithful wife to Svend. On August 2nd they would have been married for 75 years. Hazel enjoyed Church, Bible studies, word games (she was very competitive), reading, gardening, desserts and watching Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy on TV. A number of years ago she suffered a stroke that left her in a wheelchair for the rest of her life but she faced life as it came and never complained. She carried on with determination, resolve, a sense of humour and a joyful spirit and she never had a harsh word for anyone. What a role model she was for her family. Hazel was pre-deceased by her parents, Ruby and Seth Lawrence, sister, Marjorie Lawrence, brother Roy and wife Gwen Lawrence, brother and sister-in-laws, Ingvard and Stella Wilson (Bedry), Jens and Laura Wilson, Ove Wilson (Della), Johnny Bullock (Helen), Ralph Hartwick (Inez), her son-in-law, Courie Unger and her mother and father-in-law, Nels and Ingaborg Wilson.

We are all looking to that day when we will join you in Heaven and will never have to say good-bye again. Until then enjoy your rest and joyful peace Mom.

In 1973 George and Gladys made their final destination in Salmon Arm, B.C. Gladys worked serving in several local restaurants throughout her years, she was known for her hard work ethic and charming personality. She spent her retirement years in Sunnybrae with George working many hours in the beautiful yard and flower gardens surrounding their home on Shuswap Lake. Gladys loved quadding, hunting, ski-dooing, mushroom picking, horseback riding, Gymkhana and of course fishing especially for salmon on the Skeena and trout in Greeny Lake. One of Gladys’ biggest loves in life was music and dancing, her feet were never still. Her passion took her to actively participate and volunteer for the community. She performed and taught line dancing, took part in several 100 Guitar celebrations, even dressing up for the part.
Gladys will always be remembered for the generous warmth in her heart that brought laughter and love to everyone she knew and met. She will be dearly missed by all her friends, family and loved ones.
