    • SMITH, HAZEL JEAN

      With deep sorrow, we announce the passing of Hazel Jean Smith, age 95, at Fairview Mennonite Home, Cambridge on Monday, April 24, 2017. Hazel was a wonderful wife, mom, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend. Because of her huge heart, she always put everyone before herself. Born June 27, 1921, Hazel (nee Howard) grew up on a farm in the Hagersville area. In 1940 she became an elementary school teacher, first in Haldimand County where she started her career in a one room school house. After three years, Hazel moved on to Preston Public school and then later Dickson, Central, Lincoln and Stewart Ave. Schools. She continued her teaching experience as a music consultant for the Waterloo County Board of Education and finished as a remedial teacher at Coronation Public School, retiring in 1981. Hazel loved working with children and making a difference in their lives. Hazel was a sweet, fun-loving, kind and patient soul. She loved music, the theatre, travelling, vacationing at the cottage in Port Elgin and spending time with family and friends. She always saw the best in everyone and had a positive attitude about everything. Hazel was an active member of St. Paul's United Church, Cambridge (now Trillium United). She sang in the choir, taught Sunday school, and was active on many committees, including the UCW, often taking a leadership role. Her participation in the church was a demonstration of her strong faith. Hazel is survived by daughters, Janice Little (Peter) of Branchton, Ontario and Jane Ann Smith (Robert Lilly) of Cambridge; nanny to Krista (Thom Murray), Matthew and Cory and great-grandmother to Owen; predeceased by her loving husband of forty-two years, Kenneth and sisters, Helen LaFortune, Marjorie McKeen and Laura Heaslip. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Hazel's life will be held on Saturday, June 24, 2017, at 11: 00 a.m., at Trillium United Church, 450 King St. E., Cambridge, Ontario, followed by interment at Parklawn Cemetery, 750 Fountain St. N., Cambridge, at 2: 30 p.m.
