Hazel was born on the old homestead in the rural community of Harmatton, near Sundrie, Alberta. As a young woman, Mom ventured to Vancouver to live with her Auntie and Uncle. Later she returned to Alberta and trained as a licensed practical nurse. She loved helping people! In addition Hazel’s natural talent was in Poetry, writing many poems over the years. Some of her first works were published in the Winnipeg Free Press, MacLean’s magazine and later by the Poetry Institute Of Canada. She loved sharing her poems with family and friends, often reciting them from memory. Hazel always had a spiritual side to her. She loved the Bible and attended many different churches. In the 1960’s she became acquainted with the wonderful hope held out in the Bible of living forever in a paradise earth. She was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1968. Grammy loved to share her hope of everlasting life with friends, neighbours and others in the community, always having a beautiful smile for everyone she met.
Hazel married Wesley Enzie in 1955 and had two daughters, Rosemary and Heather. In 1976, she moved to Chilliwack, then Vernon in 1990, spending the last 3 years at Heritage Square. The elderly folks and caring staff will miss her.
She was predeceased by her husband Wesley in 1979 and by her parents, Bessie and William Siddon and her dear brother Albert. Her daughters Rosemary (Elmer) and Heather survive her as well as her grandchildren: Amber (Randy), Brandon, Hayden and Avery, and great grandchildren: Avalea, Emalea, and Ayden.
Many thanks to Drs. Smylie and Pestridge and all the wonderful nurses at Vernon Jubilee who did everything that they could to help Mom in her final days.
