Hazel Charlotte Henrietta Fellows

(nee Herridge and formerly Ward)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Hazel Fellows on October 17th, 2012 in Vernon, B.C. at the age of 87 years. She leaves behind many family members who will mourn her death. She was preceded in death by her first husband, Wallace W. Ward; her second husband, Stan Fellows; and her son, Norm Ward.

Hazel was born in Nakusp, B.C. on October 22nd, 1924 and touched many lives during her years there as she was well known to many in town. Her strong spirit, sense of humor and enduring devotion to her community will be missed by those who knew her well. Hazel loved to reminisce over afternoon tea about her adventures with friends growing up in Nakusp, her many voyages on the Minto, and the wonderful relationships she made throughout her lifetime. She loved the color purple, found joy in collecting “little pigs”, and took pleasure in admiring the view of Sadleback Mountain from her rocking chair in her home on the waterfront.

As per Hazel’s request, she was cremated and there will be no funeral service held. When taking some time to remember Hazel, wear something purple, sit and have a relaxing cup of tea with a friend and enjoy the moment!

As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Hazel to the Nakusp Historical Society.
