Hazel Lipinski

In loving memory of

Hazel Ruth (Kells) (Fuller)

LIPINSKI

Born December 17, 1920 and passed away on March 1, 2009 at the Stuart Nechako Manor in Vanderhoof B.C.

Survived by sons Shane (Lorna) Fuller, Brian Fuller, and daughter Rosemary (Roland) Beier. Also by six grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her parents Tom and Anna Kells and her brothers and sisters Ethel, Bertha, Lawrence (Bud), Margaret, Lewis and grand daughter Michelle.

Hazel grew up on the family farm on Bearhead Rd. near Vanderhoof. She married Stan Fuller and moved to Braeside in 1941 where they raised their three chosen children. When Stan and Hazel separated in 1970 she moved to Terrace with the children, where she later met and married Charley (Ches) Lipinski. Ches and Hazel divorced and she moved to the Silver Birch Lodge in Fraser Lake. When she was not able to live on her own she moved to Vanderhoof. Mom enjoyed knitting and quilting. Some of her butterfly quilts are still keeping grandchildren warm and her memory alive.

Hazel’s niece Alice Berg was with her when she passed away at Stuart Nechako Manor. The family would like to thank the staff at the Manor for the care and comfort that they gave Hazel while she lived there and for allowing family and friends to gather there to honour her memory.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal;

Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
