Passed on: December 14th, 2012

Hazel A. McIsaac (nee Gillam), 79, passed away peacefully on December 14th at the Bay St. George Long Term Care Centre finally losing her courageous 10 year battle against Alzheimers Disease. Hazel will be lovingly remembered and forever missed by her daughter Kimberley McIsaac-Bennett; son-in law Michael Bennett, her two grandchildren: Byron and Sophie Bennett (St. George’s); son John McIsaac (Calgary); sisters: Geraldine Porter (Robinsons), Christina Delaney (St. George’s) and Wanda Gillam (St. John’s). Hazel also leaves with special memories her nieces, nephews and cousins as well as the many foster children she cared for and loved during her life. She also leaves to mourn special friend Florence Young. Hazel’s family would like to express their heartfelt appreciation to the wonderful supportive staff of BSGLTCC. They consistently provided a professional, loving and personal environment for her during her 7 years residence there. With compassion and respect, all staff gave her the best possible care during her illness; at all times respecting her dignity. The staff on North Wing and Protective became her extended family and for this we will be eternally grateful. Also, we would like to give thanks for the wonderful home care workers, Betty Simon, Robin Bennett, Dianne Alexander and the late Ann Onaczyszyn who, through their love and compassion, extended the additional quality time through their support and assisted her desire to live in her own home for as long as possible. Hazel’s many years of public service, Municipal and Provincial, have been recognized by many. She was the recipient of the Provincial “Woman of the Year” in 2004, a nominee for the Governor General’s Award, and had a Provincial Ferry, the M.V. Hazel McIsaac, named in her honor. She worked tirelessly to better her community and her province and through her efforts; made a positive difference in the lives of many residents of the Bay St. George area. Flowers gratefully accepted, or donations to the Alzheimers Society. Cremation has already taken place, with arrangements entrusted to Russell's Funeral Home. A celebration of her life will be held at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in St. George’s on Tuesday, the 18th of December at 2:00 p.m. with internment at a later date.
