BARRETT, Hazel Eileen (nee Payea) - It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of Hazel Barrett on Saturday, December 8, 2018 in Port Perry at the age of 94.
Loving mother of Stephen (Diane) and Brian (Linda).
Beloved Grandmother (Nanny) to Jesse, Sean (Tanya), Laurie (Patrick) and Great Grandmother to Aaron, Daniel, Aiden, Hannah and Sarah.
Aunt of Elizabeth, Rubert, Marie and Great Aunt of Rose.
She will be missed and remembered by all.
Born in 1924 in Kingston, Ontario, Hazel spent most of her young adult life in Toronto and later moved to Pickering where she raised her family.
Many of our summers were spent at the cottage in the Kawarthas, which brings back wonderful memories. Her later years were spent in Scarborough and Beaverton.
She loved to travel and especially enjoyed her winter home in the Florida Keys. For the past several years Mom lived in Sutton with her faithful companion Barney, an English Sheltie. Two years ago Mom moved to the Port Perry Villa, which offers an independent living option for senior citizens.
The family would like to thank all of the employees and care givers at the Villa, where Mom was able to live the remaining years of her life in a very pleasant, caring and friendly environment.
As per our Mother’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life for family and friends will be arranged and held later in January.
