HAZEL FLORENCE LANE March 22, 1928 - September 3, 2017 Hazel F. Lane passed away peacefully on September 3, 2017 at the Victoria Hospital, Winnipeg. An amazing women, friend to all, she was dearly loved and will be missed greatly. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Edward, daughter Marilyn Barraclough, parents Gordon and Florence Windsor, brothers Doug and Garth Windsor, and sister Lois Hudson. She is survived by her children Louise Haar (Nick), Deb Mantai (Ray) and Gord (Wanda), her sister-in-law Donalda (Dennis) Bell, and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, friends, neighbours and her "family" at Sterling House, where she resided for close to five years. Hazel was one of Winnipeg's finest swimming instructors, hanging up her bathing suit at the age of 78, after instructing the Red Cross water safety program for 50 years. Hazel was born in Winnipeg and lived almost her entire life here, with exception of her high school years spent in Pilot Mound, Manitoba. Her talents were endless, her energy limitless and she could be depended upon to give a helping hand at a moment's notice. Funeral service will be held Friday, September 8, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. at St. Peter's Anglican Church with Cannon Donna Joy, officiating. Thank you to the wonderful caregivers at the 4 South, Victoria Hospital and her family doctor, Dr. L. D. McTaggart. Should friends desire, donations can be made in her name to Canadian Red Cross, Winnipeg Harvest, Victoria Hospital, or Canadian Cancer Society.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • Our deepest sympathies to Louise, Debbie and Gord. I have known your mother since our high school days in Pilot Mound. When we moved to Winnipeg to work we shared accommodations together. Ed and Cliff met while stationed overseas with the RCAF. After Ed had met Hazel they introduced me to Cliff. I was a bridesmaid at their wedding and the four of us had a wonderful friendship throughout our husband's lifetimes and continued with Hazel and I until her passing. Hazel taught all 3 of our sons how to swim. Unfortunately I was unable to attend the service because I am still in the hospital.

  • I was very saddened to hear of Hazel's death. I am a polio survivor and through these channels knew your Mom and Dad very well. Both were energetic, compassionate, fun-loving and contributors through music, teaching and many other ways. Their presence will be missed. Condolences to all of the family.

  • Hazel taught both of my children to swim - she was an excellent swimming teacher ! To this day, my son swims like a fish ! - Posted by: Wendy Winslow (Parent of a swimming student) on: Sep 09, 2017

  • Hazel & I met at Deer Lodge Centre where our husbands resided. We became very close friends from the first moment & remained that way for the past 12 years. Her obituary tells everything she was & you could add pages & pages more, & still not be able to tell you all of her accomplishments, & beautiful personality. She & Ed raised a wonderful family. Hazel & I remained close friends for the past 12 years as she was one friend in a million. I Love you, Hazel, & you will always be in my Heart. xxxxxx - Posted by: Connie Prynne (Very Good Friend) on: Sep 07, 2017
