On Wednesday, March 17, 2021, Hazel Lacoff, compassionate wife and mother of four children, as well as six grandchildren, passed away peacefully at the age of 80 years old in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Hazel was born on April 7, 1940 in Victoria, British Columbia to Hazel C. and George W. Walker. In December of 1979, she married Harold Lacoff whom she spent the rest of her days beside. Hazel will forever be remembered by her husband; her children, Richard (Deborah), Larry (Lolita), Grant (Irene) and Melissa (Kirt); her grandchildren, Bobbie Lee, April, Angel, Shayla-Lee, Alexis, Chloe; as well as her great-grandchildren, Dahlia, Serenity, Liam and Levi.
Hazel was an astonishing homemaker, her life's work shines bright in the effect she has had on her family, friends, and all whom was welcome in her home. Her greatest joy in life was always ensuring that the ones around her were safe and taken care of, always the first to offer help to family and friends. Her home acted as a safe haven for many who were growing up in the often times tough neighbourhood, she provided guidance and safety for not only her own children but their close friends too, that may have had difficult times finding security elsewhere. Hazel had also taken into her home two foster children as well as many others in need, which she always loved like they were her own. Hazel had a huge heart; her kindness and selflessness will first and foremost be remembered by all who knew her. This includes her warm-hearted kinship she had with her pets over the years, you could never find Hazel without her puppy by her side which brought her so much joy. Hazel leaves behind her dear puppy named Rosie, in the care of her husband Harold.
The relationship she had with her husband was a unique one, many thought it was the bantering that kept the excitement in their partnership alive. Hazel and Harold's marriage was not all hollering, it was also full of laughs, teasing, and even pranks. Harold had his fair share of prank moments, but Hazel's quick wit imbued in her pranks takes the cake. They always had fun in their marriage, whether that be with affection, teasing, even their banter had an essence of love to it.
Hazel had an unparalleled personality that only transfigured over the years. This was most apparent in her wittiness, strength, and quirky persona. Some of Hazel's hobbies included puzzles, crocheting, listening to Latin music, and her favourite watching and collecting horror films. She was a woman of great strength, unique hobbies, laughs, and unconditional love for her family.
A celebration of Hazel's life will be held between close family and friends.
