June 21, 1947 – August 10, 2018
With deep sadness, the family of Hazel Scheirer announces her passing at Abbotsford Regional Hospital on Friday, August 10th, 2018. Hazel was born in Herbert, Saskatchewan, on June 21, 1947 and was the middle child in a family of seven siblings.

Hazel met the love of her life, Ray Scheirer, in Winnipeg and married him on July 18, 1970. While in Winnipeg, they had two children – Wendy and Ryan. Hazel worked known as a nurse for 30 years. In her final years of nursing, she worked as head nurse on the maternity ward in Swift Current.

Hazel’s expansive medical knowledge, strength of character, and grace shone in a valiant struggle with breast cancer, which in the end, claimed her life. She is deeply missed by all whose lives were touched by her.

A celebration of life for Hazel will be held on August 16th, 2018 at 2:00 pm at Seven Oaks Alliance Church, Abbotsford.
