It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother, Hazel Sinclair, affectionately known as Nan. She died peacefully surrounded by the love of her Family on November 29, 2019.

Hazel was a devoted Mother and friend. She was loved by all who had the opportunity to meet her. She was kind, generous, extremely witty and fun to be around, always smiling, good natured and positive to the end. A true Lady in every way.

She leaves behind her two daughters Darlene Sinclair (John Davies) and Deborah Sinclair; her grandchildren Nicole Sinclair (Troy Allen) and Ryan Gebauer; her Great-Grandchildren Alissa Challis and Weston Allen.

Predeceased by her loving Husband, Thomas Stanley (Tom) Sinclair (November 26, 1969) , her parents Alfred and Lizzy May and brothers Lloyd May and Alfred May Jr.

Mom was born August 18th in Shetland, Ontario. She joined the Air Force from 1942-1945 and was stationed in Guelph, Ontario. Following the war she married Tom, the love of her life. She was a proud Mother and cared for her daughters at home until Tom's death at the age of 54. At that time it became necessary for her to go out into the workplace. She was employed by the Federal Government at Manpower (Unemployment) until August of 1988. She loved her career and the many friendships she made there.

Hazel will be fondly remembered by the extended May and Sinclair families, and her special friends Janice Cake and Deb Doyle, She will be missed by her Church Family at Trinity United Church, Hale & Doulton where she was a member for 65 years.

She was a long time member of the Victory Branch Legion in London.

She enjoyed travelling, reading, painting, collecting flower pins and Engelbert. She was happiest in the company of Family and Friends.

Mom will be missed more than words can say. She is at peace now and happy to be reunited with those who have gone before.
