Hazel Jean (Janes) Rownd, 90, left us on September 7, 2015 with her family by her side in Port Hardy.

Hazel was born on October 15, 1924 in Vancouver to Ralph Victor Janes and Jane Russell (Robertson) Janes. Her father was a master plumber. Her mother was a homemaker and a talented musician. She grew up in Vancouver with her 2 brothers Russell and Tommy.

Hazel graduated from John Oliver High School when she was 16. She married Dean Rownd on August 3, 1945 and was married for 37 years and bore 7 children. Hazel was a homemaker.

Her interests included spending time with family, knitting, crosswords, Scrabble, reading, and spending time with her friends at the Senior's Centre. She spent much of her later years knitting toques for children suffering from war in other countries.

Hazel is survived by her brother Tommy, 7 children, 13 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild!

All who knew Hazel will remember her quick wit, fun personality, and thoughtfulness. She will be dearly missed.

Condolences to the family.

I remember Mrs. Rownd's Chicken Cacciatore. The Rownd household was always a meeting place for friends of the Rownd kids. Mrs. Rownd was the most tolerant of "Moms".

She'll be missed.
