Hazel Arlene BEAGLE


Hazel Arlene Beagle of Rimbey, Alberta passed away peacefully, with family at her side, at the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre, Rimbey on Wednesday, November 26, 2014 at the age of 93 years. Hazel was born October 26, 1921 to Minnie and Leo Herman at Lomond, Alberta. She had older siblings, Orville and Alice. They were raised on the Herman homestead at Armada and attended the Plateau School. Hazel also went to school at Vulcan and finished at the Armada School. When she was nineteen, Hazel became ill with polio – it was a very serious disease and she was placed in quarantine with three others, also inflicted with polio. She came through this hard time, and on January 17, 1942 she married Raymond Beagle. They farmed at Armada and raised their family of four boys. It was during this time that any “stories” are shared about living on the farm. In 1978, they retired off the farm and moved into Lomond. They kept themselves busy with helping at the farm where Jack and Holly now lived, helping drive grandsons to hockey, and Hazel also worked at a small grocery store in Lomond. In 1999, they moved to Rocky Mountain House where family members were living. Ray passed away in 2007, and Hazel stayed in their home until she moved to the Westview Lodge and then to the Parkland Manor in Rimbey in 2014. Family was Hazel’s love and joy – she could never see too much of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved all of them unconditionally and with all her heart. She was so proud of her family and when one walked in the door, she made sure you were looked after and had lots to eat, and she never wanted anyone to put themselves out for her. Her family always came first. Hazel will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her four sons: Gary (Donna) Beagle of Rocky Mountain House; Don (Joyce) Beagle of Victoria, B.C.; Randy (Beth) Beagle of Sylvan Lake; and Jack (Holly) Beagle of Rimbey; as well as ten cherished grandchildren: Raymond (Carol), Tarina, Brent (Joanne), Lorne (Rhonda), Raylene (Bill), Shannon (Kyle), Randell (Josh), Chad (Michelle), Kent (Kathleen), and Cole (Francis); and nineteen great grandchildren: Donna, Shawn, Skylar (Allie), Tahnee (Pat), Talon, Kaden, Kya, Kolby, Joelle, Bryken, Keegan, Keston, Kacey, Tavish, Cameron, Hudson, Josie, Coleten, and Bryce. She is also lovingly survived by her brother, Orville Herman of Brooks; and her sister-in-law, Miss Hazel Beagle of Rocky Mountain House; in addition to many loving nieces and nephews, and many others who lovingly referred to her as their Grandmother. Hazel was predeceased by her beloved husband, Raymond in 2007; her granddaughter, Tammy Nadine in 1971; and one sister, Alice in 1935. “My family is a wild garden, each seed growing in a different direction; yet all remain tangled together adding to the beauty of each other.” Connie Ekelund
