Vera Johanna Hamilton (Lehr)

May 1, 1927 - May 17, 2015


Vera Hamilton passed away in the early morning of May 17, 2015 at the Kootenay Lake District Hospital. Vera had spent four wonderful years prior residing at the Lake View Village in Nelson and felt truly fortunate and blessed to have such a beautiful spot to live out her final years. Vera was the eldest child in the family and was born in Medicine Hat, Alberta. She lived half of her life on the Sunshine Coast and then moved to Slocan Valley 41 years ago. She greatly cherished the people there, the different cultures, the food and unique lifestyle it afforded her. She truly found her home there. She is survived by her half sister Penny Wakefield in Roque River, Ore, and her 6 children…. her oldest son Bill in Tsawwassen, BC, daughter Linda (Bill) in Misson, BC, son Bob (Anita) in Palm Springs, CA, son Gordie in Gibsons, BC, daughter Cathy (Wes) in Castlegar and youngest son Brian (Karen) in Slocan, BC. She is also survived by ten Grandchildren – Kevan, Dalyce, Craig, Rod, Eric, Aaron, Kelsey, Brenden, Trevor and Shelby. Eight Great Grandchildren – Olivia, Noah, Dylan, Cassidy, Jorden, Fletcher, Georgia and Sydney. Many thanks to the Kootenay Lake District Hospital for her final care and to her many friends who were there till the end. All the goodbyes were said and she left us peacefully and happy. Vera was predeceased by her brother Fred and her parents Minnie and Andy. At Vera’s request no service will be held.

I’M FREE Don’t grieve for me for now I’m free
I’m following the path laid out for me
I took his hand when I heard the call
I turned my back and left it all
Tasks left undone and words not said must stay that way
I’ve now found my peace at the end of the day
My life has been full, I truly savoured so much
good friends, good times and my family’s caring touch
Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now,
