Hamel, Clarisse Charlotte (nee Skipper)

On the Holiest weekend of the year, a loving and caring wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and great grandmother, was called home to heaven on Saturday, April 15, 2017 at the age of 90 years. On that date, she was greeted by her husband Creighton Joseph Hamel (December 1991), and her parents, Dr. Sydney Skipper (May 1959) and Elizabeth (Betty) Skipper (December 1988). Survived by daughter Jane Anne Sheppard (Bill). Clarisse was so loved by her grandson Craig (Jane) and her great grandchildren Kai and Nina from Banff, Alberta. They loved their G.G. She will be missed by her friends on and from Pelee Island and Leamington. Clarisse spent the majority of her life on Pelee Island. It is fair to say, it was the only place she ever called home. It was so close to her heart, a true Pelee Islander. All the staff that worked on the Third Floor at the Leamington Mennonite Home were so very caring over the four and a half years Mum lived there. A special thank you to a wonderful Docter, Randy Holloway. Cremation has taken place. A Memorial Service will take place at a later date at St. Mary’s Anglican Church on Pelee Island. The church held so many memories for our family. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Leamington Mennonite Home or a charity of your choice by contacting the Reid Funeral Home & Reception Centre, 14 Russell Street, Leamington (519-326-2631).
