HAMILTON – Nancy Jean

October 25, 1958 – March 4, 2010

It is with sadness, but no regrets that I announce my death on Thursday, March 4, 2010. I did not consider myself a loser in life so I will not consider myself a loser in death, therefore I DID NOT lose a battle to cancer. Cancer entered my life, I dealt with it and carried on the best I could.

I leave to celebrate my life my husband Carlisle Scott and my father Jim Hamilton; my brother Harry (Judy), his children Michael (Lana), Jessica (Dave Scholley), plus my grandnephews and grandniece, Brady, Reid and Jordan. I also leave my parents-in-law, Rae and Irene Scott, siblings-in-law Daryl (Cam), Sandra (Grant McKay), Wendy (Bob Petryk) and nieces and nephews Lisa, Brian, Kay and David.

I was predeceased by my mother, Marion Hamilton in 2000 and my husband Chester Schesnuik in 2003.

I was born and raised in Calgary with a ten year hiatus in Edmonton, then back to Calgary and ended up of all places in Saskatoon ! I spent most of my career working in the area of Dermatology. Before venturing there I did spend a year and a half in a law firm that led to an irreplaceable life long friendship with Jason. I spent twelve years with Dr. Sylvia Martin, after which she closed her practice and we founded Medique Cosmetics. I left Medique after five years and returned to Dermatology by being Clinic Manager for Dermatology Associates. Following which at the age of 47 I became a flight attendant for Westjet. Who knew they hired that age and this height ! I have been very fortunate to have worked with all of the people that I have. I may have had a shorter life than originally planned but I feel I lived it to the fullest. My only regret may be turning down French fries all those years !
I would especially like to thank Dr. V. Ramanna, a remarkable and compassionate physician, and Palliative Care Support, whom were outstanding. A most important acknowledgement to my sister-in-law, Sandra Scott for all her help – I couldn’t have managed without her. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made directly to the charity of your choice, make it a good one ! Bye for now.

A Celebration of Nancy’s life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Tuesday, March 9, 2010 at 2:30 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Nancy Hamilton, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403) 243-8200.

Offer Condolence for the family of HAMILTON – Nancy Jean

  4. Pat Byers & family :

    Nancy was my cousin and even though we did not see each other often you always have a sense of them being there. I remember Nancy as being a very strong person and always thinking of others first and I’m sure that she never changed from that. My prayers are with Uncle Jim and his family at this difficult time and I wish that I could be there but circumstances are preventing me. Remember the good times as that has helped me often with all of the losses in my life and our family. My heart is with you all today. Pat Byers
