It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved mother, Vera Victoria Hampel, on Thursday, October 17 at the age of 68 years.
Vera recently retired from her 37 year career as an Assistant Principal with the Calgary Board of Education, where she touched the lives of so many children. Mom was a proud grandma who was with her family at every moment and every milestone in our lives. She gave everything to her grandchildren.
