It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Ariel Hancock in Ottawa, Ontario on January 27th, 2021 in her 102nd year.
Predeceased by her husband Thomas (Hank) Hancock and dear mother to Barry (Sherline), Eric (Jane), Keith (Michelle) and Morris (Mary Catherine and the late Patricia). “Nan” will be sadly missed by her grandchildren Kristina (John), Erin (Chris), Shannon (Marc), Heather (Jason) and Julie (Randy) and her great grandchildren Sam, Anna, Thomas, Ben, Zoe, Niomi, Isabelle, Madison, Paige, Ashley, Jackson, Brady and Coen. Ariel was daughter of the late Howard Kemp and Irene Vipond of Blackburn Hamlet and was predeceased by her siblings Morris (Grace), Eldon (Lois), Winston (Irene), Carl Lewis Wesley (Pauline), Kenneth (Marion) and Joyce (Jim and formerly the late Milton). She was a much-loved aunt, neighbour and friend and was not easily forgotten by anyone who was lucky enough to meet her.
Ariel had great love of, and dedication to, her family, friends and her United Church communities and always looked forward to sharing laughter and celebrating life’s occasions. She had an adventurous, determined spirit and a zest for life that lives on in all of her family.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Alta Vista Manor for their compassionate care during this difficult time. Due to COVID-19, a small family gathering and burial will be held.
In lieu of flowers, for those who wish to do so, donations to the Ottawa Food Bank would be greatly appreciated.
