Rebecca’s Obituary Rebecca M. Hamel, 99 Long-Time Westminster Resident. Westminster-Rebecca M. (Robinson) Hamel, 99, died peacefully on Thursday morning, September 26, 2019 after a period of declining health. Rebecca was born in Stowe, Vermont on August 7, 1920.

Rebecca grew up in a farming family on the Mountain Road in Stowe. She had many fond memories of growing up on the farm and enjoyed sharing stories of her childhood with anyone who would listen. She loved the farming life and especially horses. Rebecca was a graduate of Stowe High School. She married Joseph Placide Hamel in November of 1940. They had one son, Neil Placide. Rebecca was predeceased by her husband in 1976 and her son in 2015. After marrying Joseph, she moved to Leominster and eventually Westminster.

Rebecca will be fondly remembered by those who took the time to enjoy her company.
