Bonnie Hammer, 1939-2019

Bonnie Hammer

Bonnie Lew Hammer left this earthly existence on Sept. 8, 2019, in the early afternoon, to be reunited with her parents, Archie and Eola; her siblings, Thomas Stocks and Lilly Noorlander; and her beloved husband, William Hammer. She was 79.

Bonnie was born Nov. 29 1939, one of nine children. Her remaining siblings, Mary “Martin” Gailey, Connie Dick, Dorothy Gough, Carol Mozaffari, Allen Stocks, and Alene Inman survive her.

Bonnie had an affinity for all things domestic. She had a passion for cooking and baking and decorated countless wedding cakes. Bonnie sewed clothing and quilted. She grew gardens and canned the produce for her family, who she taught to do all of these things in turn.

She was employed as a cook most of her life, but gave her time freely to her children, Vicki Williamson and Donald Bailey, and helped raise her grandchildren, Melissa McKimmey, Chelsea Olearain, Johnny Olearain, and Trevor Olearain. In addition to her children and grandchildren, several great grandchildren also survive her.

The family would like to invite everyone who would like to pay last respects to join them at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019 at Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Moab.

The service will be immediately followed by a luncheon at the Moab Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Stake Center located at 701 Locust Lane.
