Margaret HAMM

In Loving Memory of Margaret Rose Hamm.

Margaret, aged 75, passed peacefully into the presence of the Lord early in the morning on April 30, 2014 at Chilliwack Hospital. Her memory will be cherished and celebrated by her husband of over 56 years, William Edward Hamm, aged 77, daughters Carol Dakin and Nancy Wieler and son, Roger Hamm as well as her six grandchildren, Spencer Dakin, Bobby, Mikhail and Amarissa Wieler, and Justin and Curtis Hamm.

Born Margaret Rose Ewert at Steinbach, Manitoba on June 14, 1938 to the late John Tobias and Katharina Ewert, “Marg” as she was known to those close to her, lived a life rich in service toward God and others. Moving with her parents from Steinbach, MB to Sardis, BC in 1945, Margaret spent most of her growing years in the Fraser Valley. She began working for the City of Chilliwack in 1955 and married William on August 21, 1959 at Greendale Mennonite Church, Chilliwack, BC. In 1965, she resigned her position at the City of Chilliwack and in 1966 she and William moved to Prince George, BC where they lived until 1970. In 1970, the Hamms moved to Lillooet, BC where they were known for their sacrificial hospitality and outreach to those in need. In 1980, she and William co-founded Lillooet Full Gospel Church which they pastored until 2005, when they retired to Chilliwack where she lived out the rest of her life. A memorial service honouring Margaret’s life and love will be held at 2:00 PM on Saturday, May 3, 2014 at First Avenue Christian Assembly at 46510 First Avenue, Chilliwack, BC. Tea to follow.
