HAMMER, Ella Erna (nee Reinsdorf)
Ella was born in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, on October 7, 1922, and passed away peacefully in Maple Ridge, BC on December 23, 2013. She was predeceased by Fred, her loving husband of 70 years on January 7, 2012. They are now together again.
She will be greatly missed by her son Rick Hammer, and his children Wes, Brian and Alena, her daughter, Dianne Hammer and her sons, Peter Hinder, (Mitchi) and Ron Hinder. Many cousins, nieces and nephews, their families, and close friends, from all over the world will have fond memories of Ella.
Ella will be remembered for her ‘open house’, where family and friends were always welcome. She and Fred worked hard but found time to entertain, dance, enjoy music, the occasional Opera, and travel. She had much love for her family, and enjoyed being with her grandchildren as they were growing up.
A brief Graveside Remembrance will be held on Friday, January 17, 2014, 12:30pm at: Valley View Funeral Home and Cemetery 14644 72 Ave, Surrey, BC
A private Celebration of Ella’s Life will be held later. A donation to the Walk to End Alzheimer’s could be made in lieu of flowers.
