Bonnie Lew Hammer
Born: 11/29/1939, Moab, Utah
She was 79 years old when she passed.
Bonnie was born on November, 29 1939, one of nine children. She is survived by her remaining siblings, Mary “Martin” Gailey, Connie Dick, Dorothy Gough, Carol Mozaffari, Allen Stocks, and Alene Inman.
Bonnie had an affinity for all things domestic. She had a passion for cooking and baked 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, she is also survived by several great-grandchildren.
The family would like to invite everyone who would like to pay last respects to join them on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Moab, Utah at 2:00 PM. The service will be immediately followed by a luncheon at the Moab LDS Stake Center located at 701 Locust Lane.
Tributes:Pretty Lady, I remember you from your teen-age years! Always smiling, and lifting the hearts of folks you came into contact with. You will be missed by many, but I know you must make that Flight to the others who await your arrival. Warmth and love go with you and angels attend you. Love always.
- Lurell Stocks BaileyBonnie was a special sister. She worked hard, was honest, and care about other peoples and helped them when she could. She was a great cook. She made beautiful cakes. This is a poem she shared with me many years ago. "Be kind to the poor" Children's Friend of 1863 The Crust "Waste not - want not" I must not throw upon the floor The crust I cannot eat, There's many a hungry little one Would think it quite a treat. My parents take the kindest care To get me wholesome food, And so I must not waste a bit That would do others good. The corn from which my bread is made, God causes it to grow; How sad to waste what He has given: He would both see and know. 'Tis wilful waste brings woeful want, And I may live to say, Oh, how I wish I had that bread Which once I threw away. Sorry for the loss to all of us, her family, her siblings, and her many friends.
- Mary S Martin/Gailey
