Margaret Huenefeld Hamer died at the age of 91 on May 2, 2014. She was born in Cincinnati, the daughter of Alma and Walter Huenefeld. Margaret attended Hughes High School, graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University and then taught school at Terrace Park Grade School and North College Hill. She was a natural born teacher, remembered for years by her students. While at home raising her own children, she fulfilled a long-time wish to paint and enroll in Reginald Grooms class at U.C. Soon she became an accomplished fine artist, eventually opening the Mailbox Gallery in Glendale where she held painting classes. Margaret was an active member of the painting class at the Cincinnati Woman's Club and a 50- year member of the Woman's Art Club. For many years she volunteered as a Junior Coop at Children's Hospital. But above all she a devoted mother, "mom" to her grandchildren, a loving friend adored by many, with a delightful wit, unfailing warmth, and a soft- spoken leadership style. She leaves behind a son Dane Hamer, two grandchildren, Tiffani Hamer and Kaydee Hamer, and three great grandchildren, Alexis, Alizabeth Bentlee Hamer. She was preceded in death by her daughter Linda Sue Hamer, her granddaughter Jamie Hamer, her brothers Carl and Paul Huenefeld and sister Erna H. Fraser, all of Cincinnati. She leaves her sisters Lois H. Deane of Windermere, Florida, and Julia H. Beers of Milford. Margaret was an avid bridge player, a passionate Reds fan and happily welcomed the opening of Casinos in the area. She was loved by all who cared for her in her last years, especially Lisa Costello.
