Florence Ellen (Suzi) Hammer was born in Omaha, Nebraska on October 5, 1927 and passed away on June 27, 2019. Suzi graduated with honors from Bemidji State Teacher's Collage (Bemidji State University) and married her collage sweetheart, Lewis Dale Hammer, Sept 2, 1950. Suzi & Lew were married for 65 years when Lew passed away in 2015. Suzi was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She played golf into her 80's with her son & grandsons, and was always up for a glass of wine and a game of Scrabble. Her dinner rolls and coconut cake were legendary, and her handmade, personal graduation quilts for each of her grandchildren will be cherish for years. She was a dedicated 4-H leader, sewed prom and bridesmaid dresses for her daughters, and cheered for Tim's many football, basketball, and baseball games. Suzi will be missed and loved always by her family and friends. She is survived by their 4 children: Holly (Kevin) Dout; Lea (Tom) McSherry; Nancy (Phil) Mitchell; Tim (Lori) Hammer; 16 grandchildren & 23 great-grandchildren. Suzi's family will hold a private celebration of her life. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to The Alzheimer's Association (alz.org).

What a lovely woman! I've enjoyed giving Susie massages for over 40 years. She always said she didn't know how people get along without massage. She was always a joy! The last couple years have been hard but her sense of humor would rise up letting me know she was still there. Much love to your beautiful family dear Suzie!

My heartfelt sympathies go out to your family during this difficult time. I hope the promise in 1 Thessalonians 4:14 can bring much comfort. Just knowing that there's a hope for the ones we have lost in death can be so reassuring.
