Aganetha (Nettie) Hamm (nee Hiebert)

1925 - 2017 

On Friday afternoon, July 28, 2017, at Salem Home in Winkler, MB Aganetha (Nettie) Hamm was ushered into glory at the age of 91 years.

Mom was born September 7, 1925 in Blumenfeld, Mexico, to Frank and Aganetha (Wall) Hiebert.  The Hiebert family immigrated to Canada when she was nine years old and settled down in Southern Manitoba.

She was baptized upon her confession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and strived to live out her faith right to the end.

On October 28, 1945, she was married to John J. Hamm and together they lived most of their married life on the Hamm homestead in Friedensruh where they raised their family. Mom and Dad retired to Winkler in 1986, but got busy in a variety of community volunteer positions.   Mom got involved in the Willing Helpers Serving Group in their church and together with Dad did church custodian work for many years. Other community volunteer activities included serving with the Harvest Maids, making noodles and serving at the Winkler Senior Centre, Salem Home Auxiliary, Palliative Care volunteer and working at the local MCC store.

Mom and Dad moved to Cedar Estates in 2002 and enjoyed getting involved with the many friends through Bible Studies, serving meals and sewing MCC blankets. Mom enjoyed traveling with Dad via train and bus and Mom ventured with friends to Churchill and even traveled to Belize to visit her granddaughter. Her gift of hospitality drew in many strangers who became close friends.

When her health began to fail she found it hard to be on the receiving end of care, but she drew strength from the Lord through her dedicated prayer life.  A song that helped her many times in her trying times was “Trust and Obey, for there’s no other way … ”.

She is survived by her loving husband, John with whom she shared married life for 71 years; one son, Jake (Carol) Hamm, three daughters, Anita (Allen Kehler), Kathy (Cornie Blatz), Betty Ann (Abe Dueck) and daughter-in-law, Isabelle Hamm, 14 grandchildren and 30 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by one son, John in 1981.

Funeral service at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 3, 2017 at the Winkler Reinland Mennonite Church with interment at the Winkler Cemetery. 

A special thank you to Salem staff, Wiebe Funeral Home and the Reinland Mennonite Church.
