In memory of

  Bessie Hamming

    1919 - 2009


Bessie Hamming, 90 years old, went to be with her beloved Lord and husband on September 10, 2009. She was born July 2, 1919 in McBain, Michigan. She was preceded in ascension by her husband of 65 years, Kenneth Hamming, on April 19, 2007; sister, Jenny Bolkema; brothers, John Schierbeek, Peter Schierbeek. She is survived by her three children, Emily Campisi, Kevin Hamming, Mark (Marcie) Hamming; her precious grandchildren, Kenneth Hamming, Grace Hamming, Devon and Rachel Campisi; as well as numerous brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, cousins and friends who were all very dear to her heart. She was member of Seymour Christian Reformed Church for 40 years; Bessie's main focus in her life was her faith and her family. She was well known for her giving heart and her famous cookies, jams, peanut brittle and ice cream balls that were so good we got mad when she gave them away. She was a devoted wife and homemaker. She worked at Eastbrook Bowling lanes for many years running the nursery which filled her heart with joy to be around children. She also loved having breakfast at Sandy's Restaurant. The family wishes to thank the nurses at Breton Manor for taking such good care our mom; we know you will miss her smile and zipping down the hallways. Funeral service will be held Tuesday, September 15, 2009, at Seymour Christian Reformed Church of Grand Rapids, 840 Alger St. Relatives and friends can meet at 10:00 a.m. for visitation, followed by a service at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Bessie Hamming Fund, c/o 3980 Cascade Rd. SE, Grand Rapids 49546
