Dave Koehne from Pekin, IL

"To all of Betty's family - I will never forget this great lady. Being around her at "The Union Store" on a daily basis at the ripe age of 18 - 20, Betty instilled great work ethic to me. She led by example. She was fair. She was honest. She had great integrity. She left a great impression on me that I will always remember. I am so thankful she stopped by to see me at Velde Ford (Pekin, IL) with her daughter Marcia to visit me several years ago. It made my day. She certainly raised a good family. I will never forget Betty Hamann."

Diane and Garry Sickles from Canton, IL

"Dear Jake and Family, We send our deepest sympathy at your dear Grandma's passing. Betty volunteered at Good Shepherd Lutheran School in the 1980's when you were in my preschool class. She was awesome. She always let her light shine for Jesus. Diane Severin Sickles"

Nathan England from Cincinnati, OH

"Condolences to David Hamann, and the rest of the family on their loss. It was great to meet Betty during a few of her many visits to Cincinnati. She was always positive and full of energy, and loved by those around her. Even at 92, she is gone too soon."
