Violet Hamann

June 9, 1924 — May 23, 2017

Violet Hamann, age 92, Sheboygan, went home to her Lord and Savior on Tuesday evening, May 23, 2017 at St. Nicholas Hospital.
She was born June 9, 1924 in Sheboygan to Herman and Augusta (Athorp) Kimme. She was baptized and confirmed at Trinity Lutheran Church. On June 28, 1942 Violet and Edwin were united in marriage at the home of Violet's parents. After nearly sixty-four years of marriage, Edwin preceded her in death in March of 2006.
Violet and Edwin purchased the family homestead in 1945, actively dairy farming until 1982. For many years they operated Hamann's orchard which included apples, cider, raspberries, strawberries and assorted garden vegetables. Violet was a hardworking, devoted homemaker to her family. In later years she was employed at Morningside Health Center.
Violet was a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Haven where she taught Sunday school and was a member of Grace Service Guild and the Altar Guild. Over the years she enjoyed meeting with her homemakers group and playing cards.
Violet is survived by three daughters, Charlotte (Gary) Hoell, Ruth (Chester) Leonard, and Lois (Carl) Demmin, all of Sheboygan; eight grandchildren, Dr. Paul (Kristine) Hoell, Peter (Anne-Marie) Hoell, Dr. James (Christine) Hoell, John (Kelly) Hoell, Jason (Jenny) Leonard, Jamie (Cheryl) Leonard, Christine (Nicholas) Carriere, Alyssa (David) Miller; eighteen great-grandchildren and one step-great-granddaughter; and other relatives and friends.
In addition to her husband, Edwin, she was preceded in death by two brothers and sisters-in-law, Norman (Marion) Kimme and Raymond (Leona) Kimme and her sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Roma (La Verne) Rosenthal.
Funeral services will be held at 5:00 p.m. Friday, May 26, 2017 at Zimmer Westview Funeral Home & Cremation Care Center. Rev. Kenneth Serr, Pastor of Grace Lutheran Church in Haven, will officiate. A time of visitation and support will be held from 3:00 p.m. until the time of service. Burial will take place next week at Wildwood Cemetery.
