Hilda Selma Hamp
It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Hilda Selma Hamp (nee Penner) on Sunday January 13th, 2019 at St. Joseph’s Home in Saskatoon at the age of 83 with the family at her side.
Hilda leaves to mourn her passing, loving husband of 58 years Erwin; son Darren, children Kasandra and Mitchel; son Jason (Joanne), children Spencer and Alana; daughter in-law Elly, children Tyler and Tori; brother Henry (Pat) Penner and sister Ricky (Les) Bakos. She is predeceased by her parents Dave and Katie Penner and son Lyndon.
Hilda was born in Maymont Saskatchewan to Dave and Katie Penner on December 17th 1935. She attended public school at Keystone Country School and Maymont High School, completing grade 12 at City Park in Saskatoon. In 1953 she enrolled in Saskatoon Teachers College and after her graduation her first placement was at Pleasant Point Country School near Dundurn followed by Langham Public School until 1959.
In 1956 she met Erwin and in 1960 they were married and moved to a farm northeast of Radisson. Hilda continued to teach in Fielding until 1963. Then family life began and teaching became a lower priority. They farmed at Radisson from then until present day. In addition to farming life, she was able to find time to substitute teach throughout her life until the early 2000’s. Her tireless volunteer work with the local community earned her the “Radisson and District Community Person of the Year” award in 1999. Her compassionate, loving, self-less, out-going personality will be dearly missed.
We would like to thank all the staff at the St. Joseph’s Home for their outstanding care of Hilda over the past 3 years.
Join us to celebrate her life on Saturday January 19, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at the Radisson Lutheran Church, 402 Albert Street, Radisson, Saskatchewan, with Pastor Boyd Molder officiating. Interment to follow at the Radisson Cemetery.
