Miriam Connor Hamer, age 102, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on January 14, 2015. She was born to Carl and Amelia Schubert in Pittsburgh, PA on August 20, 1912.

Miriam graduated from high school at age sixteen and went to work at Westinghouse where she met and married Lloyd Connor. While residing in Mansfield, OH, they had two daughters, Martha and Muriel. Their
move to Lima in 1942 centered around church and community. Lloyd passed away in 1964. Miriam later married a longtime friend, Paul Hamer who passed in 1996.

Miriam loved life – her faith, family and many bridge playing friends were very important to her. She served her church Trinity UMC as a greeter and in the Women’s Society. She was bookkeeper for the
Luggage Shop for many years before its closing; also was a presiding judge for the Allen County election board. Unfortunately Miriam’s later years were overtaken by dementia. Yet until the end, she remained a lovely, sweet human being.

She is survived by her two daughters and spouses: Martha Carson and Jim, and Muriel Myers and Steve, and two nieces: Connie Greenwald and Phyllis Kirbabus. She is also survived by six grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Her only sibling, Ruth, predeceased her as well as a great-grandson, Tom Carson, and her
stepson, Bob Hamer and his two children.

A memorial service will be held on Monday, August 3rd at 11:00 a.m. in the chapel at Trinity United Methodist Church, with a luncheon to follow.
