Linda Ruth Hamit - November 21, 2013
Linda Ruth (Hall) Hamit, 66, of Wallace, Neb., went home to be with the Lord on Nov. 15, 2013, at her home in Wallace. She was born on Dec. 14, 1946 in McCook, Neb. to Merle “Bud” and Ruth A. Hall.
Linda graduated from the University of Nebraska School of Agriculture, and later earned her Bachelor’s in accounting. While attending UNSA, Linda met the love of her life, Carl Hamit. They were married on July 12, 1964 at the First United Methodist Church in Curtis. Neb. This union was blessed with four children: Robert, Angel, Shannon, and Jeremy.
The couple lived at Kennedy and Milford, Neb. until Carl joined the Marine Corp in 1967. They were stationed in Memphis, Tenn. and El Toro, Calif. until Carl’s discharge in 1971. The family lived in Curtis until 1978 when they moved to Wallace where they owned and operated Wallace Flying Service.
Linda was actively involved in her children and grandchildren’s lives. Time spent with family was always important to her; she enjoyed having everyone over for holiday meals. She loved to preserve the memories of her family through photography. She enjoyed traveling with Carl, both flying and driving.
There was always a dog around the house and horses in the pasture. Reading was a favorite past-time, and it wasn’t uncommon for there to be several books in each room of the house.
Left to cherish her memory is her husband of almost 50 years, Carl Hamit of Wallace; daughters, Angel and husband Bruce Brennemann of Curtis, and Shannon and husband Chris Reich of El Paso, Texas; grandchildren, Jacob, Andrew, Aretta, Grace and Ella Brennemann, Danielle and Darian Reich, Wyatt and Garrett O’Brien; brothers, Greg and wife Cindy Hall of Fremont, Neb. and Steve Hall of Curtis, and a host of extended family and friends.
Linda was preceded in death by her parents and sons, Robert and Jeremy Hamit.
Services were held at the Community Hall in Wallace on Nov. 20 with Pastor Brian Nicklas officiating.
Interment followed at Fort McPherson National Cemetery at Maxwell, Neb.
Memorials may be given to the American Cancer Society Heartland Division 9850 Nicholas, Suite 200 Omaha, NE 68114.
