On April 12, 2014, Doris Hamaker celebrated her 92nd birthday. Eleven days later, she passed away at Ponderosa Villa in Crawford, Nebraska. An overflow crowd attended her funeral service in Crawford on Monday, April 28, 2014. Not a Galey by birth or marriage -- but her daughter Zoleta married Garold (Gary) Galey, and her husband, Tom, was a cousin to Ila Belle (Hamaker) Sibert, whose daughter married another Galey -- Gary's brother Bob.
Doris was well known for her great sense of humor, her candor, an infectious smile, and the best cinnamon rolls this side of heaven, where she now surely shares her treats with all the angels!
