Jacquelyn Elsie Hamm
October 6, 1947 – March 17, 2020
Jacquelyn (Jackie) Elsie Hamm (née Williams), age 72 of Granite Falls, passed away on Tuesday, March 17, 2020. She was born to Melbourne and Elsie Williams on October 6, 1947 in London, England. She emigrated to the United States as a child when her parents moved seeking a better life and business opportunities. Jacquelyn grew up near Anaheim, California where she attended public school and lived with her parents and siblings on a horse ranch. Jacquelyn moved to Granite Falls, Washington with her family where she met her future husband, James (Jim) Hamm. Jim and Jackie were married on August 18, 1973, in Monroe, Washington in the Wayside Chapel alongside Highway 2. Jackie and Jim moved to property up the Mountain Loop Highway outside of Granite Falls. It was here that they raised their six children. Jackie loved the outdoors and was a bit of a tomboy. Every year she looked forward to her family fishing trip to Twin Lakes near Inchelium, Washington. Jackie was very artistic and had a talent for painting and firing ceramics. These pieces were so well done that she eventually began selling them at a local shop in Granite Falls. Some of her ceramics have become treasured family heirlooms. She also loved animals of all kinds, at various times having cats, dogs, birds, turtles, guinea pigs, hamsters, and many other species as pets. Jacquelyn is survived by her husband, Jim, daughters, Lisa (Paul), Deborah (Youness), and Christine Hamm, sons James and Wade (Edie) Hamm, grandchildren Tyler, Andrew, Aidan, Yusef, Adam, Ariana, and Logan, and siblings Debbie (John) Stanczak, Annie (Keith) Dalke, Mel (Debbie) Williams, and Clint Williams. Jackie was preceded in death by her eldest daughter, Jayme. A Celebration of Life memorial service will be planned and held at a later date.

I used to drive Jackie’s kids to @ from school when they were little. Any time I’ve ever had to talk to Jackie about her kids she would always talk very proud. She had good reason her kids are the greatest.
The loss of Jamye was very hard on all of the family, but now she finally gets to see her daughter she will be with her. Filling Jamye in on how all of your life has progressed in the time of her absence. Rest in peace Jackie.
