Services will be Saturday 3:00 p.m., February 15th 2020, at Heritage Chapel, with Heritage Chapel Funeral Home & Cremations, A Dignity Memorial Provider directing.

Margaret was born on January 5, 1919 in Jasper, Alabama and was preceded in death by her husband Robert F Hamner. He retired from the City of Tuscaloosa as the Assistant Fire Chief. Both Robert and Margaret Hamner were long time members of First Baptist Church in Northport, Alabama. They were active in the choir and Margaret taught a girl’s Sunday School class for many years.

She lived a full life as a wonderful mother and homemaker.

Until her health condition made it impossible, Mrs. Hamner was active in the life of the church at Northport Baptist, working with many ministry efforts.

Most of all she loved her family and instilled in her sons strong values that have served them well.

Mrs Hamner is survived by her sons, Dr. Robert Daniel Hamner (Carol), William Ray Hamner (Janice), Frank Atkins Hamner (India), Paul Felix Hamner; her grandchildren, great grandchildren, great great granddaughter and many nieces and nephews. All of these she loved and touched deeply.

Her life was a living example of her favorite Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 —“And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”

I loved this lady and family so much! Wonderful memories of living in their basement apartment when we first got married. ( early 70’s). When Tara, our daughter, was born I remember walking up the driveway from the apartment to our car/ she was standing outside so excited: she said- oh we are going to have our baby now .! She spoiled all of us rotten when we lived there! Many nights we would make a quick Dairy Queen run, ask them what they wanted and bring it back and eat sundaes, or those slushy fruit drinks together . She was always smiling, and we were sad when we moved but we bought our first house and moved on .! But they sure were good to us all along .! Love, thoughts, and prayers to all the family !

Aunt Margaret was my dad's big sister, and the last of their family to pass. When our families got together, there was a lot of laughter and good food. My siblings learned to have fun and work together because we saw it in Margaret and Dad. She was full of JOY even when she could no longer walk, and through other hard times. She liked all kinds of puzzles, and of course the Crimson Tide!

I have so many heart warming memories of my cheerful Aunt Margaret in her kitchen (and in my DALLAS kitchen) making a family favorite dish from potatoes and garlic...pitchinni? And most recently (2017) singing Happy Birthday to my sister, Pat, for Pats 70th birthday🎂 as well as singing Jesus Loves Me with my husband ,Rey. Then she sang a verse of that song solo in Yiddish! Saying she learned it from missionaries who stayed with her family when she was a child as her Dad was a Baptist minister. In that same visit, Aunt Margaret taught me the correct way to say “Roooolllllll Tide!” I love her dearly and she’ll alway be in my heart til we meet again in heaven.
