Caroline, daughter of the late Albert and Barbara Hebig (née Streitenberger), was the second eldest of eight siblings. In her younger years, she enjoyed the competitiveness of hockey with her brothers and sisters on the farm’s frozen slough and playing softball with the ‘Willmont Willies’. Her love of sports continued throughout her life and she could always be found watching hockey, curling, or football on TV. Caroline started and completed her educational journey at Stearns School in Willmont, SK. It was while being employed at Madeline’s café in Bruno that she met a dairy delivery man named Delmar Hamm, who turned out to be the love of her life. They were married August 10, 1954 and were blessed with seven children. Making their home in Bruno, they were both active members of the St. Bruno Roman Catholic Parish and the community. Delmar preceded Caroline in death on December 17, 1986. In her work life, Caroline was employed by Hillcrest Farms for many years. Her excellent work ethic and pleasant personality made her loved by many. At home, she was an avid seamstress, gardener, painter, and cook. She enjoyed family gatherings with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, especially at the Wakaw Lake cabin. Her love of family was great beyond measure. The memory of Caroline’s homecooked meals, with the ‘legendary buns,’ will forever remain in the hearts of all who knew her. She quietly departed this life on April 29, 2021 after a hard-fought battle. Caroline’s beautiful life will forever be cherished by her children: Sharon (Al) Daniels of Saskatoon – Devin (Stacey), Braden (Nicole), Kristen (Jonathan); Donna (Jim) Ettles of Saskatoon – Kyla (Ian), Dana (Steve), Brenna (Danny); Wanda (Ralph) Knihnistki of Saskatoon – Kent (Ang), Shelane (Jarrett); Rod (Roxanne) Hamm of Stony Plain, AB – Brett (Heidi), Jana (Mitch), Shawn; Wesley (Cori) Hamm of Saskatoon – Calen (Michelle), Jordan (Shelby), Sharla (Braxton), Chaz, Ethan; Leanne (Randy) Rein of Regina- Troy (Dayna), Kelsey (Tanner); Peggy (Rene) Julé of Saskatoon- Nathan, Thomas; her 24 great-grandchildren; and her siblings: Clementine Stahl, Delmar Hebig, Dennis (Elaine) Hebig, Jeanette (Frank) Hilbert, Dwayne (Margaret) Hebig, Doris (Ken) Bergen, and Gordon Hebig.
