Delores Hammer Obituary

Delores Hammer, age 95 of Auburn, passed away on Friday, February 16, 2024 surrounded by her loving family at Parkview DeKalb Hospital in Auburn.

She was born on February 24, 1928 in Fort Wayne to Everett K. and Bertha E. (Aaron) Sherwood. 

Delores married Harry E. Hammer on February 14, 1948 in Waynedale.  He preceded her in death on November 20, 2017.

She loved hunting for and collecting antiques so it was a natural fit for her to be an antique dealer for over 40 years, owning several of her own antique stores along the way.  She was also very artistic, attending art school after high school.  She enjoyed and was very good at drawing freehand and painting pictures.  Delores loved dogs, owning many over the years with Tippy and Molly being the most recent.  She loved God, and she had a very strong faith that she passed down to her children.  She was a very loving and helpful person who always seemed to put others first.  She will be greatly missed! 

Survivors include:

Daughter; Karen Kunnemann of Broomfield, Colorado.

Daughter and son-in-law; Sharon and Gary Sloffer of Churubusco.

Daughter and son-in-law; Diane and Phil Marshall of Auburn.

Seven grandchildren and their spouses; Julie and Arthur Nunez, Tammy and Jason Tiner, Melissa and Brandon Lampert, Chad Sloffer, Brett and Britney Sloffer, Jaren “Dink” and Shannon Sloffer and Kristen and Phil Plasterer.

14 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her father; Everett Sherwood, her mother; Bertha Flood, her husband; Harry Hammer, two brothers; John Sherwood and Jim Sherwood, one sister; Devonna Hobbs and son-in-law; Steve Kunnemann.
