With heavy hearts the family of Hebe Hackman sorrowfully announces her passing on April 24th at the age of 93. She was surrounded with love when she peacefully passed away.
Hebe was born in London England, on April 14th Good Friday in 1922. She studied art in England as a child. Life was a struggle during the war. Luckily her family survived the bombings of their home. She was a war bride and immigrated to Canada with her two young sons to join her husband. She moved to her husband’s reservation near London Ontario and taught school there. After her first husband’s passing she remarried and moved out West. Her parents emigrated from London England to Sandon, BC to live with their only daughter and her family in the early 50’s. Hebe and her husband made their permanent home in Robson, BC.
Hebe’s joys in life were travelling extensively through out the world. She was a member of the Visac Gallery and really loved painting in oils. She made substantial contributions to benefit endangered wildlife and domestic animals. She enjoyed dancing, gardening, and was totally devoted to her family. She was a tremendous advocate for her Grandchildren and loved them deeply. She will always be remembered for saying “I’ll kick up a dust!”
She is survived by her devoted sons Laurin (Janice) and Derran (Judy), 4 Grandchildren, 8 Great Grandchildren and 2 Great great Grandchildren. She was predeceased by her first husband Wilfred George in 1947, her Dad Fred Martin in 1967, her Mother Daisy in1972 and her long time husband Bill Hackman in 1997.
She will be greatly missed by her family!
No service by request. A celebration of her
life will be at her home this summer.
