Beloved wife of the late Herbert Lee Hammerman, survived by her sons James and Maggie (Leary) Hammerman (Arlington, MA), Arnold and Janet (Green) Hammerman (Mukilteo, WA), Andrew Hammerman and Michelle Kirby (Chugchilan Ecuador / Rochester, MA), grandchildren Hannah and Aviva Hamavid, Hadyn and Avery Hammerman, her brother Robert, and Sandi Schulman, brother-in-law Alan (Mickey), and Myrna Hammerman, and many beloved cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Evie was born in Rochester NY, to Abraham and Lillian (Snider) Schulman. She earned her Bachelor's degree from Cornell University, and Master's in Social Work from the University of Illinois. She and Herb met as childhood sweethearts, later marrying and raising their family in Highland Park, IL. She had many close friends through the Jewish community, sailing and the arts.

She will be remembered for her drive and determination, strong values, spunky adventurous personality, and generosity. Graveside service Wednesday July 10, 10 AM at Shalom Memorial Park, 1700 W.

I remember Evie's caring and concern for a dear friend of mine who was going through cancer treatment last year. They were both doing treatment at the local hospital in Keene.Evie reached out to her and gave my friend, Chris, loving support when she most needed it. Evie was funny, honest and hopeful.
She was also a good bridge player.

My heartfelt condolences to her beloved family members.
Evie of the spiral curl and the daisy car antenna was grand company, and we enjoyed together opera productions, art shows, and playing bridge. For awhile we even played duplicate bridge, but soon realized that we didnt have the temperament for elevating the game to the serious level demanded. (We laughed too much). We settled for a more social card playing environment. During those games, we would chat, and it was clear that the trip to Alaska last year with her children and grandchildren was the "best ever" of her many travels. I'm so grateful to have known Evie.

I knew Evie through bridge and CALL classes in Keene. She was a regular participant in social bridge games at the college. What a wonderful woman!
