Elizabeth Madge Hummel
1920 – 2015
“You kids stay home and get the work done. I’m going off with Daddy-O.”
Beth was always entertaining (dinner for 30 in 30 minutes), or ready to head off on a trip with Bob. She has now joined him for the last leg of their journey – a well-deserved rest. Mom and Dad didn’t miss a birthday or an anniversary together, having celebrated their 94th birthdays and their 74th anniversary last fall.
Beth Hummel, wife of the late Robert Hummel, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, on Saturday, September 5, 2015 at Milk River Long Term Care.
She will be missed by 9 living children, 30 grandchildren, 39 great-grandchildren and 2 great great-grandchildren. Beth and Bob’s children and grandchildren are: Wally (Gloria Michaelis) Hummel and children: Danny Hummel, Toni Rae (Doug) Prusky and Guy Hummel; Dianne Bianchi Hummel Nelson (Bill Nelson deceased), and children: Kathy (Darren) Frer, Tyler (Janet Racz) Bianchi, Kyla (Paul) Maaker, Shirley Nelson, Billy (Tanya) Nelson, and Cheryl (Ernesto) Molina; Joanne Rolfe (Gordon deceased) and children: Lori Rolfe and Mike Rolfe; Betty (Dale) Baldwin and children: Bryce Baldwin and Maureen (Ryan) Roberts; Roy (Gail) Hummel and children: Trent (Tamara) Hummel, Jill (Dalton) Rowland, Connie (Bradley) Robertson and Paige (Mike) Tidmarsh; Ruth (Rick) Melvin and children: Patrick Melvin, Scott (Holly) Melvin, Heather Melvin and Jonathan Melvin; Mark Hummel (deceased) and (Karen Sexton) and children: Trevor Sexton and Andrea (Cody) Schalk; Amy (Chuck) Bradley and children: Aaron Bradley, Glen (Janet) Bradley and Nicole (Garrett) Jackson; Doris (Jim) Slag and children: Maureen (Bryan) Schultz, Alison (Eric) Sizer, Jon (Beth) Slag, Lee Slag and Sherri Slag; Dale Hummel.
Beth is survived by her brother, Paul Madge, her sister-in-law, Mabelle Fleming and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents, Martin and Edna Madge, her grandson, Darren Bianchi, her son, Mark, her husband, Robert, her siblings and their spouses; Frank (Verna) Madge, Helen (Henry) Salisbury, Grace (George) Snow and her sister-in-law, Nola Madge. Bob’s parents, Frank and Mabelle Hummel, his siblings and their spouses; Merle (Gen) Hummel, Daisy (Clarence) Dittbenner, Ruth Doty (Scotty Lees) and (Archie Doty), Edith Loft (Albert Kihn) and (Ed Loft), a brother- in-law, Bob Fleming and an infant sister, Alice May Hummel, also predeceased her.
Beth was always ready and willing to share with others – a smile, a song, a poem, a story, a meal, a bed and a listening ear. She was happiest when surrounded by family, friends and strangers who soon became friends. There was always room for one more…. and we have been blessed and privileged to have been amongst the vast number of people whose lives she touched.
The family is so grateful for the personal, loving care received from the doctors, nurses and staff in Milk River.
