Lammy was born in De Wijk, Drente, the Netherlands on July 15, 1927 to Lucas and Willemina Hummel and was raised in Hollandscheveld. She, along with her mother, father and four brothers immigrated to Canada in the spring of 1949 and settled in Nobleford. In 1954, she married the love of her life, John Hazelaar, and together they made their home in Medicine Hat where they had three children. In 1965, they moved to Redcliff to start their own greenhouse business. After John’s death, Lammy and the children moved back to Medicine Hat where she worked at the All Seasons Restaurant until 1985. She enjoyed gardening and did lots of crocheting. Lammy enjoyed watching her grandchildren play hockey and soccer in Medicine Hat as well as visiting her grandchildren in Edmonton. She loved travelling and went to many different countries, enjoying each trip she took. Lammy was a quiet woman with a strong faith in God making it easier to go through life with Him as her guide. She had difficult times but also a very rich life which she appreciated to the end. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
