Celia Ann (Rutherford) Hamman

April 30, 1960 – January 21, 2018

Celia, left this life on Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018. Her work here was done, her contributions complete, her legacy profound.

Celia loved a great book, a beautiful sunset, Maui beaches, her daughter, her auntie, friends and especially God. Her faith was deep and her will incredible.

Her courageous fight against cancer blessed us with two additional years of celebrations, lunch dates, impromptu dance parties, Starbucks coffee with almond croissants and lazy days on the deck soaking in that view.

We miss our dear friend, mother and niece but are comforted knowing she has moved on to beautiful place; reunited with family and friends not seen in a very long time exchanging hugs, laughs, love, dancing, and eating all the carrot cake you want without gaining any weight.

Celia was born to Dr. Wally and Florence Rutherford April 30, 1960 in Ephrata, Wash. She is survived by her precious daughter Lisa Marie Hamman, precious aunt Louise Ferber and many friends who loved her dearly.

A future celebration of life to be planned. Condolences can be sent to Acacia Funeral Home.

“God saw you getting tired, when a cure was not to be. So He wrapped His arms around you, and whispered, ‘come to me.’ You didn’t deserve what you went through, so He gave you rest. God’s garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best. And when I saw you sleeping, so peaceful and free from pain I could not wish you back to suffer that again.”
