Our beloved mother, sister, grandmother and friend passed away March 17, 1999 at the age of 77.

Born April 22, 1921 in Mt. Pleasant, Utah to Ralph and Ruby Poulson. She married Melvin C.Hamm August 1, 1941. Together they had and raised one daughter Dianne.

Survived by son-in-law, John Gafa, grandchildren, Dennis, Keith (Carrie), Lisa, Johnny (JoAnn), Susan (Rick) Mietchen, 19 great grand-children, sister, LaRae (Gordon) Orgill, all of Salt Lake, sister and brother-in-law, Nita and A. M. Allen, of Alabama, Many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Preceding her in death are her parents, Ralph and Ruby Poulen, daughter Joyce Dianne Gafa, husband Melvin C. Hamm, sister Yvonne Jensen, and brothers, Ralph and Ted Poulson.

Grandman owned and operated Madge's Cafe from 1953-1963. She worked for her dearest friends, Lynn and June Lott at Lyndy's Cafe until 1974 when she retired. Making her home in Salt Lake City, she adored the great outdoors whether it was hunting, fishing, camping or gardening; she gave it her all and did it with a smile.

I wasn't until July 1998 that she lost her zest for life when she lost her only child. She is now reunited with her daughter and husband. We are blessed with each and every moment we shared with her. She has taught us to live life to the fullest, and the things she has instilled in us to pass on to our children. She will be deeply missed by all. We love you Grandma, bye for now.

Funeral services Friday, March 19, 11 a.m., Goff Mortuary, where friends may call one hour prior to services. Interment Mt. Pleasant City Cemetery.
