Rock Springs Miner, Jan 4, 1959

Funeral services for Helen Young Hamm, 71, widow of Charles F. Hamm, were held Wednesday.

The Rev. John Towery of Green River Congregational church conducted the service. Mrs. Leno Zancanella, accompanied by Mrs. Dominick Giorgis, church organist, sang “Abide With Me” and the “Lord’s Prayer.”

Mrs. Hamm, a well known former Sweetwater county clerk, died suddenly at her home at 224 Liberty Sunday night, December 28. A heart attack caused her death.

A large number of present and past county officials attended the services.

Mrs. Hamm was born Dec. 21, 1887 in Rock Springs, a daughter of George L. Young and Euphemia Chambers Young, pioneer residents of the city. She was educated in the city schools, the University of Wyoming and a Lincoln, Neb., college. She taught in the Rock Springs schools for several years. After the death of Mr. Hamm here in 1930 she was elected to the office of Sweetwater county clerk, an office she held for 12 years.
