Isabelle Lockman

Isabelle Lockman, 95, passed away peacefully on Monday, February 11, 2019.  

Isabelle was born on May 17, 1923 in Wood Lake, NE to Joseph and Lillian Bunn.  She was one of twin daughters, first born in a family of eight children.  Their father worked most of his life on the railroad so there were many moves growing up.

In 1939 she married Dale Hamar, raised their five (5) children and was treasured by her in-laws.  They moved frequently during the marriage finally settling in Chadron, NE in 1951. The marriage dissolved in 1965, but she remained and worked in Chadron until 1972 when she married Lloyd Lockman of rural Alliance, NE.  She worked with him on his ranch for 38 years.  She was a very hard worker with an old-fashioned work ethic and Yankee ingenuity.

She was very active in Does in Alliance for a number of years.  She loved to crochet and do all sorts of fancy work which she would give to family and friends.  She donated her work to local organizations as prizes for benefits or fundraisers.  When she was young she played guitar and love to read.  Enjoyed her houseplants, drawing, dancing and cooking.  Later years found her in the yard or, any place she could reach, with a lawn mower.

She is survived by 4 of her children:  Loretta Millburn, Hill City, SD; Yvonne (Doug) Green of Jackson, MO; Ron Hamar of Crawford, NE; Stan (Phyllis) Hamar of Greeley, CO; numerous grand, great and great-great grandchildren; sister Ruth (Marvin) Falk of Delta, CO; twin sister Ellen Moore of Mapleton, MN; brother Dwight (Gwen) Bunn of Lizella, GA.

She was preceded in death by her parents, 2 husbands, 1 son-in-law, 1 son, 1 granddaughter, 1 set of twin grandchildren, 1 brother and 3 sisters.

Graveside services will take place at 1:30 pm on Friday, February 15 at Alliance Cemetery in Alliance, NE.

No flowers or donations requested.
