Margaret Hemmert Obituary

September 20, 2023, marked the end of the mortal sojourn of Margaret Tremelling Hemmert, 100.  Mom passed peacefully from this mortal sphere at 2:33 P.M. that Wednesday with her three sons by her side. 


Mom was born April 27, 1923, at Conda, Idaho, to William L. Tremelling and Leah Rebecca Skinner.  She was described as looking like a ‘Papoose’ and squealing like a piglet.  She grew up in the Ten-Mile Pass area north of Soda Springs on her Dad’s farm.  She was always proud of the fact that she was able to help Granddad with the farm work, from working the fields, milking the cows, feeding the chickens, to slopping the pigs.


Mom met Earl Hemmert while she was in high school.  After she graduated from Soda Springs High School, she and Earl were married June 2, 1941, in Soda Springs and they were later sealed in the Logan Temple on July 26, 1954.  To this union was born six children, five sons and one daughter.


Mom displayed the strength and courage, that she inherited from her English ancestors, many times during her life.  The first test came for Mom in August 1943 when she lost twin boys at birth.  On February 9, 1957, her husband Earl was taken from her in a mining accident at the Conda mine.  Nearly nine years later, February 6, 1966, she lost her only daughter, Beverly, in an automobile accident.


Mom never wavered.  When Earl passed, she gathered her brood, took the bull by the horns, moved to Soda Springs, and began the task of providing for her four children.  She acquired a position at Ken’s Electric, worked there until 1958 when she applied at K B R V Radio writing copy and doing the daily logs.  When Jim Wallentine, a Bear Lake rancher and Howard Johnson, a radio man from Salt Lake, purchased the station they gave her bookkeeping responsibilities.  From that point Mom’s career exploded upward.  She began travelling once a month to Vernal, Utah, to do bookkeeping  at

K V E L Radio station.  When K B R V was sold, she moved to Vernal to manage that station.  She also obtained her F C C first-class radio telephone operator’s license.  She served in 1977 as the first woman president of the Utah Broadcasting Association.


In 1989, Mom retired and returned to Soda Springs where she obtained her C N A certification and worked at Caribou Memorial Hospital for nine years.


Mom loved bowling (twice a week) and did so for 50 years.  Her other interests included reading, crocheting, and crossword puzzles.


Mom loved her family and showed that love and example through her activity in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  She served in many positions, but I believe her greatest love was singing in the choir.


She supported her children, whenever she was able, whether it athletic events, band concerts, drama presentations, or other activities, and breakfast was always waiting us prior to school or other activities.


Mom was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Earl, twin boys, her daughter,  Beverly, and her siblings.  She is survived by her three sons: Larry (Trudy), Jim (Tonia),  Bob (Lea), 15 grandchildren, 38 great grandchildren, and 15 great, great grandchildren.


Funeral services will be held October 7, 2023, in Paris, Idaho, at the Paris Chapel.  A viewing will also be held beginning at 10:00 A.M. and continuing for one hour.


We love you, Mom.  We are so happy for the glorious reunion you experienced as you passed through the veil and into the arms of our Beloved Savior and your beloved family.  We will miss you until we are reunited once again.
