Preceding her in death, was her sister, Eunice Frazier Hamer and her husband, J. P. Hamer; nephew, Jim C. Hamer and Lowell D. Stanley.

Hamer II and his wife, Lesley and Stephen A. Hamer and his wife, Donna. After graduating from Marshall University, Leola taught business classes at Buffalo High School. She left teaching to manage the office for the J. P. Hamer Lumber Co. early in its inception (1930’s). After many years, the company sold and she worked for her nephew at the Jim C. Hamer Co. Her family and friends will always remember her standard of excellence, dedication and love for others. Leola was an active and faithful member of the First Baptist Church of Kenova and enjoyed many years in the “Buddy” Sunday school class. In retirement, she moved to the Woodlands and made many wonderful friendships. She became a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Huntington. Although she loved the Woodlands, she decided to celebrate her 100 year birthday in Heaven. What a party that will be! The family will receive friends from 1:30 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. Sunday, September 11, 2011 in the Welcome Center of the First Baptist Church in Kenova. A Celebration of Life service will follow beginning at 2:00 p.m. at the church. Burial will be in Woodmere Cemetery following the Celebration of Life service. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to The Hamer Scholarship Fund c/o the First Baptist Church of Kenova. Rollins Funeral Home in Kenova is assisting the family.
