Hannah Louise (Johnson) Hemmerly, 95, died Thursday, Feb. 2, 2012 at Good Samaritan Nursing Center in Baltimore, Md.
Hannah was born March 5, 1916 in Bethlehem to the late Elsie C. (Wolf) and Elmer K. Johnson.
She grew up in Hecktown and was a 1933 graduate of Nazareth High School. She graduated from St. Luke’s School of Nursing, Bethlehem, in 1937. Her nursing career included emergency room duty, community work, summer camp and private duty nursing.

From 1976 to 1996 summers were spent at their log cabin in Indian Lake, N.Y., where they often welcomed family and friends. After their 1978 move to Lititz, both volunteered with Meals on Wheels and at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Lancaster and were active in the Lititz Moravian Congregation. They moved to Essex, Md., with their daughter in 2006.
Hannah is survived by her three children: Mary Ellen Eckman, wife of David of Yardley, of Pennsylvania; Marjorie, wife of Eric Carl, of Essex, Md.; and James Hemmerly, of Brooklyn, N.Y.; her grandchildren: Laurie D. Burger and Hannah R. Hemmerly; her three step-grandsons: Rick, Mark and Tom Carl; 12 great-grandchildren; two great-great- grandchildren; her sister-in-law: Mary Lou Hemmerly; and nieces, nephews and cousins.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Feb. 19 at Hope Lutheran Church, 1901 Middleborough Road, Essex, Md.
