Janelle (Hamm) Strickland

August 24, 1930 ~ August 19, 2023 (age 92) 92 Years Old


Ms. Janelle Hamm Strickland, age 92, of Graham, passed away Saturday, August 19, 2023 at her residence with her family by her side.

Ms. Strickland was born August 24, 1930 in Appling County.

She is preceded in death by her parents, William Briley Hamm and Addie Cowart Hamm, husband, R.A. Strickland, her granddaughter, Candace Brandi Clotfelter, sisters, Gertrude Miles, Kathleen Bright, Essie Mae Floyd, Angie Lee Graham and Merleen Shumans; brothers, Warnell (Sam) Hamm, James Lester Hamm, Charles Felton Hamm, and John Edward Hamm.

She was a quiet, gentle, sweet, and kind lady. She had a big Heart and enjoyed doing the little things for her children and her smile would radiate the room. She enjoyed gardening, working in her flowers (she had a green thumb) and could grow anything. She loved her family dearly, enjoyed spending time with and cooking for them. Her family remarks: “She was a beautiful precious Mama; we could call her and she could talk us through anything and just the sound of her voice would always comfort us.”  She will truly be missed.

Survivors include her daughter and son-in-law, Cheryl and James Stephens of Hazlehurst; son, Kenny Strickland of Statesboro; three grandchildren, Wendy Brown, Kim Breedlove (Tony) and Dylan Mims; ten grandchildren, Kayla, Luke, Hunter, Cara, Caden, Evan, Ethan, Eli, Tyler and Cole; several nieces, and nephews also survive.

The family can be reached at the residence of her daughter, Cheryl Stephens, 85 W. Palm Road, Hazlehurst.
