      Stella Mae Fast LAMAR, Mo. - Stella Mae Fast, 80, of Lamar, Mo., died on Thursday, Nov. 11, 2004. She had been a resident of Truman Healthcare Center since June 2004. She was born Aug. 14, 1924, in Crawford County, Ind., to Oscar and Rosa (Rainey) Hammond. She lived most of her earlier years at Union Chapel near Grantsburg, Ind., and graduated from high school in Leavenworth, Ind., in 1943. She then worked in New Albany, Ind., and Fort Knox, Ky. On Aug. 7, 1946, she married Paul Eugene (Gene) Fast at the Methodist Church parsonage in New Albany. They had lived and farmed in Barton County since they were married. They moved to Lamar in 1994, but continued their farming operation. He survives of the home. She was an active member of the First Christian Church in Lamar, where she was in charge of the funeral dinners for several years. She started the Puppet Ministry, hand making all of the puppets and writing all of the skits. She had been a project 4-H Club leader and was a member of the Liberal, Mo., V.F.W. Auxiliary Lodge No. 2664. She had been a volunteer for the Barton County Memorial Hospital Gift Shop and worked at the Good Samaritan Shop. She was a Red Cross volunteer, assisting with emergency leaves for military personnel and working as the Barton County Bloodmobile Chairman until this past April.

      I was born into the home of Oscar and Rosa Hammond. We lived east of the Union Chapel Church to the first road to the left and over the hill. I had one sister, Romane and one brother, Eugene. We attended the Chapel Church and the Roberson School while growing up. We had some good services at the Chapel. Sometimes my mother got so happy that she shouted for joy. My Dad wasn't a Christian till he was much older.

      I got my early schooling at the Roberson Grade School. We studied by lamp light like all the others. We thought life was pretty hard, but now that I look back, it was just a simple life style. We always had food, shelter and something to wear; what more could you ask for? I guess you could ask for a lot of things, but we had all the necessities for life.

      I attended the Leavenworth High School and graduated from there in nineteen and forty-three. I survived the teen-age years and finally got old enough to get married. I met and married Paul Eugene Fast from Liberal, Missouri on April seventh, nineteen and forty-six. (I guess you could say that he was a Fast man and he caught me). We lived on our farm until November, nineteen and ninety-four, then moved to the small town of Lamar, Missouri, which was Harry Truman's birthplace. We still own our five hundred acre farm, but Gene doesn't do much farming, he leaves most of the work to others. During the winter months he spends quite a bit of time in his shop making various articles of wood.

      We have two children, Sheila Ann McReynolds and Taylor Eugene Fast. We have two grand-daughters, two great grand-daughters and one great grandson. Our son, Taylor, never married, because he couldn't find a girl here like they have in Crawford County, Indiana! He lives in Wichita, Kansas where he works at the Cessna airplane plant as an electrical engineer. I keep busy working in our church, doing volunteer work for the American Red Cross and other community activities.

      How time flies! I went back to Crawford County in nineteen and ninth-three to help celebrate our Fiftieth Anniversary after graduating from the Leavenworth High School. We go back to Indiana once in awhile to visit my sister, Romane who lives in New Albany and my brother, Eugene, in Corydon. I'm looking forward to hearing from "old" friends and neighbors. Stella Mae Hammond Fast.
