Elizabeth Ann ‘Beth’ (Hammar) Demers | News, Sports, Jobs



Beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend

Elizabeth Anne “Beth” (Hammar) Demers, 46, died at her home in Hudson NH on Saturday, October 1, following a seizure. Her husband Timothy Demers was by her side.

Sadly, Beth’s husband, Timothy Demers of Hudson NH, died later on Friday, October 7, following a tragic accidental fall a few days later. (Please see the Pelham Funeral Home website for a link to his obituary).

Born October 22, 1976 in Nashua NH to parents; Cynthia Peters Milosh and Michael F. Hammar, she grew up in Hudson and Pelham NH, and graduated from Alvirne High School in 1994.

Beth then worked for Gerber Dental Group of Hooksett for almost 25 years. She impacted everyone who met her, with a warm smile, a sassy welcome and a caring nature.

His pride and joy were his sons, Gavin and Alex. There to support their interests and encourage them. Easy to talk, to confide and to have fun. Their home was filled with music, laughter, love (and a symphony of barking dogs). She enjoyed family vacations, exercise, a good manicure and concerts.

Beth was always present in the lives of her parents, siblings, nieces, nephews and friends. The rock of the family! Never too busy to be there for the important things. She would also be the 1st person to kick you in the right direction when needed, with a firm tone and a caring heart. She took time for those she loved, and it was time well spent.

Another passion was helping animals, especially dogs. Beth has rescued many dogs over the years as a volunteer for Pelham Animal Rescue. She worked as a foster mother (with “foster failures” along the way) and donated her time to the shelter. She took trips south, carrying dogs, hoping to find their forever home. Helping people in need, people like 4-legged friends, came naturally to him.

Beth left this world much better than she found it. Its impact will continue to be felt by others, forever. She will be remembered for her beauty, inside and out. For her bold lipstick that matched her personality and her eternal optimism in the face of all odds.

Besides her sons, she is survived by her father Michael Hammar and his wife Cilene of Pelham NH. His mother, Cynthia Milosh and her husband Richard of Litchfield NH. Brothers and sisters; Kelly P Hammar from Wilton, Julie Hammar from Hudson, Kristen Milosh from Litchfield, Steven Hammar from Nashua and Mary Hammar from Pelham. Sister-in-law Patricia Demers of Hudson NH and many beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.

Beth was predeceased by her nephew Lyric Michaud whom she loved like another son, and her beloved dogs whom she will be able to meet on the Rainbow Bridge.

Family and friends are invited to join us at the American Legion @ 43 Bamboosic Lake Rd, Merrimack NH on Sunday, November 13, 2022 for a Celebration of Life/Memorial Service between 2-6 p.m. We look forward to honoring Elizabeth’s life and that of her husband Timothy.

Beth then worked for Gerber Dental Group of Hooksett for nearly 25 years. She was very proud of her career and the family atmosphere that was created with staff and patients. She impacted everyone who met her, with a warm smile, a sassy welcome and a genuinely caring nature. Her humble generosity is remembered by all who knew her.

Beth’s greatest pride and joy have always been her sons; Gavin 24 and Alex 21. She was their cheerleader, their support and their guide. It’s always easy to talk and confide, but above all to have fun. The house was filled with music, laughter and lots of love. She enjoyed taking family vacations, exercising, spending quality time with friends and family, and attending the occasional rock concert when she had the chance.

Beth was also omnipresent in the lives of her parents, siblings, nieces, nephews and friends. The rock of his family! The person people ran to, in good times and bad.

No need to water down her words, she would set you straight with a firm tone and a kind heart. She always made time for those she loved, and it was time well spent.
