Vidamae Catherine Moore Hahn, 84, of Ste. Genevieve, Mo., formerly of Scott City, went to be with the Lord Tuesday, July 27, 2010, after a long battle with heart disease.

She was born Jan. 10, 1926, in Fredericktown, Mo., to William and Mauda Jansen Moore. She and Charles Edwin Hahn were married April 19, 1947.

Hahn graduated from St. Mary's High School (now Notre Dame Regional High School) in Cape Girardeau. She was employed by Cotton Belt Railroad several years.

She was a loyal wife and a loving, caring mother to seven children. She and Charles were of the Catholic faith and involved in their children's schools. As a result of her charitable work at Holy Family Church in Cahokia, Ill., she was named "Mother of the Year." She was a PTA officer, member of Christian Mothers, CCW and Legion of Mary.

She was an avid quilter, seamstress and loved to crochet. In one year she crocheted a full-size afghan for each of her children, their spouses and each of her grandchildren. She loved to write poems, short stories and books of thoughts and ideas that were important to her. She loved to be with family, had a hearty laugh and was quick to share it.

Survivors include her husband; a sister, Eula Schmidt of Bonne Terre, Mo.; three sons, Richard Hahn of Edwardsville, Ill., Dan Maloney Hahn of Groton, N.Y., Ken Hahn of St. Louis; four daughters, Sandy Anderson of Montrose, Colo., Sue Latinette of Murrysville, Pa., Mary Jo Vogt of Dupo, Ill., Lisa Spies of Jackson; 15 grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
