Fort Edward

Kathleen Hammond, 80, passed away peacefully following a brief illness on Tuesday, January 28, 2020, at Glens Falls Hospital surrounded by her loving family.

Born on Aug. 6, 1939, in Fort Edward she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Philippa (Sheehan) Smith.

Kathleen graduated from Fort Edward High School in 1957. Following graduation, she went to work for General Electric then for the Union Office in Fort Edward. Kathleen retired from the New York State Assembly. She was a lifelong communicant of the St. Joseph’s Church in Fort Edward.

Mom/Grama Hammond took great pride in her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Mom was a strong, beautiful woman with a wonderful smile that we’ll always remember. She enjoyed going to her grandchildren’s concerts, watching musical videos and sporting events. We will miss her always calling to sing to all of us on our birthday’s. She loved to camp and travel with her children and go to South Carolina to see the ocean and dolphins. Kathleen always had the neatest gadgets. QVC will miss her. She was very proud of her Irish heritage having traveled to Ireland with her sister and nieces. Kathleen was a very generous person always getting us something that we never knew we needed. Most of all she loved us all unconditionally.

In addition to her parents, Kathleen was predeceased by her daughter, Deborah Amell; her sisters, Marnie Smith, Patricia Tierney, Jane McCurray and Ruth Miles; her son-in-law, Darryl Amell.

Left to cherish her memory include her children, Thomas Hammond Jr. and his wife, Michelle, Michael Hammond and his wife, Nanette, Jacqueline Rosati and her husband, Richard, Maryellen Godfrey and her husband, John; her grandchildren, Tanya (Dakota), Christopher (Liz), Elizabeth, John, Katherine, Mitchell, Rachel, Gabrielle, Emily (Robert), Aaron, Johnny, Sammy, Alex, Ashley and Maddy; 12 great grandchildren; her sister, Carol Wells; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

My thoughts and prayers for the loss of this very special lady. I feel fortunate to have been a part of her "Renal Life" and no one admired her more. She had the most beautiful smile, quick wit and was so helpful in my learning of Nephrology and the challenges of Dialysis. She was brave, thoughtful and a pleasure to know. I feel fortunate to have spent a short while with her earlier in the week -- we laughted and shared a few old memories. Her family was her comfort and source of strength. Bless all of you, and to Kathleen, will miss you, dear friend - and your heart was just that special..

Love, Mary Ellen

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I remember her coming to my house several times for her Great Granddaughters birthday parties. She always gave the girls such neat, unique, awesome gifts. You could tell thought and love went into each choice. May your memories soon bring you more smiles than tears. Dawn Dunn
