Obituary of Mrs. Annette “Babe” Hammond
Annette “Babe” Hammond, 83, of Dagsboro, DE passed away in the loving care of her family and the staff of Vitas Hospice on October 19, 2020.
She was born on May 29, 1937 to the late Vollie B. and Helen Hitchens in Dagsboro. She was married to William E. Hammond, Jr., who preceded her, and together they raised two children. She worked for, and retired from the State of Delaware as a Secretary in the Unemployment Office. Babe attended The River (Wesleyan Church) in Roxana, DE. She loved reading, and keeping up with Judge Judy, as well as her other favorite TV programs. Babe had a routine and was not happy when her programs were interrupted by press conferences. She was opinionated and a “no nonsense” type of person, who loved her family and would do anything for her grandkids. Babe loved her chocolate and pretzels, and would never turn down dessert.
She is survived by her two children: Deborah L. Hickman and Duane S. Marvel (Glen) both of Dagsboro; and three grandchildren: Ethan L. Hickman (Dawn); Brandon G. Marvel (Amanda); and Nicole H. Sturla (Spencer). A very special thanks goes out to Lavette Mumford and the staff of Vitas Hospice for the excellent loving care that was given.
A funeral service and Celebration of Her Life will be held at The River Church, in Roxana, DE on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at 12:00 Noon with Pastor Mike Ennis officiating. Friends may call one hour prior, from 11:00 till noon for a viewing and visitation with the family. Masks and social distancing will be required to follow covid 19 restrictions.
Interment will be private at the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery.
