Judy Velle Hammonds

June 8, 1952 — October 4, 2021

Judy Hammonds, 69, a resident of Athens, TN departed this life on October 4, 2021. She was born on June 8, 1952 in Norfolk, Virginia to the late Marvin and Geneva Hardy. Judy has lived in Tennessee for the last 26 years. She lived in South Florida for most her life and raised two children with her husband, Donald Hammonds. She was a wife, a grandmother, a sister, an aunt, and a mom to so many. Judy loved to talk on the phone and gossip for hours. We called it her “hot line.” She was very crafty and made beautiful flower arrangements.
Judy was preceded in death by her parents, Marvin and Geneva Hardy; and her sister, Jackie Hardy.
Those left to cherish her memory are her husband, Don Hammonds; her children, Donald Lee Hammonds (Betty) and Teri Lynn Reed (Ed); her grandchildren, Donald (Laura), Anthony, and Edward; her siblings, Marsha Works (Jim), Neil Hampton, Sue Palmer, Lu Shaver, Gary Hammonds (Deb); a special niece, Jamie Whitehouse; many more nieces and nephews; and a host of special friends.
A celebration of life ceremony will be held on Saturday, November 6, 2021 at Companion Funeral & Cremation Service – Athens Chapel at 2:00 p.m. with visitation prior from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
