Clarice "Imogene" Hammond, 74, Elizabethtown

Clarice "Imogene" Hammond, 74, Elizabethtown, died at 7:48 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14, 2012, at Columbus Regional Hospital.

She was born in Jackson County, Jan. 13, 1938, daughter of the late Mance and Prudy Ferguson Allman. She married Ronald "Gene" Hammond on Jan. 31, 1953, and he survives.

Imogene loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Holidays, especially Christmastime, were very meaningful to her, because it was a time for everyone to spend time together. She enjoyed listening to country music, reading, spending time with friends, and she loved to go shopping. She also enjoyed going hiking before her health prevented her from it.

Imogene attended Elizabethtown United Methodist Church previously, and was employed at Columbus East High School in the cafeteria for over 20 years.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by a son, Ronald Lee Hammond of Seymour; daughters, Sherry (Mike) Noblitt of Columbus, and Stephanie L. (Michael) Berry of Greenwood; grandchildren, Kristyn (Matt) Dingledy, Matt Noblitt, Justin (Cinnamon) and Miranda Hammond, Keegan and Brock Berry; great-grandchildren, Skylar, Will, Adalynn and Ian Dingledy and Bryson Engleking; brothers, Jack (Jay) Allman of Columbus, Leon (Terry) Allman of North Vernon, Larry (Lulu) and Randy (Linda) Allman, both of Columbus, and Richard Allman of Seattle, Wash.; stepsister, Agnes Eileen Williams of Seymour; a sister-in-law, Gina Allman of Brown County; and sisters, Wanetta Cockerham of Brownstown, Carol (John) Pennington of Cincinnati, Ohio, Lois (Buddy) Irvin and Phyllis (Albert) Zapfe, both of Columbus; and several nieces and nephews.

Imogene was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Russ and Allen Allman; a sister, Lavina Allman; and a stepbrother, Jess "Bud" Allman.

Funeral services were conducted Wednesday Dec. 19 at Jewell-Rittman Family Funeral Home with the Revs. Robert Lay and Shane Rocker officiating. Calling was Tuesday eve Dec. 18 and before the service Wednesday at the funeral home. Burial was at Springer Cemetery.

Memorial contributions can be made to the American Diabetes Association.
