Obituary for Atrelle Imogene Moore Hammond

Atrelle Imogene Moore Hammond, 92, peacefully passed away Thursday, June 21, 2018,
surrounded by her loving family in Weatherford.

Celebration of life: 1 p.m. Saturday, July 21 in the sanctuary of Bethesda United
Methodist Church, 657 FM Rd 113 N, Weatherford. Inurnment: Southland Memorial
Park, 1100 SW 3rd St, Grand Prairie.

Imogene, as she was called by those who knew her best,was born April 1, 1926, in
Denison, to the late Henry R. and Leah Vest Moore. She had a passion for life and
learning never fearing to reinvent herself. Friends and family benefited from her words
of wisdom, including the words “Spend it wisely” whenever she gave a gift of money. She
graduated from Wayland Baptist College and was a 2nd grade teacher in Plainview. She
sold real estate in Wichita Falls and after moving to Parker County, Imogene joined
Bethesda United Methodist Church where she was a cherished organist and pianist.
Imogene remained at Bethesda UMC the remainder of her life.

Imogene had many loves, but first and foremost was her Lord Jesus Christ and her
family. Music was also Imogene’s passion. She was a church musician most of her adult
life and enthusiastically taught herself to play any instrument that caught her eye. The
most recent being the harmonica. She would entertain family, friends and pets by
playing any number of traditional or folk instruments.She desired joyful gatherings and
would provide a spectacle with her antics as Iggie the clown. Imogene was a very
thoughtful, creative soul who loved sewing, crochet, writing poetry, and collecting old
cookbooks.

Imogene was preceded in death by her husband of 20 years Malcolm Perry Hammond;
her parents; two sisters, Lovina Williams and Ethell Susan; and dear friend and
companion, Woodrow Lamkin.

Survivors include her daughters, Anita Shepherd and husband, Bruce, of Breckenridge,
and Sharon Thomas and husband, Phil, of Joshua; grandchildren, Trent Shepherd and
wife, Marietta, Devron Shepherd, Clint Thomas and Crystal, Erica Sawaneh and Ensa,
and Heather Thomas and Shawn; great-grandchildren, Grace, Jack, Will, Steven, Taylor,
Rylan, Isabella, Aubrianna, and Mariama; bonus great-grandchildren, Trenton, Trista,
and Tatym; and a host of loving friends and extended family.
