Judy Lynn Hammond


Judy was born Eugina Cassell in San Francisco, Calif., July 27, 1954. She is survived by her brother Rick and Carole Hammond, of Valley Center, Calif.; sister Kathleen and Mark Heid, of San Marcos, Calif.; niece Whitney Heid, of San Marcos, Calif.; nephews Wesley and Leslie Heid, of Santa Ana, Calif.; and Tom Hammond, of San Diego, Calif.; and numerous cousins.

Preceding her in death were her parents, Fred (Dick) Richard Hammond and Alberta Jane Cassell; grandparents Walter Forrest Cassell, Rose Mae Creech, Fred Price (Allen Hagel) Hammond and Bertha Katherine Margaret Stolte Hammond Swall.

Judy discovered her love of traveling while her father was an operating engineer. They moved wherever the job was located, living in northern and southern California, northern and southern Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, Montana and Colorado.

She loved to garden at an early age, along with raising ducks and chickens. Camping, fishing and boating on Lake Mead, Nev., and Lake Pleasant, Ariz. She enjoyed visiting Yosemite, Glacier and Yellowstone national parks, just taking off on a dirt road just to see where it led and taking walks along the beach.

While living in Carson City, Nev., Judy enjoyed being on stage in Carson Capers 88’, a member of the Sherwood Forest Players and in “A Christmas Carol.” Since moving to Montana, Judy’s love of container gardening and river rafting down the Flathead river started back up. She had been researching her family history (off and on for 50-plus years). Since the age of 9, Judy has had a close connection with God, that has helped her throughout the years.

My love to all.
