Former spouse of Jim Hammond. She is also survived and fondly remembered by many cousins, relatives, friends and especially her beloved dogs Bo, Willie, Buster and Baby Cakes.

Gay truly enjoyed life through her simple pleasures of arts & crafts, Lifetime movies, cooking delicious New Mexican and New Orleans cuisine, loved getting her hair done while shopping, enjoyed long conversations and good company, long vacations and decorating. Her fondness for filet steak with mud pie and a glass of wine was surpassed only by her everlasting love and devotion for her children and grandchildren. Gay will always be remembered for her loyalty and dedication to her family, her caring and loving spirit and her laughter. She was well loved and will be deeply missed by us all.

Precious is Gay in the sight of God. I met Gay in Albuquerque over twenty years ago. She was beautiful - physically and spiritually - I was always so taken with her absolute love for her children. She was full of life, and so caring of and for her family and friends. May God be with them all as they mourn this loss.
