Pansy Elaine Hammons, born on November 25, 1934, passed away on Thursday, June 7, 2018 at the age of 83

Pansy was married to Bill Hammons for 63 years. They had 3 children, Gary Lee Hammons, Joe Glen Hammons, and Lana Sue Beathard. Bill Hammons worked for Eastern Air Lines at Hobby Airport and in 1969 moved the family to Montgomery County to work at the new Bush Intercontinental Airport. It was quite an adjustment for Pansy going from city life to country living but once she adjusted she loved it! She always had farm animals, a vegetable garden, and enjoyed looking at her beautiful flowers as she sat on her porch. Her family was the love of her life and it broke her heart when she lost her son, Gary, in 2010. She never quite recovered from it. Mom loved family gatherings. Christmas was always a special time for her and she would go over the top with food, gifts, and of course it wasn’t Christmas without a visit from Santa Claus. Even when we were adults, Santa would still come to visit with a gift for all of us. She loved her family! All she wanted for her 83rd birthday was to see Mickey Gilley in concert. Her wish came true and she stood in line just to get a picture with Mickey Gilley. She talked about it for the rest of her life!

Preceded in death by her Father; Fred Leo Birdwell, Mother; Beatrice Lola Birdwell, Brother; Ronald Gene Birdwell, Husband; Bill Lee Hammons, and Son; Gary Lee Hammons, Pansy is survived by her Sister; Sileta Meeks of El Paso, Sister-in-law; Linda Birdwell of Deer Park, Son; Joe Hammons, Daughter; Lana Beathard (Jimmy), Grandchildren; Ryan Hammons, Jodi Willard (James), William Hammons (Jessica), Steve Molk and Christopher Beathard. Several nieces, nephews and great grandchildren also survive.

A special thanks to Joanie Anderson for the love and care during Mom’s final days.

      During her lifetime, nothing appeared impossible to Pansy. She met the words “it can’t be done” with the enthusiastic challenge of a “wanna bet” attitude. Pansy was able to recognize the possibilities a new idea held, even when those around her could not. For Pansy, the traditional way of doing things fell short of her expectations, especially if there were original and untested methods for handling a challenge. For Pansy Elaine Hammons, the fun of living her life could be found in the challenge.
