Kathryn Ann Hammons, 79, of Dallas, Texas, passed away peacefully at the home of her son, Greg, on November 12, 2013. Kathryn was born on April 2, 1934 to K.K.

She was a great cook and an avid baker, and had a pretty green thumb when it came to gardening and working in the yard. Kathryn was also a wonderful seamstress, and loved to play tennis. She enjoyed playing Bridge with the ladies in Huntsville, Alabama - where she lived most of her life. Kathryn's family truly was her world, and she will be greatly missed by all.

I was very sorry to learn of your loss. I have very fond memories of her and her baked treats she would serve after touch football games in your back yard; she made the best cakes ever! She had a very infectious laugh which would brighten anyone's day. I know you will miss her. You all will remain in my prayers.
