Anderson

Susan K Hammack (72) of Moores Hill, Indiana, beloved wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully on January 26, 2024. She was surrounded by her loving family and her loyal dog, Lucy. Susan lived a life filled with love, joy, and dedication. 

 

She was raised in Dublin, Indiana and spent her teenage years in Erie, Pennsylvania, where she graduated from McDowell High School. 

 

Susan loved her family dearly. She was a devoted wife to her husband, Wilbur Hammack, for 47 years, sharing a partnership built on love and mutual support. Together, they built a home filled with laughter and family. 

 

She was a devoted mother to her four children: Kimberley McComb, Carolee Couch, Patty (Dave) Eaker, and Jamie (Theresa) Hammack, whose lives were enriched by her presence and guidance in trying times. Her grandchildren, Cy (Amanda) Bentley, Ceairra (Sean) Kampe, Cassondra (Josh) Winn, Theodore Couch, Catherine Hammack, Grace Hammack, Henry McComb, and William McComb brought immeasurable joy into her life. And her great-grandchildren, Levi Bentley, Brooks Bentley, Benjamin Winn, Elijah Winn, and Catherine’s soon to be born baby boy were the light of her later years. She always wanted to hear what they were up to– even when she was no longer able to see them.

 

She was the fifth of six children born to Bernice and John Hazelwood: Judith Barnes, John (Julie) Hazelwood Jr, Sandra (Richard) Hewett, Michael (Ann) Hazelwood, and Cynthia Hazelwood. And though she was not in close contact with several of her siblings in her later years, she always spoke about them fondly. She has nine nieces and nephews and numerous great nieces and nephews. 

 

Susan was a surrogate mother to family, friends, and anyone who was in need of love and mentorship. She was a member of Jones Memorial United Methodist Church, was the president of the United Methodist Women’s group, volunteered for bereavement and mission committees, and sang in the choir. 

 

An animal lover at heart, Susan found solace and companionship in the company of her beloved pets including Maggie, Max, Boots, Hoosier, Snoopy, Lucy, and many others. Her passion for gardening and her affinity for chickens reflected her vibrant spirit and deep connection to nature. 

 

Susan enjoyed a long and fulfilling career in food service management. Her hard work and dedication were evident during her tenure at Linders, Bob Evans, and Pizza Hut, where she touched the lives of colleagues and customers alike. 

 

Susan will be remembered for her love of a good cup of coffee, her generous heart, her adventurous spirit, and her unwavering faith both in God and in others. Her legacy of love and generosity will continue to inspire all who were fortunate enough to know her. 

 

A celebration of Susan’s life will be held on Sunday, January 28th, 2024 at Legacy Cremation and Funeral Service in Anderson, Indiana with a viewing from 2:00 pm and the service starting at 4:30 pm. The burial will take place on Monday, January 29th at Crown Hill Cemetery in Centerville, IN.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to P.A.W.S. of Dearborn County Humane Center in Lawrenceburg, Indiana or the Alzheimer’s Association.
