GREENFIELD - Alexandria "Ally" Katlyn Hampton, 20, passed away on Monday (5-5-14) in Boston, surrounded by her loving family. Born on Jan. 26, 1994 in Greenfield, Ally is the beloved daughter and best friend of Jeffrey D. and Bobbi-Jo (Brant-Annear) Hampton.
Ally attended Greenfield public schools and was a 2012 graduate of Greenfield High School, in which she took her classes through K12 Virtual International Academy. She was a member of the National Honor Society, Yearbook Committee and manager of the soccer team before returning to the playing field as captain of her varsity soccer team. Ally and her family were very proud of her academic achievements and awards. She also attended Greenfield Community College, where she hoped to earn a degree in the Arts.
Ally volunteered at the Greenfield Public Library and helped her family create the Relay for Life team, "Team Blast", and as a talented artist, she designed most of the team's shirts. She also helped organize local blood drives to benefit Boston's Children's Hospital.
Ally loved art, drawing, music, reading, video games, midnight movies, drive-ins, fireworks, parades and soccer. She also loved road trips and had a great love for animals; aquariums and zoos were favorite destinations of hers, as were museums of all kinds. Ally loved to visit festivals and fairs year round and one of her favorite annual events was the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C.
Most of all Ally just loved spending time with her parents, family and her cat, Julia.
Ally was such a beautiful, intelligent and caring person. She touched the lives of everyone she came across with her beautiful blue eyes, quick smile, charm, wit, humor, grace, dignity and compassion.
No matter the circumstances, Ally always had a positive attitude and was a constant source of joy and inspiration to us all. Ally will be deeply missed by her friends, family and especially her mom and dad.
Survivors include her parents, Jeff and Bobbi Hampton; maternal grandparents, Richard and Carole Annear, and her aunts and uncles: Warren Hampton, Carole Musante, James Annear, Kimberly Brant, L. Shawn Hampton, Shannon Mundt, Jennifer Daignault, Robert Daignault, "Auntie" Beth Goly and their families.
