Ann Marie Hamby passed away at the age of 80 on Saturday, December 5, 2020. She was a loving wife, a proud mother, and a doting grand and great-grandmother.

Ann was born in McKinney, TX on October 26, 1940 to David and Mary Allen, and was proud to call this close-knit community home for many years. Ann married the love of her life, “Smiling” Tom, on March 25, 1960 - a marriage that would endure over 60 years! Together they raised four children, daughter, Julie, and three sons, Kip, Jason and Sy.

Ann cherished time with her family and friends. Music, especially the piano, was dear to her as was her relationship with the Lord; cultivated with prayer, reading Scripture and sharing. She was a gifted writer and stressed the importance of education, having returned to college later in life to complete her degree in education.

Ann was preceded in death by her parents, David and Mary Allen, stepfather Raymond Smith, grandson Jack Hamby, great-grandson Asher Greene, and her nephew Chip Allen. She is survived by her husband Tom, her four children, Kip and wife Shari, Julie and husband Ken, Jason and wife Stephanie and Sy and wife Kelley, her brothers David and wife LaVonne Allen and Dr. Charlie and wife Shelly Allen, and several cousins, nieces and nephews. Did we mention grandkids? Eighteen grandkids - and eleven great-grandkids!
