Dorothy E. Hammond

Dorothy Ellis Hammond, 86, of Kingsport, entered into her Heavenly Reward on Sunday, September 10, 2023, surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Scott Co., VA, where she grew up in a family of eight children. She was always a hard worker whether it was outside where she loved to be helping her father or helping her family in so many ways. Dorothy worked for Kingsport City Schools as a special needs bus driver. In between and after retirement she loved working with her beautiful flowers and watching her family grow.


She was preceded in death by her parents, Victor and Victoria Gibson; sister, Edith Lane; and brothers, Ernest, Billy Ray, and Otto Gibson.


Dorothy is survived by her loving husband of 66 years, Marvin Hammond; daughters, Brenda Meade and husband Harold, Debera Manis and husband Tony, and Jennifer Snook and husband Kevin; four grandchildren, Chad Meade (Sarah), Andrew Meade (Lisa), Haley McConnell (Matt), and Taylor Woodward (Jacob); six great-grandchildren, Avery, Aiden, Camryn, Liam, Millie and Brett; sisters, Geneva France, Phyllis Reed (Ed), Olene Wright; and many cousins.


The family would like to send a special thank you to the staff at Holston Rehabilitation and the staff of Amedisys Hospice.
