Susan Hammes

October 10, 1954 — April 3, 2021


Susan Elizabeth Hammes (born Susan Elizabeth Parsley) was born October 10, 1954 in Rockingham North Carolina to the late Howard Parsley Sr. and Grace Elizabeth Parsley.

Susan passed away peacefully on April 3rd with her family by her side.

Susan is survived by her only child Brian Andrew Hammes, his wife Lisbeth Hammes and her grandson that she loved dearly, Kaylom Marquez. She is also survived by her brother Howard Parsley Jr. and his wife Luming Parsley; her sister Prudence Lampley and her husband James "Jimmy" Lampley; and her sister Elizabeth Cannon and her husband Dale Cannon. Susan is also survived by several nieces and nephews that she loved so deeply.

Susan dedicated her life to serving and caring for others as a Nurse since the early 1980's. She took on the difficult nursing tasks of caring for the elderly, disabled, and the ill through her places of employment Sagebrook in Cedar Park, Texas and the Veteran Hospital in Temple, Texas.

Susan loved her family, checked in with her friends daily, and was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.

She, like many during these times, figured out how to use the Game Changer and other applications so she could interact and watch her grandson play baseball.

Susan's celebration of life will be at Harper-Talasek Funeral Home in Killeen, Texas, on April 10, 2021 at 10am.
