Funeral services for Treva Irene Hammond, 86, West Plains, Missouri, will be held at 2:00 p.m., Sunday, January 7, 2018 in the Rose Chapel at Robertson-Drago Funeral Home.
Treva was a well known and loved business woman in West Plains for over 55 years. She was born in Gravity, Iowa, in 1931, to Ed & Hazel Mosier. Along with her siblings, Pauline, Norma & Delmar, the family moved to Arkansas when she was 13. Her parents and siblings precede her in death. Treva met Dale Hammond, now deceased, her sophomore year of high school and they married in 1948. While Dale & Treva were both working at the local shoe factory they were blessed by one daughter, Kaye and one son, Rod. They lost one infant daughter, Karen. In the early 1960’s, she and Dale built and ran Hammond Station. Although she continued to work at the shoe factory, she rose early each morning to make sandwiches for the local fishermen who raved that she made the best around. After approximately 27 years, the station sold and she opened Time & Talent, which she owned & operated for 33 years. By the 1970’s, her greatest joys were added to the family – her grandchildren. Her first grandchild, Casey Adam, passed away shortly after birth. In the years that followed, she loved spoiling Jodi, Kate & Terry. With the arrival of each great grandchild, her heart was more and more full. She treasured visits from Jackson, Carter, Harrison, AnnaJo & Grant. Her life was full of the things she found enjoyment in ~ loving & serving her customers who became lifelong friends & felt like family, attending church at China Union, reading, listening to southern gospel music, and loving her family.
She had the beautiful honor of seeing Jesus for the first time Wednesday, January 3, 2018.
She is survived by her daughter Kaye Hicks and husband, Homer, and her son Rod Hammond, all of West Plains. Her granddaughters, Jodi Widhalm & husband Doug of Nixa and Kate Hill & husband Cliff of Jefferson City, and one grandson, Terry Hammond of West Plains. Her great grandchildren are Jackson Widhalm, Carter Widhalm, Harrison Widhalm, Grant Widhalm and AnnaJo Hill.
