Hampton, Dessie F
Obituary of Dessie F. Hampton. With the help of the Lord to guide my mind with words. I will try to write the obituary of my precious mother, to whom I was so close as a child and in belief in church and the Lord.

Mommy was born August 1, 1916 to L.D. (Dow) and Annie Johnson at Speight, Kentucky. God called her from this earth to a better place February 12, 1997, making her stay on earth 80 years, 6 months and 19 days.

On November 30, 1932 she met and married Hassel Hampton. They were married for 64 years. She leaves to mourn her passing her loving husband, Hassel; two sons, Leo Hampton and wife Carolyn of River Rouge, Michigan; Robert Hampton and wife Jackie, of Long Fork Road, Virgie, Ky.; and daughter, Ola Mae Hampton and husband Edgar, of Robinson Creek Road, Virgie, Ky. She leaves 12 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren, one of whom she never lived to see, and one great-great-grandson.

Mommy joined Joppa Old Regular Baptist church at Melvin, Kentucky, one Sunday in July of 1948. After she and Daddy moved to Michigan she would come back and go to church when she could. She always wanted to be at church every foot washing. She was baptized by Elders Jerry Hall and Bud Johnson.

Mommy lived her life loving to meet people and talking to them. She also loved to cook and have people eat with her. She enjoyed helping other people through sad times. She loved to raise a big garden. She canned and put food in her freezers; she gave the food to others. Her heart was filled with love for other people.

Mommy fought a hard battle with cancer for two years. When she felt really bad, she still took care of Daddy. I could never forget how hard she worked to take care of Daddy and cope with the pain she felt. She tried to comfort us children, so we wouldn't worry so much, but our hearts ached anyway. She was so special, but when God wanted her, we had to let her go. I hope to be in Heaven with her some sweet day; where we won't have to cry so hard anymore. Written by the baby daughter and sister in hope, Ola Mae Hampton.
