Joyce Lynn Hammer Nelson

Beloved wife and mother, Joyce Lynn Hammer Nelson, entered into her eternal rest on September 16, 2017. She was born unto loving parents (Nicholas A. Hammer and Maurine Hines Hammer) on October 24, 1931. Her early childhood years were spent in the Heights in Houston, Texas. As a teenager, her family moved to Seabrook, Texas which became more than just a place to reside, rather a community of great affection and identity for her and her five siblings. In Seabrook, Joyce met and married her husband, Robert C. Nelson. (It is believed to have taken some wooing.) Joyce and Clayton chose to live in Kemah, Texas to raise a family.

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and a sister, Yvonne. She is survived by her brothers; Gerald Nick, David Russell, and Earl Hines and a sister Cherry Sue. She is also survived by her three children; Terryl Lynn, Robert Junior, and Jon Nicholas. Three surviving grandchildren are; Tria Lynn Moss, Nicholas Nelson and Natalie Nelson and five great-grandchildren; Madison Corbin, Bowen Corbin, Maisie Corbin, Abbey Corbin and Henry Nelson. She has numerous cherished nieces and nephews surviving.

Joyce (“Mimi”) will be greatly missed, however, “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.”  Psalm 116:15

A graveside service will be held on Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 1:00PM at the Seabrook Cemetery in Seabrook, TX

  2. Joyce Nelson will always hold a special
    Place in my heart . Going down Memeory
    Lane one of my earliest childhood memories
    of church is Sis Joyce leading the song
    service at Seabrook UPC. She always had
    a smile and put her heart into all she did .
    Her and Bro Clayton were THE best at
    entertaining Young people …whether it
    was a social, playing games or
    opening their home to everyone.
    Their Love for people was such a gift to
    Me and soo many. Thank you Sis Joyce for being
    being such A Faithful servant of Jesus
    and showing the world His Light and Love.
    I love you .
