July 26, 1947 – February 6, 2015
Sammie Sue Defenbaugh Hamon, or Susie, as she liked to be called, was born in Grafton, West Virginia, the daughter of Irma and Paul Defenbaugh. Susie grew up in Grafton and continued her education after public schools, studying nursing. After graduation, she worked as a nurse in Pittsburgh until she moved to Texas with her two children, where she worked with medical records and insurance and volunteered at local hospitals. She married Dexter Boone Hamon on July 14, 1984, and settled in Clear Lake to raise her family.
Always ready with a hug and a smile, Susie never hesitated to make a new friend and will be remembered by many of those she befriended as she will by her family. Susie’s children and grandchildren were the joy of her life. She was never without a picture.
