Jean Hammond Death, Obituary – Please accept our sincerest condolences on the loss of Jean Hammond, who was a member of the Peebles Ladies Curling Club. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Our sincerest condolences are extended to you and your family on the loss of Jean Hammond. We are forced to tell you the tragic news that she has died away, and it is with a sad heart that we do so. As a direct result of the significant amount of time and effort that Jean invests in the sport of curling, she was able to achieve the level of accomplishment necessary to take first place in the Scottish Seniors Championship in the year 2012.
This touching eulogy to Jean’s friend Jean was written by Barbara, Maggie, and Valerie, all of whom played on the Scottish Seniors team with Jean. They then forwarded it to me. What else can be said about Jean other the facts that he is a devoted friend, an outstanding teammate, and a fierce competitor when they take to the ice? We were all aware that the floor needed to be cleared before she began performing due to the power of her voice, and as soon as she began performing, we cleared the floor. Because of the force of her voice, the floor needed to be cleared. She was a lot of joy to be around and a treat to have in the company when she wasn’t skating. When she wasn’t skating, she was a delight.
She made everyone around her happier just by being there. It will be difficult to fill the vacuum that she leaves behind in many important ways for a significant length of time to come, as she will be dearly missed for a long amount of time already. Jean was a major contributor to our success in our very first competition as a group, which resulted in us taking first place in the Scottish Seniors Championship and then in the World Seniors Championships, both of which were held in Denmark. This was our very first competition together and we won both of these competitions. Our very first competition as a team resulted in two victories for us, and we were victorious in each of them.
The very first competition that we participated in as a group resulted in two triumphs for us, and we prevailed in each one of those competitions. This triumph signified the very first step on our route to become world champions in our respective age divisions, and it paved the way for the remainder of our trip by establishing the standard by which we would judge the rest of our experience.
