Funeral and Cremation Services
Ruth Hammond, 84, of Coventry, RI passed gently out of this world surrounded by her loving family. Ruth was pre-deceased by her husband, William Hammond.
Born in Providence RI, Ruth trained as a licensed practical nurse. That training would help her immensely as she raised six children with love and the strength of a lioness. After her last child started school, Ruth worked as an office administrator at an auto parts distributor and at the Rhode Island Department of Health.
After retiring, she worked part time at the West Warwick Senior Center. Ruth loved music and dancing, especially country music. Ruth is survived by her daughter Helene Anderson and partner Carl Floyd, daughter Mary Berroteran and husband Al, son Steven Giammarco and wife Iris, daughter Christine Giammarco, daughter-in-laws Carol Conti Giammarco and Carol Cortellesa Giammarco, ten grandchildren and three great grandchildren. She is pre-deceased by her sons Giglio and John Giammarco, and her former husbands Edward Chamberlain, Clifford Tuchon and Giglio G. Giammarco.
Services will be held at Olson & Parent Funeral Home, 417 Plainfield St, Providence on Tuesday June 7 from 4:30-6:30. Cremation will occur instead of burial. In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to St Elizabeth Home, 1 St Elizabeth Way, East Greenwich RI 02818.
