Barbara Jean Hammer

January 9, 1945 — April 12, 2022

Barbara Jean “Bobbie” Hammer, 77, went home to be with her Lord Jesus Christ on Tuesday April 12, 2022, at Franklin Woods Community Hospital.

Barbara was born in Johnson City to the late Rev. John A. Scalf and Ruby Bowers Scalf. Mrs. Hammer retired from the American Red Cross after 20 years of service. Barbara was a Certified Medical Assistant and had previously attended ETSU.
Barbara was a member of By Faith Freewill Baptist Church where she served as Sunday School Teacher and a member of the church choir. She was truly a faithful servant of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

She enjoyed taking trips with her husband Earl and other family members, cooking for holiday family gatherings, hiking, and taking car rides with Earl. She especially enjoyed their trips to Niagara Falls, Washington DC, and Myrtle Beach, SC.

Barbara was a devoted wife and mother. She loved her family, loved to laugh, and she was cherished by her family and friends.

Hammer; two granddaughters, Sarah Hammer and Hannah Hammer; as well as several nieces and nephews.
