Deseret News, The (Salt Lake City, UT) - August 5, 2000, Deceased Name: Obituary: Anita Smoot Hammond, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, died Wednesday, August 2, 2000. Born on September 27, 1916 in Provo, she was the daughter of Harlow E. and Anita P. Smoot, the grand-daughter of Senator/ Apostle Reed Smoot , and the great-grand-daughter of Abraham O. Smoot. Anita grad-uated from Brigham Young University High School and then from Brigham Young University at age 19 with high honors, at which time she married her long-time sweetheart, Roy B. Hammond. A devoted and supportive wife, she accompanied Roy to medical school in Washington D.C. and then lived in the family home with their son, Roy Allen, while her husband served in the Air Force in New Guinea for three years. They subsequently established a medical practice in Provo and had three more children: Kristine, Richard, and Robert. Anita served for many years in the Ladies Auxiliary of the Provo Chamber of Commerce, the Utah County Medical Auxiliary, and the Utah State Medical Auxiliary, acting as president of each of these organizations, as well as serving for one term on the BYU Alumni Board. She had been a member of the Phila Nada Club and the Riverside Country Club since their inceptions. She was active in the LDS Church throughout her life. Anita loved golf, skiing, and tennis and enjoyed fishing and hunting with her husband. She did superb needlework and was an excellent cook; however, her greatest love was her family and her greatest joy came from serving them. We celebrate her life, her love, and her example and will find joy in her memory and the sense of "family" she instilled in each of us.

Anita is survived by her husband, Dr. Roy B. Hammond; her sons: Dr. Roy A. Hammond, Richard Hammond, and Robert Hammond; her daughter, Kristine Hammond; 16 grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; and a bro-ther, Reed Smoot , of Salt Lake City. A private family service will be held in her honor. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that contributions be made to the Maternity Department at Utah Valley Hospital. Notes of loving memory are welcome and may be sent to Dr. Hammond. Services are being held under the direction of Berg Mortuary. Burial 8-5-2000, age 83.
