Garnet L. Hampp graduated to glory, peacefully, on February 2, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. surrounded by her loving family. Garnet was born on March 1, 1935 in Moxahala, Ohio. She was the beloved daughter of Clarence P. and Viola M. (Saxton) Dunwoody. Her oldest brother, Carl Dunwoody, lovingly called her his precious gem. Garnet was a loving wife to Donald F. Hampp who passed away on August 30, 2012, adoring mother to Gladys Hartman, Anita (Ray) Clark, Teresa (Ronnie) Spring, Lisa (Rusty) Jenkins, and Donald (Christine) Hampp, and proud grandma to Chuck (Lisa) Elson, Melissa (George) Glass, and Ashley (Tim) Pennybaker, Mandy (Ben Fischer) Jenkins and Andrew Clark, Christopher (Abbie) Spring and MaLisa Spring, Chelsea (Dan) Woodward and Kaitlin (Andy) Wills, and Rachel, Donna, and Treva Hampp. She adored her great-grandchildren Madison and Logan Elson, Emilie and Gaige Glass, Lindsey Pennybaker, Maisie Spring, Parker Woodward and Adelyn Wills. She is also survived by two sisters Nellie (Ben) Kirkbride and Juanita NoGrady, two special nephews whom she thought of as her own, Mike and Ray Kirkbride, special niece Michele Thompson, and numerous nieces and nephews whom she was very close to.\

In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her siblings Carl, Alfred, Danny, Edna, Leonard, Helen, Clarence JR (Junior), Bill, Kate, Wanda, Ethel, and Linda, and her son-in-law Wayne Hartman.

Garnet loved the Lord and walked with him throughout her life. She was a member of Meadow Farm Church, loved to garden, put in vegetables and fruit for the winter, crochet, sew, ceramics, playing board games, and spending time with her family. She enjoyed playing euchre with her family and friends. She crocheted afghans, baby blankets and sweater sets for the babies born into her extended family. She sewed darling outfits for her granddaughters who were so proud to wear them. She was a 4-H advisor and assistant Girl Scout Leader. She loved to bake pies for the Meadow Farm Church stand at the Muskingum County Fair. Her favorite requested dessert for church dinners was her berry cake. She shared many stories of her childhood to her children and grandchildren and these will be etched in their memories forever.

We wish to thank Genesis Hospice for the excellent care they provided our mother these last few weeks. A very special thank you to Kim for her faithful, loving, compassionate care of our mother over the past 15 months. We were also blessed to have excellent help from Tracey, Kim, Lois, and Amber.
