Cathy Hamlett Obituary

Cathy Steadman Hamlett, age 75, of Rome passed away peacefully at her home on Monday, February 19, 2024. Cathy was a 1966 graduate of Pepperell High School. She earned her B.S. degree from Berry College in 1970. God and family were the center of her life. Happiness for Cathy meant sharing time with family and extended relatives and praising the Lord in song. She put her trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, and she loved attending church and reading and hearing God’s Word. Cathy had a wide range of interests that she shared with family and friends, including horseback riding, biking, traveling, antiquing, and playing church hymns on the piano. She taught high school math in Floyd County for several years. Then she worked in the insurance business. Not only was she a very good wife to Gary, she was also an integral part of establishing and growing his insurance business. She later worked at Walmart.  She will be greatly missed.

Cathy was preceded in death by her parents, Alton and Eunice Steadman. She is survived by her college sweetheart, constant companion and adoring husband of 56 years, Gary; son, Alan Hamlett and his wife, Jane of Cedartown, Georgia; daughter, Dana Seppala and her husband, John of Newberry, Florida; three grandsons, Aaron Luke, Mark, and Matthew Seppala; sisters, Nanci Steadman and Joanne Breeden (Gary); her aunt, Jane Mulkey (Lawrence); her brother-in-law, Ralph Hamlett (Susan) and four nieces. 

Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Friday, February 23, 2024 in the Parnick Jennings, Sr. Memorial Chapel of Good Shepherd Funeral Home.  An interment service will be held immediately following the funeral at Oaknoll Memorial Gardens.
