CLINTON- On the Morning of Wednesday, December 23, 2020, at the age of 71, our beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother, answered the call to go home to Glory. There she met her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and was reunited with loved ones who had gone on before.\r\n\r\nBorn on March 11, 1949, she was adopted and predeceased by Pearl and Richard Small. On April 26, 1969, she married her true love, David Hatt Sr. in Pembroke, Maine. They were married until his death in 1983. She was also predeceased by her brother Mitchell Moores, her nephew Gregory Kinney, and her grandson Braden Hadley. She is survived by her children, Richard Hatt and his partner Sarah Carter, Elizabeth and her husband Richard Hadley, and David Hatt Jr. and his wife Johnna as well as her sister, Marilyn and her husband Eugene Kinney. She is also survived by her beloved grandchildren who were her pride and joy; Tesla and Tyler Hatt, Kaylee and her spouse Angel, Alyson and her partner Ryan Lovett, Ethan Cochrane, Gracelyn Hadley, Aiden Robbins, and Taylor and Ezra Hatt. She also survived by three Great-Grandchildren, Cora Lovett, Jackson Tolman and one yet to be born. \r\n\r\nIn her younger years, she grew up on a farm, “Sunny Dell Ares” in Pembroke. She enjoyed riding her cow up and down the driveway until she was gifted her first horse, Flash. She had believed the cow to be relieved that it no longer had to be ridden. After she married David, they moved around for his military service. They settled in their forever home in Clinton shortly before his death. She worked many jobs to make ends meet, raising three children by herself along the way.\r\n\r\nIn her later years she devoted her retirement to taking care of her beloved animals, including her Arabian mare, Grace along with chickens, rabbits, geese, ducks, goats, and cows. They were her life. Morning noon and night, she’d care for them. She also enjoyed spending time with her family. She never missed her grandchildren’s birthdays, first days of school, and dinner every night at her daughter’s house. She loved to spend time playing in the snow with her grandchildren and was always there first thing in the morning to see them open their Christmas presents.\r\n\r\nShe was always a phone call away and someone to talk to on a late-night drive home. She will be sorely missed. When asked what she wanted others to know about her, she stated “That I tried my best.”\r\n\r\nThere will be no memorial service. Burial will take place at the Veterans Cemetery in Augusta in the spring.\r\n\r\nAn online guestbook may be signed, and memories shared at www.familyfirstfuneralhomes.com\r\n\r\nArrangements are by Lawry Brothers Funeral & Cremation Care, 107 Main St., Fairfield.
