Marjorie Jean Hammans, of Purcellville, Virginia, was born February 14, 1935, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the daughter of George and Mary Regan (deceased), and passed away peacefully on June 14, 2020, at Inova Loudoun Hospital. Marjorie was a loving sister, mother, aunt, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She worked at Drug Fair/Rite Aid in Purcellville as a pharmacy assistant for over 20 years.
Though she lived in northern Virginia for nearly 50 years, Marjorie never fully lost her Boston accent or her taste for lobster, and she was a life-long Red Sox fan. Marjorie enjoyed visiting her extended family in Massachusetts and the family cabin in Deer Isle, Maine, gardening, bird watching, researching family genealogy, and spending time with loved ones.
Marjorie is predeceased by former husband, Wayne Hammans of Philomont; and sister, Janet Glennon of Burlington, MA. She is survived by her brother, Thomas Regan and wife Dorothy of Nashua, N.H.; son, Ronald and wife Lynne of Lusby, MD; son, Robert of Purcellville; daughter, Linda McMurrer of Funkstown, MD; son, Dale and wife Maria of Leesburg; grandchildren, Heather Donmoyer and husband Craig, Michael McMurrer and wife Melissa, Jessica McMurrer, Brett Hammans and wife Crystal, Katie Hammans, Zac Hammans; six great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews in New England.
A private funeral service will be on July 10 at Hall Funeral Home, Purcellville, VA, followed by burial at Ebenezer Cemetery, Round Hill, VA. Marjorie was a dedicated philanthropist to numerous health and environmental organizations. Donations to American Heart Association or World Wildlife Fund in memory of Marjorie Hammans are encouraged in lieu of flowers.
