Shirley Virginia Hammond,75, of Elgin, passed away early Friday morning surrounded by her family, June 9, 2023.  She was born on September 4, 1947, in Houston, Texas to Wilbur and Willie Maude Cottle.

Shirley met her husband, Mabin Wendell Hammond in October of 1976 and they married on January 7, 1977. Shirley and Wendell both worked to build what they aspired to have. After Wendell’s retirement, they moved to Elgin, Texas so Shirley could care for her terminally ill father. Once in Elgin, they purchased and operated Powermaster Hobby Products.
