September 4, 1930 — January 3, 2023

Lois Smith Hammett, 92, of Spartanburg, SC, died Tuesday, January 3, 2023 at Spartanburg Regional Hospice Home. Born September 4, 1930 in Converse, SC, she was the daughter of the late Fred Lee and Edith Mae Delph Smith and the wife of the late Carlisle Edward Hammett.
