The Hammond family made their home in the Clyde area and she graduated from Clyde High School with the class of 1950. She continued her education, attending Aakers Business College in Grand Forks. She married Floyd Eisenzimmer in 1952 at the Clyde Methodist Church where she was a baptized and confirmed member. They established their home in Devils Lake and lived, worked and raised their two sons here. As a mother of two, she worked hard to help provide for the family needs. She worked at Rands Department Store, Lake Region Livestock, at the Elks Lodge, Artclair Motel, Southam Bar and ACI Telecommunications. She was at one time co-owner and operator of Northland Homes. She also sold AVON for many years. She was a people person and being active in the work force and the community kept her spirit alive. She loved to cook and many of her jobs gave her the opportunity to share her delicious creations and also to teach others many of her secrets to good cooking. It brought her great joy to see her children and grandchildren’s enthusiasm to learn good cooking skills from her. She was always very active in the community and served on several local boards and as a volunteer for many events and projects of the Lake Region.  She was the greatest supporter and biggest fan of her sons and grandchildren as she watched them participate in sports and other school activities. She was an avid reader and in later years enjoyed books on tape.
