Leah Danielle Hammonds


Leah Hammonds, of Royse City, Texas, went home to be with the Lord on Monday March 4, 2024. She was born on December 6, 1976, in Fresno, California, to Charlie Topping and Cindy Kulig. She was the oldest of two siblings. Leah’s favorite childhood memories were made growing up alongside her brother and cousins. She loved drill team, dance, swimming at her grandparents’ pool, and playing Barbies. She attended Tisinger Elementary School, Wilkinson Middle School, and Poteet High School in Mesquite.  She later went on to get her Medical Billing and Coding Degree. While she truly loved her career, she considered raising her daughter, Lexi Topping, the best thing she ever did. Leah and Lexi loved watching movies, going on vacations, attending concerts and various events together, and just being each other’s person. Leah later found Randall Hammonds, the love of her life, and married him in 2020. They enjoyed building a new home together, blending their families into one that included 4 beautiful daughters, surprising each other with gifts, enjoying yummy dinners together, and playing Bingo. 

Leah loved family, a good party, country dancing, and everything purple. She was compassionate, goofy and loud, and her laugh was infectious. She will be dearly missed by her family, friends, and all of those who had the privilege of sharing in her laughter and love. 

Leah is preceded in death by her great-grandmother, Mildred Stogdill; her grandmother, Helen Marks; her grandparents, Ash and Kathy Topping; her step-father, Tom Kulig; her uncle, Danny Marks; her uncle, Bobby Topping. She is survived by her husband, Randall Hammonds; her daughters, Lexi Topping, and Alyssa, Courtney, and Addyson Hammonds; her grandfather, Wendell Marks; her father, Charlie Topping; her mother, Cindy Kulig; her brother and his family, Billy, Teloa, Reese, Caine, Heath, and Brayden Topping; her aunts, Wendy Forsgren and Tammy Belanger; her aunt, Pat Murray; her cousin and family, Summer, Justin, Noah, Elijah, and Levi Powell; her cousin, Corky Belanger; and her cousin and wife, Haley and Kyla Blassingame; her dog, PeePeeFiFiChiCi. 

A Celebration of Life will be held at 5:00 pm on Friday, March 29, at Chandlers Landing Yacht Club in Rockwall, Texas.  Friends and family are invited to join us as we honor her life and celebrate the beautiful impact she had on those she loved. As we mourn the loss of Leah, let us also celebrate the beautiful life she lived. May her spirit continue to shine brightly in our memories, and may she rest in eternal peace.
