Destiny was a wonderful wife, daughter, sister, and friend. She touched all of our lives deeply with her love, compassion and kindness.

Her greatest joys in life were spending time with friends and family as well as her incredible talent for anything artistic. She was an advocate for many, including the unborn, those in poverty and for chronic pain patients due to her own experience with intractable migraines.

Destiny will always be remembered for her courage facing persistent and overwhelming physical and mental pain. Though she took her own life, we are comforted in knowing that she is at peace in the presence of God.

She is survived by her husband, Kyle Allan Bradford as well as her brothers Justin Martin Hammer and Levi James Hammer.

She is preceded in death by her mother Cynthia Lee Hammer and brother Dustin Albert Hammer.

The family welcomes donations to “The American Chronic Pain Association” ( as an expression of sympathy instead of flowers.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, December 5, 2020 at 10:00 AM at Memorial Redwood Mortuary and Cemetery, 6500 South Redwood Road, West Jordan, Utah 84123. A viewing will be held prior beginning at 9:00 AM. Interment to follow at the same location.

I’m very sorry for your loss. I would like to offer my condolences to all those lives she touched and loved. I also would like to Thank you for sharing the outcome of her personal trails she dealt with in life. To me, one who also suffers from chronic migraines, and major manic depressive disorder, I believe with all my heart she lasted as long as the lord wanted her to stay on earth. She was needed elsewhere. I have a hard time saying this to any family of a loved one who has committed suicide, I believe she had the courage to finally be happy. I’m sure you all miss her very much, yet it’s our grieving that a loved one is that took their own life that hurts. Yet, remember... she’s happy now. If only some people could understand, she didn’t do it because she didn’t love anyone. I’m so very sorry for your loss. However, I’m glad she’s not in any kind of pain anymore.
