|Our Mimi - always in our hearts.|
Longtime Buena Vista resident, Adeline J. Hamilton, was called from the presence of loving family to meet the Lord in heaven on November 16, 2012.
Born on January 27, 1920, to John P. and Frances Faust, she married Alexander Hamilton Jr. on October 22, 1947. Adeline was well-known as an avid and skillful gardener, willing to share plants and advice with all who asked. As a homemaker, she was devoted to caring for family and friends. Her friendly face greeted patrons of the Buena Vista Post Office during her years of work there as a clerk. Above all, she will be remembered for her faith in God.
Survivors include her son, Alexander (Bonnie) Hamilton, daughters Karen Harrison and Adrienne (Dan) Jarvis; eleven grandchildren, Jennifer (Ryan), Jarrett, Whitney (Shae), Alexander, Alexandra, Emily, Scott, Nicholas, Jillian, Ethan and Jacob; and one great-granddaughter and namesake, Adelynn. She is also survived by sister-in-law, Beulah Faust, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband and by her son-in-law, Robert Harrison.
