Colleen Hamilton

Colleen Hamilton passed away peacefully on May 31, 2016, at her home after a long struggle with kidney disease that was being treated with dialysis. She was born June 26, 1951 in Brantford, Ontario to the late William A. “Becky” Alward and Genevieve B. (McInerney) Alward.

She was the loving wife of Robert D. Hamilton of Quispamsis and beloved mother to Kevin (Karen) of Willow Grove, Trevor (Nobuko) of Kanazawa, Japan, Jeff (Kizzy) of Rothesay and Matt (James) of Saint John. Her biggest joy in the world were her grandchildren Liam, Kaito, Amanda, Michael, Jacob, Austin and Ryan who will all miss her greatly. She is also survived by her two sisters Lorraine (George Crawley) and Cathy (Gary Thibodeau), nephews Michael and Mark Crawley and Barry and Paul Thibodeau; as well as three grandnephews, two grandnieces, several cousins and brother–in–law Bill Hamilton (Virginia) and one aunt Ina McInerney.

Colleen was a faithful member of St. James the Less Anglican Church where she served in many different capacities including the Cursillo movement. She was a piper in the Heather Society Pipe band. Colleen enjoyed swimming and travelling until her illness curtailed these activities. Her greatest pleasure was when she was surrounded by friends and family especially her grandchildren and grandnieces and nephews.

Special thanks goes to King’s County Homecare and the staff at the Regional Hospital Dialysis Unit.
