Marie  Hamilton


On the morning of July 15, 2019, the clouds rolled back and Marie Hamilton, 88, ended her long journey with Alzheimer's in the arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She was born in Landis, Arkansas, on April 6, 1931, to Robert and Nettie (Massey) Sutterfield. After WWII, the family moved to Twin Falls, Idaho, where she graduated from Twin Falls High School in 1950. She married Emmet Hamilton on February 2, 1951; he passed away on December 10, 2017.

Emmet's job transferred the family to Logan, Utah, then to Ogden, Utah, where Marie worked in the First Security Bank loan department. After their two daughters married, she worked as a teacher's aide in a Christian school until Emmet's job moved them back to Twin Falls.

Marie and Emmet moved to Duncan, Oklahoma, after he retired. There she was an active member of Unity Baptist Church. In December 2015, they moved to Gallatin, Tennessee. She attended Impact Fellowship Church and regularly participated in activities at The Veranda, a ministry for Alzheimer's/dementia patients and their caregivers.

Wherever God led them, Emmet and Marie found a church home. Through the years, she served as a nursery worker, Sunday school teacher, VBS worker, and added her beautiful alto voice to the church choir.

She is survived by two daughters, Susan (Dennis) Johnson, Duncan, OK, and Diane (Wayne) Musson, Gallatin, TN; four grandchildren, Bryan (Heather) Johnson, Fort Smith, OK, Laura (Chad) Lee, Holdenville, OK, Caroline (Matthew) Johnson, Oklahoma City, OK, and Katie Musson, Gallatin, TN; and eight great-grandchildren.
