Lois Hamilton

June 23, 1949 — December 6, 2022


Lois Eileen (Hackman) Hamilton entered into the loving embrace of the angels on Tuesday, December 6, 2022. She passed peacefully, with her beloved daughters by her side, and lifted up in prayer by so many people whose lives she touched and who loved her dearly. Lois was a kind, gentle soul. She saw the good in everyone, and never passed judgement. Her capacity for empathy was unmatched. She possessed a delightfully wicked sense of humor, and a mischievous streak that could elicit a grin from even the most stoic and stern person. Her beautiful smile and laugh were infectious. She loved Fleetwood Mac, The Grateful Dead, Meat Loaf (the artist, not the food), the Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles, and had a lifelong crush on actor Sam Elliott.

Her love for her daughters ran deeper than the ocean, and she told them so every single day. Lois never ended a telephone conversation with one of her daughters without saying, “I love you more than anything in the world”, at least ten times. Her tremendous love will live on in the hearts of all who loved her, and will endure until we joyfully meet again in Heaven.

Lois was predeceased by her parents, Herbert and Grace Hackman of Coopersburg, several aunts and uncles, and her former husbands, Bruce Arnold (father of Lori) and Karl Hamilton (father of Erinn). She is survived by her daughter, Lori L. and her three sons; her daughter, Erinn Hamilton (wife of Robert Proby), sister Gail Cerniglia, and cousin Bobby Dragotta. She also leaves behind dear friends Grant and Cindy Ziegler, Linda Thomas, and Kelly Moseng, all of whom cared for her like family and showed her endless kindness.

Lois did not wish for any public funeral or memorial services to be held. Her daughters will be in attendance for her cremation and disposition of her ashes will take place in accordance with Lois’s wishes. In lieu of a service, the family requests that donations be made to:
Quakertown Community Outreach
Care of Karen and Dave Hammerschmidt

“So I close my eyes softly
‘Til I become that part of the wind
That we all long for sometime…
And to those that I love
Like a ghost through a fog
Like a charmed hour and a haunted song
And the Angel of my dreams…”

“Angel”, written by Robert Lawrence Welch, performed by Fleetwood Mac
