Obituary for Bettye Rae Hamilton

July 15, 1927 - January 23, 2020
Owensboro, Kentucky | Age 92


Bettye Rae Hamilton, 92, of Owensboro, left her earthly home to join her Savior and her Sweetheart on January 23, 2020. She was born July 15, 1927 in San Angelo, TX to the late Mid and Eva Lena Miller. Bettye found joy in serving the Lord together with her late husband, W.E. "Bill" Hamilton. Together, they remained focused on building God's kingdom each and every day.

Bettye was the backbone of her family and her husband's strength. She was wise, loving and was one to hold everything together. She was a great nurturer, a Sunday School teacher, and always found the good in everyone. Her faith in Jesus was strong and she remained completely devoted to God and her family throughout her life and after 92 years, she is now where she has wanted to be; in Heaven, celebrating.

Bettye was also preceded in death by her siblings, Mid Miller, Max Miller, Steve Miller, Dorothy Weaver and her twin sister, Bobbye Mae Miller and son-in-law, Fred Powell.

She is survived by her two sons, Blake E. Hamilton (Kala) and Mark D. Hamilton; daughter, Barbara A. Powell; 10 granddaughters and 22 great-grandchildren, who knew her as GG.

In celebration of her life, a service will be held 10:00 a.m. Monday January 27, 2020 at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory with Dr. Paul Strahan officiating. Visitation will be Sunday 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. and after 9:00 a.m. Monday at the funeral home. Burial will take place at Owensboro Memorial Gardens.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that expressions of sympathy be made to Hospice of Western Kentucky.
