Obituary Notices and Memorials

HAMILTON, Joan Fay Knight
HAMILTON, Joan Fay Knight born on December 9, 1946 in Titusville, Pennsylvania to Earl Knight and Fredrel Morris Knight. They later moved to Palmdale, California where she met the love of her life Harold Hamilton whom she married in a double wedding with her sister Linda. Joan and Harold were married 51 years and had 8 children, 23 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. To say that she was a beloved wife and mother is an understatement to anyone that knew her, to say that she was amazing would be more accurate. She worked with kids for years at Acton School and was affectionately known as Gramalton by her adoring fans. Later when she resigned, the school gave her a special assembly and named it officially Joan Hamilton Day. Joan then went on to open the very first after school Latch Key Kids Program. She was dedicated and loved by all the kids that she ever encountered. Her family and anyone that ever met Joan will miss an amazing woman with a can do attitude who only stood 5 feet tall on a good day. Joan passed away at her home in Richland, Washington surrounded by her family that loved her. The hole that she left in her family will only be consoled by the memories she left with them. She will be missed. Joan died the way that she lived, loved by all that knew her. Express your thoughts and memories on our online Guestbook at
