Holly Renada (Adams) Hamilton, 32, died in a house fire in Republic, OH on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012.
Holly was born Dec. 27, 1980 to Willy and Chris Adams. She has a brother, Joshua Adams and a sister, Heidi Adams. Holly attended Bellevue High School.
In August 2004, Holly and her future husband, Joseph D. Hamilton (Joe) were blessed with their first son, Jaxon D. Hamilton. Holly's daughter, Olivia R. Bondy, was a very proud and loving older sister. Soon after, in May 2005, Holly and Joe married.
The following year, another son was born; Linkin J. Hamilton arrived in August 2006. The family was complete.
Holly was a woman of strength and sensitivity. She had a unique ability to sense the needs of the people around her and did all she could to meet those needs. Of course, her first priorities were always her three children.
Holly ensured her children were behaved, but knew how to have fun. She and Joe instilled values such as dedication, work ethic, empathy, and compassion into their children. She regularly created inimitable gifts to friends and family. Her gifts were made by her hands and always came from her heart.
Holly is survived by her grandparents, Jean Adams and Renada "Ren" Funni; her parents, Willy (Lisa Adams, Step-mother) and Chris Adams, Bellevue; her brother, Joshua Adams; her sister and niece, Heidi Adams and Destiny Gurley; and her three step-sisters, Cassie Fearing, Breea Fearing and son (Alexander Lewis), Ashley (Kimmet) Wickert (Jason Wickert, Step-brother-in-law).
