Avis was raised in Hobart, Indiana. At fourteen years of age she met, and five years later married her childhood sweetheart, Charles Hamilton. In 1953 they moved to Sacramento, California, and settled in Danville in 1972.
Avis attended Trinity Lutheran Church in Walnut Creek. She was active in the ministry for over 30 years visiting the elderly and shut-ins in nursing homes weekly.
Avis loved to golf and was a part of the 18 Hole Ladies Golf Group of Castlewood Country Club.
Avis is preceded in death by her mother, Wally Truitt and her brother Eugene Truitt.

She will be deeply missed by her grandchildren Chavis and Phoebe Hamilton, Romy, Shyle (Martha), Molly and Logan Malavey, Bret (Wendi), Tyler (Melissa), Rory Williams, and her great-grandson, Howard Charles. She also will be missed by her faithful canine companion, Stretch.

Thank you, dear cousins, for your support and love. Mom will be missed terribly by not only our family, but all those that she touched. She never had a harsh word to say to anyone. She was happy when WE were happy. May her memory be eternal.

Aunt Avis will be missed by all of us. Her cheerfulness, generous heart, and loving nature is a memory that can bring a smile to each of our faces. Uncle Chuck, Dirk, Kim, Tammy and all her grandchildren that she loved so much will be in my prayers each day. May you each find the strength to carry on her legacy of love as she would want. I love you all.
