08/20/1932 - 05/01/2020 Our mom was reunited with dad, her beloved husband Roy Hamilton, on May 1, 2020 and welcomed home into the arms of her Lord Jesus Christ. Known affectionately by many as Omi, she was a dedicated and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and was the foundation of the family. Born in Danzig, Poland on August 20, 1932, her life was irrevocably changed by World War II. At the tender age of 12, she helped her mother escape a Russian Prison Camp, allowing them to flee and ensuring their survival. After the war, she met a young G.I. who told her on the first day he was going to marry her. She laughed at the crazy American, yet their union lasted over 50 years. A woman of unswerving faith, her great passions, aside from family, included gardening and playing dominoes - she could play a double-15 set and add numbers incredibly quickly. She was a voracious reader, and loved reading the Bible, history and current events. A prolific singer with a soprano voice, she sang with choirs around the South Bay and even performed in Carnegie Hall. Her great love was Cabrillo Beach. Omi loved the ocean, swimming and doing the twist in the surf line for clams. She also loved feeding every seagull for miles around, to the point where the birds flocked to her car whenever it arrived. She was crowned Queen of the Cabrillo Beach Polar Bear Club in 1974 and instilled a love of the ocean in her children and grandchildren as well. She will be fondly remembered by all who knew her, including the countless friends her children and grandchildren brought home, feeding and caring for them all. She is survived by her children, Duane (Melissa) Hamilton, Rick (Rovita) Hamilton, and Stephanie (Jeff Abreu) Hamilton, grandchildren Brian (Christina) Weathers, Amanda Salazar, Arthur (Ashlleigh) Salazar, Jonathan Ferretti, and Allie Hamilton, and great-grandchildren Lincoln Roy Weathers and Avary Jane Salazar. Memorial service to be announced at a later date.

I loved this dear lady. She was so appreciative of any thing that was done for her. I got to know her better (thank you God) when we attended a bereavement class that I was able to locate in Claremont. God will welcome her in His arms as she is reunited with her precious and loving husband. I will never forget you and your deep faith. Loretta

My sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Omi. She was an amazing soul and will be dearly missed. Although she wasnt blood related, she felt like family with her welcoming aura.

Ive enjoyed our phone calls these last several years. I loved talking politics with her. We in total agreement. I will miss her and I know her family and friends will miss her so very much. She was a work horse around the house. I wish I could have heard her sing. Can one of you kids share something she sang on Facebook if you have a recording? Roy used to brag about how wonderful she could sing. Id love to hear her voice. In loving memory, Bonnie

What an absolutely beautiful woman with a loving warm, gracious soul. I loved listening to her stories and just being around her made me a better person. She will be dearly missed walking the neighborhood, smiling and waving, most times pushing Lincoln or walking with Stephanie. Omi touched my heart and Ill never be the same. You can see her beautiful soul in her children and grandchildren. I will miss her. My prayers are with the family she loved so much.
