Margaret N. Hamilton, 80, also known as Mom, Nan, GG, Auntie Madge and Maggie, passed away Tuesday at Roseville Kaiser Medical Center following a long illness. Maggie was born in Exning, England in 1933. Her adolescence was spent with family, friends, and thoroughbred horses. Maggie was a loving sister, making sure to tease her little brother, Keith, at every chance presented to her. In fact, Maggie quite liked to tease most of the loved ones in her life. She was a natural with horses and found her first occupations around the stables and racetracks. Maggie, though comfortable mucking out stalls and joking around, could clean up quite nicely. She even managed to win a beauty contest or two in her late teens. She met her husband, Chuck Hamilton, at a dance while wearing a strapless, flared, houndstooth dress. It must have been a lucky dress because Chuck was enamored. He met Maggie at the next dance where they talked outdoors under the spring stars. It was immediate love. Chuck wasted no time; after this dance, he announced his intentions to Maggie's father. The two were married in England in 1953. Maggie and Chuck moved to America in 1954. They traveled across the nation, living in many states and making lasting friendships along the way. Maggie's bombshell blonde (or other fashionable color of the season) hair was kept short and curled. She made sure her lipstick was always on, even if she only had to run out to collect the mail. In 1962, Maggie and Chuck welcomed their only child, Lisa, into the world. It took nine years to become parents, and Lisa was their most beloved gift. The Hamilton family continued to travel, living in three countries and over 20 states by Maggie's 45th birthday. These were busy years filled with supportive friends, family, and memories. After finally settling in the Seattle area, Maggie became a Nana in 1983 when Lisa gave birth to her daughter, Kristina. Maggie moved to California and spent the next three decades with her girls and her cats. She enjoyed getting together with family and friends, making sure to take trips to England and Washington whenever possible. While living with Lisa in Folsom, Maggie became a great nana when granddaughter Kristina gave birth to daughter Evangeline. The four generations of girls spent time together celebrating milestones, laughing, and of course, eating sweets. Maggie will be greatly missed by the many people she touched with her love, humor, and friendship. Maggie is survived by daughter Lisa, son-in-law Anthony, granddaughter Kristina, grand son-in-law Benjamin, great granddaughter Evangeline, brother Keith, and sister-in-law Pam. A private gathering for close friends and family will be held this summer in remembrance of Maggie.
