Patricia Ann Hamilton, 88, of Owensboro, passed away December 2, 2022, surrounded by her family, while under the care of Hospice of Western Kentucky. She was born October 12, 1934, in Daviess County, to the late Edwin and Irene Reising Simon. Patricia was a 1952 graduate of Owensboro Catholic High School, where later in life she served in the cafeteria for 23 years before retiring. She was a longtime member of Our Lady of Lourdes. Patricia enjoyed cake decorating classes and spoiling her family members with beautifully decorated cakes on their birthdays. She took pride in her appearance and loved to dress up. Patricia was known to have a dry sense of humor, often joking around although sometimes it was hard to tell. Above everything, she loved being in the company of her family, especially her grandchildren.
Patricia was preceded in death by her husband of nearly 68 years, David Patrick Hamilton; her son, Stephen W. Hamilton; and her siblings, Victor Simon, Lucille Goetz, Mary Skaggs, Irma McFarland, Clarence Simon, Paul Simon, and Joe Bill Simon.
She is survived by her children, Karen Durbin (David), Greg Hamilton (Connie), Scott Hamilton (Shellia), and Beth Case (Duane), all of Owensboro; her grandchildren, Jamie Jeffries (Toby), Brad Hamilton (Jennifer), Bryan Hamilton (Melissa), Michelle Hamilton, Jennifer Reader (Nicholas), Brooke Daugherty, Jordan Hamilton (Cynthia), and Mary Phoenix Dunn (Cory); 13 great-grandchildren; and 2 great great-grandchildren.
The funeral Mass will be 12pm Monday at Our Lady of Lourdes. Burial will be in Mater Dolorosa Cemetery. Visitation will be from 9am until 11:30am Monday at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory.
