TEMPLETON - Virginia G. Hamilton, 97, of South Yarmouth, formerly of Baldwinville and of Shrewsbury, MA, died peacefully Saturday, January 19, 2019 in Windsor Rehabilitation and Nursing Home, South Yarmouth.
She was born July 27, 1921 in Black Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and as the daughter of a Methodist Minister, resided in several east Tennessee towns, ultimately living several years in Knoxville. After graduating from Karns High School, she took business courses and worked briefly as a bookkeeper. In World War Two, she was a Red Cross volunteer worker, meeting troop trains in Knoxville.
After marriage, she lived in New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, South Carolina, New Hampshire and Alabama, before returning to Massachusetts.
Her interests included baking, cake decorating, gardening, sewing and flower arranging. Her faith was very important and she used her love of butterflies to explain her new birth in Christ. She felt blessed having lived in many places and always found friends and good experiences wherever she lived.
