Obituary of Dorothy Maxine Hamilton

It is with deep sadness but with undeniable love, the family of Dorothea Maxine Hamilton (Lane) announces her passing at the Bennett Health Care Centre in Georgetown on December 11, 2021, at the age of eighty-seven. Dorothy (Dot) was the loving wife and soulmate of Jack Hamilton for 70 years; dearest mother to Rob (Brenda), Nancy, Donna (Bob), cherished grandma to Blake (Taylor), Brock (Andra), Lindsay (Mike), Adam (Jenny), Mitchell (Jennifer) and proud great grandma to Greyson, Reign and Kennedy. Dorothy was born in Dundalk, Ontario on February 12, 1934. She was the youngest child of Robert and Nellie (Ferguson) Lane. She leaves behind her sister Marjory McDonough of Acton and is predeceased by her brother Gordon Lane and sister Mary Knight. Dorothy was the biggest cheerleader for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Whether she was sitting in the stands at a sporting event or supporting us on our own life journeys, she was always there for her family. Mom's commitment and love for Dad has been an inspiration to us all. Building their life together in Georgetown and Limehouse, moving to South Carolina and returning to Georgetown to reunite with family and friends are all precious memories we cherish. Dorothy valued her time at The Club at North Halton, golfing, curling, and enjoying many friendships she shared with Jack. Time to rest Mom; your work is done…your legacy lives on through your children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. We will miss you. We love you and will carry all the beautiful memories in our hearts forever. A special thank you to the staff at the Bennett Health Care Centre for their excellent and compassionate care of Mom. Family and friends will be received at Jones Funeral Home, 11582 Trafalgar Road, Georgetown (905) 877-3631 on Thursday December 16th from 5-8 p.m. A private celebration of Dorothy's life will be held in the chapel. Cremation has taken place. In accordance with the family's wishes and Ontario Covid 19 protocols, everyone attending the visitation and service will be required to show proof of vaccination. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Bennett Health Care Centre are appreciated.
