Mazie Jeanette Hardy-Hamilton, born on Easter Sunday, April 9, 1939, in Grandview, Texas, to I. W. and Juanita Hardy, peacefully passed away on February 8, 2024, surrounded by her loving family. Known affectionately as Jeanette, she grew up in a Christian home, embracing her faith from a young age and becoming baptized and a devoted member of Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church in 1965. She later joined the choir, and when her children were old enough to attend Sunday school, she made sure that they were in church all the way through their adulthood.
Jeanette attended and graduated from Jeanette Sanford high school in Itasca, Texas 1956. In 1957, she attended Texas college in Tyler Texas.
Jeanette's life was a testament to her unwavering love, strength, and grace. She met the love of her life and the one and only man from Cleburne, Texas - William M. Hamilton Senior, in 1957, and together they built a life centered around family and faith. Their marriage of 51 years was a beacon of love and commitment, and they raised four children together, instilling in them the values of compassion, kindness, and resilience.
Jeanette found joy in the simple pleasures of life, indulging in her favorite hobbies of traveling, shopping, and cooking. Her love for music and film knew no bounds, with Aretha Franklin and Mahalia Jackson providing the soundtrack to her life, and movies like "Imitation of Life" and "The Temptations" holding a special place in her heart. She enjoyed spending time with her family during holidays, watching her favorite TV shows, and sharing laughter and stories with those she held dear.
Jeanette's passing leaves a void in the hearts of her loved ones, but her memory will be cherished forever. She is survived by her daughters, Anethynia R. Hamilton and Terry L. Hamilton, both of Fort Worth, Texas; her grandchildren, Portia Latrell Hamilton, Aariel Hamilton, Aimee Turner and her husband, Douglas, Ashley Clark, and Amber Clark; her great-grandchildren, Niedra, Brailyn, Kaleb, Isaiah, Paityn, and Sevyn; her brother, Isaac Hardy, and his wife, Carita, of Bastrop, Texas; as well as a host of other relatives and friends.
Jeanette was preceded in death by her parents, I. W. and Juanita Hardy; her husband, William M. Hamilton Senior; her daughter, Portia Rene Hamilton; and her only son, William M. Hamilton Junior. She now rests in the arms of her heavenly Father, reunited with her loved ones who have gone before her.
Our mother was our queen, a beacon of love and strength who selflessly devoted herself to her family. She was the epitome of grace, kindness, and unconditional love, always putting the needs of others before her own. Jeanette was the best mother and grandmother that there ever was, her love and wisdom guiding us through life's joys and challenges.
To our most beautiful mother and grandmother, we thank you for being the greatest in the world. Your legacy of love and kindness will live on in our hearts forever. Though we will miss you dearly, we take comfort in knowing that you are at peace, reunited with your beloved husband and children. Until we meet again, your beautiful smile will be our guiding light, and your love will be our eternal comfort. We love you more than words can express, and you will be deeply missed.
A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, February 19, 2024, at Azle & Lake Worth Funeral Home beginning at 2:00 PM.
