Obituary: Juanita Edwards Hamilton

Juanita G. Edwards Hamilton passed away peacefully after a long battle with cancer and congestive heart failure on Wednesday, July 17, 2013, in Kingman.

Juanita was born on Sept. 13, 1926, in Anadarko, Okla., to Therodore and Gladys Mae Lum Edwards, who preceded her in death. She is survived by her loving family: brother, William Herbert Smedley and wife Maria of Kingman; brother, James Carl Smedley Clark and wife Anna of Sweetwater, Texas; sister, Alice Evajean Smedley Lyle of Olivehurst, Calif.; and several nieces and nephews and their families.

After the death of her beloved husband, Walter Sherman Hamilton, in 1998, she moved to Kingman in February 2001. She was a member of Cross of Christ Lutheran Church and loved her church family. A private family gathering will be held at a later date. Sutton Memorial Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
