Sarah Ann Marie Hamilton

July 8, 1980 ~ December 24, 2021 (age 41)


Once upon a time, only 41 years ago, on July 8, 1980, a hazel eyed, raven-haired little beauty entered our world.  Sarah Ann Marie Hamilton, was lively, spirited and full of curiosity.  As time moved forward, her full of life energy and vivacious personality found her with many friends.  Even at a young age, Sarah was persistent and determined.  She maneuvered a broken leg around a few days before it was realized by her parents.  After a visit to the doctor, it was soon discovered that a cast was needed.

As a youngster, Sarah’s summers were dedicated to softball at the Wabash Valley Girls softball league.  Then as a teen, she became a much preferred babysitter for her young cousins because she made things so much fun and entertaining.  She graduated from Booker T. Washington High School with high honors.

Surviving parents are Wayne E. Hamilton, Bonnie A. (Jack) Higgins and siblings, Jason Jones, Stephanie Harmon (Natalie), Lucas Hamilton (Jennifer), several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Sarah was preceded in death by each of her beloved grandparents, and her precious daughter, “Mini Mighty Jbird” Justice Simone – after donating her own bone marrow on several occasions. Despite hardships, disappointments, and setbacks, Sarah’s tenacity, and strength of spirit helped her through the darkest trial of her life.  Nevertheless, during Justice’s hospitalization and treatment she kept meticulous records and was keenly aware of all medical procedures and medicines administered, never leaving her daughter’s bedside. 

Sarah was a loving mother and she worked hard and diligently to support herself and her children.  She was unstoppable and a force to be reckoned with if she felt that her children were threatened or harmed.  She was intimidated by no one, no matter what their social standing or profession.  Her outspoken candor was put into practice many times in defense of their wellbeing.  Her surviving children are, Tayler (Austin) Lyttle, Leilani Spencer, and Lyric Potter. 

Family, friends, and coworkers were all impacted by Sarah’s passion and zeal for life.  She was also an avid Colts fan and was unwavering in her loyalty to those she loved, be it her family, friends, or team.  Whether trying to keep her composure in a serious setting with a beloved aunt or being engaged in lengthy conversation on her phone with a loved one, Sarah was “all in.”  She laughed often, she spoke fearlessly, and she loved deeply.  Sarah can now enjoy the rest she so desperately needed as she sleeps in the arms of the Everlasting Savior.

Our sorrow is great, yet we will celebrate her life on Monday, January 3, 2022, in Greiner Funeral Home, 2005 N. 13th Street, Terre Haute, Indiana, 47804. Visitation will be from 11-1 pm, with a service beginning at 1 pm with Pastor Ryan Thomas officiating.
