Blessed are those that have known love and given love. Linda Kathryn (Dombroski) Hamilton finished her journey through life filled with love on July 12, 2019.
“Love always protects, trusts, hopes and perseveres. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
She taught us all the truth of love and showed that to every soul whose life she touched. Her soul is now free and rejoicing at the end of a long journey through the trial of breast cancer.
Linda was born and raised in Springfield, Illinois, on Aug. 6, 1948, and lived in Normal, Illinois, while attending Illinois State where she met Steve Hamilton, her husband of 50 years. Linda was a librarian assistant at Apollo Elementary in Aledo from 1971 to 1974. She then left Illinois in the spirit of adventure and moved to Sitka, Alaska, where she raised her family and worked for the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation managing elderly and low-income housing. After leaving Sitka she lived with her husband in Kalispell where she lived out the rest of her days.
She is survived by her husband, Steve; two sons, Nathan and Ethan Hamilton; her younger sister, Diane Suderman; and her twin brother, Michael (Nancy) Dombroski; along with her nephews, nieces and two great-nieces.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Edward and Bernice (Shevokas) Dombroski.
Family and friends are invited to a graveside service to be held at 11 a.m. on July 19 at the Viola Cemetery, Viola, Illinois. A time of fellowship and luncheon will immediately follow at Speer Funeral Home, 2502 SE 3rd St., Aledo, Illinois.
