Leatrice (Lea) Ann Lundin Hamilton went to be with the Lord Tuesday, September 12, 2017. She was 92.
Lea was born on March 4, 1925 in Seattle, Washington to Ed and Zell Lundin. Her brother, Wally was born two years later and completed the family. Lea took ballet and excelled at anything artistic, always loving to paint and draw. She graduated from West Seattle High School. Lea and her family including aunts, uncles and cousins, spent many wonderful summer days at their beach houses on Vashon Island. She met her loving husband, John Hamilton, during those fun days of sun, water skiing, and picnics. They were married in 1949. After living in West Seattle for a few years, Lea and John and their growing family, moved to John’s teenage home on Vashon Island. In 1965 their ninth child was born.
Lea greatly loved her family and her Lord, Jesus Christ. She enjoyed painting and gardening and during her later years, she made beautiful
bouquets for her church.
She is survived by her husband, John, her children Mike (Pinky), Julie Thuis (Tim), Steve (Linda), Suzy Ljubich (Tiger), Cyndi Korenek (Dale), John (Liz), Dan (Lynne), Greg, and Paul (Marcy); 16 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.
