Vanette Hamilton 61, left this earth July 11, 2020. She was born in Jacksonville, Florida to Frank & Alice Thompson. Vanette graduated from Ed White High School. In 1976, she married Ronald Hamilton and they were together for 43 years. They were blessed with two beautiful children, Jason, 41 (Rachel) & Kimberly, 35 (Jeff). Vanette is survived by her sister, Jeanie and brother, Frank and many cousins, nephews & nieces.
Vanette worked for Prudential for 23 years and went on to work at Aetna for 18 years.
‘Netters’, as she was frequently called, was known for her ability to light up a room with genuine charisma and her beautiful smile. She will be remembered for being a beacon of light, a true joy and shining example of Jesus. She cherished time with her family and loved the quality time spent together. Her hobbies included fishing, photography, cake decorating & singing in the church choir. Between being a Sunday school teacher for over 35 years, being a counselor at youth camp and her love for all-night southern gospel sings, being at church with her family was where she loved to be.
Her lifelong motto quite quickly became, “Finish Well”

So sad that I won’t see that sweet face or hear her sweet voice.
-Carol Hamilton (Sister-In-Law)
I love you, Netters. I have no words to describe how this feels. Deep “in my soul” sadness would be the closest that I could come. I will miss you beyond the stars. I wish you were still here with us, although I know nothing in Heaven or Earth would bring you back. You are finally in the presence of your Savior! I can only imagine you standing at the feet of JESUS with Mama T and Bro. Frank at your side… What a glorious reunion!! Until we meet again, my sweet and precious friend â¤ï¸.
-Angie Green (Friend)
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time of great sorrow.
