Obituary: Nancy B. Hamilton, 90, outstanding science educator
She was a woman of remarkable achievements. A member of an old, respected family, Dr. Hamilton had retired to Columbia after a distinguished career as a teacher of chemistry.
Nancy B. Hamilton, 90, 301 E. Guardian ST, Columbia, KY, died Sunday, April 22, 2007, at 12:50am, at the Jane Todd Crawford Hospital in Greensburg, KY.
Graveside services will be Wednesday, April 25, 2007, at 3:00pm at Columbia Cemetery with Rev. David Alexander officiating, with burial to follow.
Visitation will be after 1:00pm CT, Wednesday, April 25, at Grissom Funeral Home, 200 Campbellsville ST, Columbia, KY.
She was a daughter of the late Herman and Mary Myers Barnett.
She was preceded in death by a sister, Betty Moss, and a nephew, Mike LaFavers.
Survivors include the following:
She then became a student at Eastern Kentucky State Teachers College and received her Bachelor of Science degree from there in 1937.
She then began a distinguished teaching career, teaching science and chemistry at a number of Kentucky high schools.
She earned a Masters degree from the University of Kentucky in Science.
In 1965, she completed her education by receiving her Doctorate in Chemistry from Ohio State University. This achievement is all the more notable because she was only the third woman accepted into this program, at the time, at OSU.
After receiving her doctorate, she taught in the Jefferson County School System for over 30 years.
Lindsey Wilson College honor her at Homecoming 1998 with the Distinguished Alumna Award.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to St. Judes Hospital, Kosair Children's Hospital, or the Crusade for Children.
Grissom Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
