Hildred Sawyer
Hamilton, 90
GORHAM - Hildred "Hillie" S. Hamilton, 90, passed away Sept. 12, 2018, at home, surrounded by family. She was born in Rumford, Maine, on Feb. 17, 1928, the only child of Arthur J. and Doris (Cummings) Henry.
Hillie loved her family, friends, and cat, Bella. She was a talented musician and enjoyed square dancing, creating art and Jeopardy. She read the newspaper and her Bible and companion book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures daily. She greeted everyone with a smile and focused on the good in all in her loving manner.
She was a longtime resident of Falmouth, moving to Gorham House three years ago. She quickly made friends and became part of their family. She will be remembered by her dearest friends, Angie and Esther.
Hillie was predeceased by her parents and husband, Herbert (Deak) Hamilton. She is survived by her six children, Catherine Judkins and her husband, Norman of Casco, Arthur Sawyer and his wife, Debra, of Newalla, Okla., Joanne Sawyer of Goffstown, N.H., John Sawyer and his wife, Diane, of Goffstown, N.H., Scott Sawyer and his wife, Diane, of Eliot, and Mark Sawyer and his wife, Kelly, of Orland; 15 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren and three stepchildren and their families.
The family wishes to express their deepest thanks to the Gorham House staff for their support and allowing hospice services to occur in her apartment. The caregivers at VNA Home Health Hospice were exceptional. Every person helped Hillie and her family on this final journey. Special thanks to her nurses, Kim and Amanda for their ability to keep pain at bay; caregivers, Kristi and Robin who always made sure her lipstick was on; and the wonderful reassuring pastor, Jennifer, who offered us all comfort.
At her request, there will be no service or calling hours. A celebration of her life will take place at a future time.
