February 8, 1925 - January 28, 2021
On January 28, 2021, just days shy of her 96th birthday, our mother Marion Elizabeth Hamilton passed away. She was born to Eugene and Bessie Berard on February 8, 1925 in Pittsfield, and married our dad, Thomas Michael Hamilton, on October 15, 1955. Mom was a 1942 graduate of Pittsfield High School. She worked for General Electric as an executive secretary for 13 years and spent the next 18 years at home raising her seven children: Tom, Jr., Ellen, Dan, Katie, Matt, Anne and Jimmy. When she had enough of us, she finished her working career at Morgan Grampian in the Circulation Department for 10 years. She also leaves her stepsons, Roger and Richard Hamilton. The seven of us kids along with Roger and Richard delivered 19 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. Mom was predeceased by our dad in 1997, Thomas M. Hamilton. She was also predeceased by her parents, a sister Dorothy Farr, a brother Eugene Berard, and son-in-law, Michael Street. Our mother loved the City of Pittsfield, her Catholic faith, and politics. She was a familiar “Letters to the Editor” writer in the Berkshire Eagle, with this obituary being her final publication. Mom would sign her cards to all of us, “Love Mom, Love Gram, Keep the Faith”. Today-- and always--we will do this in her honor.
