Carleen Hamilton


You are a creator:

 A creator of love,

 A creator of beauty,

A creator of happiness

A creator of kindness........

~ Carleen Hamilton


Carleen was a fountain of beauty ~ in her poetry to her late husband George, in her artful expression through modern dance, in the dresses she designed and sewed.  She shared her passion for poetry and music with her students and her community, and encouraged others to express themselves freely.

Carleen's love for her husband and her family will live on in the writings she leaves behind, and she will be dearly missed by those who had the good fortune of knowing her.
