Reba Estell Chenoweth Hamilton
Birth: Nov. 21, 1905
Healing Springs
Benton County
Arkansas, USA
Death: May 2, 2002
Benton County
Arkansas, USA

Reba was the beautiful daughter, and first born of seven children to Jeff William Chenoweth and Melvia Willie Hensley Chenoweth in Healing Springs.

Reba had five Sisters and One Brother ~ Edgar Mike, Fern, Grace Johnie (Leach), Lillian Lucille (Holland), Eunice Margaret (Bolin) and Clide Maxine (Owens Martin).

Reba Estell was the Granddaughter of John King Chenoweth and Margaret Jane St. John Chenoweth and Baxter Hensley and Mary Elizabeth Tate Hensley.

Reba was a life time resident of Cave Springs area, was a wonderful homemaker and a member of Cave Springs Church of Christ in Cave Springs, Arkansas. She and her husband Ray William Hamilton were married April ~ 1926, they were married 47 years. Ray William Hamilton passed away March 21, 1973 at the age of 69. They had one son Lee Hamilton, who passed away September 16, 2000 at the age of 72.

Reba was such a sweet and loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and a very sweet and special aunt! She had a talent for baking beautiful cakes and free hand painting, I have several old snuff glasses of pawpaw and granny's, that she painted, yucca and cactus on. Aunt Reba was always so good to me, I remember the big bowls of sherbet ice cream and oatmeal cookies she would fix for me, it tasted so good. Dinner on Christmas day was always at uncle Ray and aunt Reba's house, what a wonderful cook she was!! Aunt Reba's house was always spotless, nothing was ever out of place. She loved pretty hats, always wore a hat to church every sunday, I remember all the pretty hat boxes she kept sitting on the shelf in her closet, her closets always smelled so fresh and clean. Aunt Reba and Uncle Ray loved their grandchildren so very much, during the summers, Linda, Lee Ann and Mary Beth stayed with Reba and Ray nearly all the time, we lived the next house up the road, so I would go down everyday and play with the kids, aunt Reba told granny how much she enjoyed me coming down to play with the kids, I was a few years older and it was like helping her babysit. I do want to mention this in remembrance of our precious aunt Reba, back January 24, 1977, aunt Reba wrote Mommy (her Sister Clide) a 22 page letter of how she met uncle Ray and all the trials they went through before getting married. It's like a small paperback novel, a wonderful love story. I so often get it out and reread it, it takes me back to her life, going to Rocky Comfort school, she was 14 years old when she saw Ray for the first time, it was love at first sight, the year was 1920........

"The Memories we collect are like Keepsakes, Always to be Treasured".

Our Precious Aunt Reba went to live in Heaven at the age of 96.
