Obituary from the Craig Daily Press:
Darlene Hamilton
Darlene D. Hamilton, 44, of Callaway, Neb., and formerly of Craig and Hamilton, died Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2008, at her home near Callaway after a 1 1/2-year battle with cancer.
Darlene was born Jan. 1, 1964, in Ogallala, Neb., to Arthur and Theresia (Gross) Durkop.
Darlene grew up in Craig, where she graduated from Moffat County High School in 1982.
She then went to Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, graduating in 1984.
Following that, she attended Mesa State College, graduating in 1987.
On May 6, 1989, she married Ray Hamilton. They started their life together in Wyoming, later moving to Nebraska. Three children were born to this union.
While living in Colorado, Darlene was a range technician for the White River National Forest Service near Meeker. She also worked various jobs before she became a housewife. The couple lived in many different places before settling in Callaway in 2008.
She enjoyed horseback riding and hunting, especially deer and elk. Darlene also liked dancing and gardening, especially her flower beds. But her pride and joy
were her children; she loved spending time with her family.
She was a member of the Callaway Community Church.
Darlene is survived by her husband, Ray Hamilton, of Callaway; two daughters, Kimberly Hamilton and Julia Hamilton, both of Callaway; one son, Stetson Hamilton, of Callaway; her father, Arthur Durkop, of Craig; one brother, Henry and wife, Mindi Durkop, of Craig; four sisters, Linda and husband Terry Behrman, Rita and husband Jay Harris and Nancy and husband James Bohrer, all of Craig, and Marie and husband Joe Tamburello, of Aurora; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Theresia; and brother, Larry Durkop; her grandparents; and niece, Adrian Durkop.
Visitation will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday at Timm-Reynolds-Love Funeral Home in Callaway. The casket will be closed. A funeral will be held at 10:30 a.m. Monday at Callaway Community Church in Callaway, with Pastor Dean Haidle officiating. Burial will be at Rose Hill Cemetery in Callaway.
Memorials may be made to the family for later designation.
