Meredith Susan Hamilton, 60, of Trinidad, Colorado, formerly of Lafayette, Colorado passed away on October 11, 2014. Meredith, known as Sue by family and close friends, was born in Denver Colorado to Joyce Ellis Hamilton and Robert Douglas Hamilton on April 29, 1954.
Sue worked in accounting all her life. She completed an Associate of Arts degree in history at Arapahoe Community College and a Bachelor’s degree in accounting at the University of Phoenix. She worked for Montgomery Wards, for the Boulder Valley School District as an accounting assistant, and at Trinidad Junior College as a payroll administrator. Her accounting work was primarily in payroll and benefits, an area in which she was passionate and skilled. Sue was a member of the Flatirons Community Church in Lafayette and served on their greeter committee.
She loved meeting new people and she enjoyed growing and tending herbs, cooking, traveling with her family, history, watching sports, and was an avid softball player in Denver for many years. Her eldest niece described her Aunt Sue as “a fierce athlete, soulful musician, storyteller, keeper of memories, traditions and connections, and devoted daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend”. She devoted her love and attention to her two nieces and three nephews as they were growing up and they each have treasured memories of her singing to them, playing softball, and keeping up with their lives.
