Pearle Knight Hamilton was born December 22, 1924 in Climax, Georgia.  She was the child of Marvin and Lillian Knight.  In May of 1943 she married the love of her life, Lee Monroe Hamilton.  She and Lee led a wonderful life in the U.S. Navy.  Pearle was a perfect Navy wife.  She was ready and able to entertain anyone at a moment’s notice.  They traveled the world where, this true Southern Belle, met and became friends with all sorts of dignitaries and royalty.  Lieutenant Commander Hamilton preceded his dear wife in death after they had retired to Climax, Georgia.  Pearle Hamilton loved Climax, she held dear her many precious family members and friends, but her heart, as she so often called him, was her son Kenny.  Pearle Hamilton will be sorely missed by the family and friends she loved so very much.
