Constance M. Hamilton, 91, of Great Barrington, passed away peacefully at home January 14, 2021. A long-time Great Barrington resident, Connie, as she was known to everyone, was born on Staten Island, New York to parents William F. Muller and Emma (DiSio) Muller. After graduating, from New Dorp H.S., Connie moved with her family to Livingston, in upstate New York.

Constance was predeceased by her husband, John Alden Hamilton and by her brother, William Muller. She leaves behind a daughter, Jeanne O’Connor ( Daniel) of Narragansett, RI; a son, Alden Hamilton ( Janet) of The Villages, FL; four grandchildren: Colleen (Dr. Ali Vaezy), Daniel, Kevin (Cheri) and Courtenay, and one great grandchild.

Over the years Connie was active in many local organizations including the Girl Scouts, the Boy Scouts, the Alford Garden Club, the Fairview Hospital Women’s Auxiliary, the Historic District Commission and the Great Barrington Historical Society.

In her active years, Connie loved to play golf, garden and swim in local pools and especially at Lake Mansfield. She particularly enjoyed visiting Rhode Island and its beautiful beaches. Until recently Connie could be spotted driving around town in her beloved white Mustang convertible.

Connie was especially proud that in 1958, illustrator Norman Rockwell chose her to pose for an advertisement he was doing for Red Rose Tea.

Burial was private. Due to current health concerns, a memorial service will be held at a later date. Family suggests that any donations be made to the Peoples’ Pantry, PO Box 1115, Great Barrington. Condolences may be made through birchesroyfuneralservices.com.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear of Connie’s passing. She was such a lovely person. She and the whole family will be in my prayers. Mary Kay Clark (Aleck Kay’s niece.)

  2. Dear Jeanne and Alden,
    It seems that every day I see another obituary of someone from the “old guard” and I’m always reminded of days gone by. When I moved back to the area in 2002, I often saw your mom at Lake Mansfield and we always had a pleasant conversation. It was pleasant for me to see someone of that generation, as my parents both passed a long time ago. I just wanted to let you know that I remember you all with fondness, including your mom, and give my condolences.
