1 Jan 2001 Obit for Eva Glenelle (Dinty) Hamner Gordon online
Posted by: Susan Sasek (ID *****4134) Date: November 28, 2005 at 10:23:57

I've added transcriptions & images of the Obituary & a newspaper article from The Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper [VA] for Eva Glenelle (Dinty) Hamner Gordon.

'Dinty' is my 2nd cousin, once removed. She was a dance instructor and owner of Dinty's School of Dance for many, many years. My two oldest daughters took dance lessons from her for several years. She was a caring & wonderful person. She is the daughter of Patrick Henry Hamner & Aleen East. Both of her brothers were professional baseball players: Wesley Garvin Hamner (Garvin) was a member of the 1945 Philadelphia Phillies and Granville Wilbur Hamner (Granny) was a member of the Philadelphia Phillies from 1944 to 1959; and the Kansas City Athletics in 1962.

This line of Hamner's is supposedly related to Earl Hamner, creator of "The Walton's" television series (but I haven't done any research on that).

Her obituary & The Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper article is on the following page of my web site:
