Janice Arlene Grim Hamilton, age 75, passed away peacefully at home on Jan. 30, 2017.

She was born Sept. 20, 1941 in Livingston, Montana, to Samuel and Elizabeth Eichler Grim. She married Donald Hamilton Jan. 2, 1960 in Weiser, Idaho; he passed away on Aug. 24, 1988.

Janice spent her early years in Montana and Oregon and graduated from Pine Valley High School in Halfway, Oregon, in 1959. Janice and Don moved to Wellington, Utah, in 1967. She was a member of Notre Dame de Lourdes Catholic Church.

Janice spent many years employed at Castleview Hospital, Notre Dame School, Mountain Bell, Pacific Telephone, and various other jobs until she retired in 2011. She had many hobbies but her favorites were square dancing, sewing, crocheting, knitting, crafting and word-search puzzles. She was a quiet volunteer and spent many years sewing for Notre Dame (habits for the Daughters of Charity, annual carnival, typewriter covers and curtains), helping at the Slovenian Home and countless hours being a Scout mom.

Janice is most noted for her compassionate and trustworthy ways as well as her strong work ethic. Her entire life was dedicated to her two sons.

She is survived by her sons, Donald Samuel (Jeri) Hamilton, Moab, and Daniel Lawrence Hamilton, Price; her only sister, Joanne C. Grim, Baker, Oregon; five loving grandchildren, Jayden, Emilyann, Ellianna, Kaci and Maddi.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Donald; and two infant sons.

Special thank you to Symbii Home Health and Hospice; special friends, Gail Raby, Linda Hackwell, Margaret Colosimo, Diane Randall, Tony Lessar and all of her dear family and friends.

A Funeral Mass will be held Saturday, Feb. 4, at 10 a.m. at Notre Dame de Lourdes Catholic Church in Price. A vigil service will take place Friday evening at 7 p.m. at the church. Family will be at the church Friday and Saturday one hour prior to the services. Committal will be at Price City Cemetery. Arrangements are entrusted to Mitchell Funeral Home of Price.
