Consulla Hubbard Hamilton of 706 Lakeshore Drive, Bennettsville, SC passed away after a very brief illness on Tuesday, July 6, 2021. She was a daughter of the late Leroy Keith & Bessie McRae Hubbard. As a long-standing member of Marlboro County, she will always be remembered for her vibrant smile, enthusiastic spirit, infectious love of life, and love for her family and friends. Funeral Services will be held at First United Methodist Church, 311 East Main Street, Bennettsville, SC, 29512 on Friday, July 9, 2021 at 2:00pm. Family visitation will be held immediately prior to the funeral in the Family Life Center at the church. A private burial will take place after the funeral service.
Mrs. Hamilton was the consummate homemaker and entertainer always ready to welcome a crowd – the more, the merrier. Her home was decorated to perfection – especially for the Christmas holidays where she delighted in watching the eyes of little ones light up as they explored “winter wonderland”. She was an excellent cook, floral gardener, and decorator. Her hobbies included fishing at Cherry Grove Beach (the most beautiful place on earth), exercising, playing bridge, bird watching and watching sporting events on TV. Mrs. Hamilton also enjoyed traveling and exploring the world with her husband. They often included their grandchildren and others in their many adventures.
Mrs. Hamilton was an active member of First United Methodist Church in Bennettsville where she served as a Trustee, a member of the Altar Guild, Administrative Committee and Chairman of the Parsonage Committee. She thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the Church Hospitality Committee and could be found on most Wednesday evenings in the family life center kitchen preparing delicious meals for all who could attend.
Out of her love of flowers, she also served as President of the Garden Gate Garden Club. She worked tirelessly to schedule and offer a wide variety of entertaining programs, entice and foster new members and create a Garden Gate yearbook. She also spear-headed many community beautification projects such as “Memory Lane”.
Mrs. Hamilton devoted time to her civic duties by serving on the Marlboro County Transportation Development Committee and the Bennettsville Downtown Development Association.
Left to cherish the memory of Consulla Hubbard Hamilton are her husband of 67 years, O’Neal Hamilton, son Gordon Hamilton (Beverly), daughter Kimberly Hamilton Bundy (Billy), grandsons Neal Hamilton (Jen) and Will Bundy, granddaughter Katie Bundy (fiancé Robert Hartman) and great-grandson, States Hamilton as well as numerous friends across the state. Mrs. Hamilton was predeceased by her brother, John Keith Hubbard.
