Joanne Elizabeth Hamlin

November 5, 1953 - September 25, 2018
Joanne Elizabeth Hamlin


Joanne Elizabeth Hamlin was born in London, Ontario Canada and passed away on the 25th of September in Wilmington, N.C at the age of 64.

Joanne is survived by her daughters, Lindsey (Chad) and Courtney (Jeremy), her five grandchildren (Connor, Caroline, Hudson, Holden and Paxton), her loving partner and best friend Jim, her twin sister Cathy (Craig) and her brother Steven (Janet), and her mother Isabel.

Joanne chose to be a nurse as a profession, a role that required her to give her utmost, where she worked in years past to care for residents during her tenure at Woodbury Wellness Center and at Liberty Commons Nursing Home. Joanne was known by the residents as a woman who would take care of them to the best of her ability, while smiling and telling a quick joke to ease their pain. Joanne received the Certificate of Appreciation Award from Governor Pat McCrory for her outstanding and dedicated work with nursing home residents in October, 2014 – a true testament to her caring nature.

Joanne was loved dearly by her family and friends, and her passing leaves a large hole in the lives of those who loved her.
Joanne’s passion for animals was well-known … if you feel so drawn, the Pender County Animal Shelter in Hampstead, NC would appreciate donations of any kind in Joanne’s memory.

A memorial service will be at 2:00pm Saturday, September 29, 2018 at Wilmington Funeral Chapel.

    To the family of Joanne Hamlin, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear loved; please accept my condolences. May you find comfort by drawing close to God in prayer because, as the Bible promises, “he will sustain you” during this difficult time. - Psalm 55:22

    I am so sorry about your recent loss. The Bible is a good source of encouragement during difficult times like this. The Bible promises us at Revelation 21: 3, 4 that “death will be no more.” This is very reassuring to us when we lose our loved ones. You can have confidence that you will see your dead loved ones again because John 5:28, 29, says: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming which all in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.” May these scriptures comfort you all!

    Lindsay and Courtney you two were the light of your mom’s life. Your mom was so proud of both of you and adored your chosen mates and each and every grandchild. The love she also had for her fur babies. My thoughts and prayers are with y’all during this very difficult time. My parents your Uncle Don and Aunt Doreen wanted me to send their condolences also. My heart is heavy and I will miss my many conversations with your mom - my cousin Joanne. Til we meet again - Kiss on the Nose!!!

    Girls, so sorry for your loss. I worked with your mom. We had many good times working at the Woodbury. I could always count on her when I needed help. I remember one time she came to my house to help me have a yard sale. She arrived about 6 am and said first things first, let's make a pot of coffee. She was quick witted and was always smiling and laughing. She will be greatly missed.
