Easter Mae Hamilton was born April 8, 1927, to the late Para Lee and Alonzo (Luke) Covin in Albany, GA. She transitioned to her Heavenly home on Saturday August 12, 2023.

Easter Mae was a spiritual woman who accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior. She was best known as “Mother Hamilton” and a faithful member of Asbury Park Deliverance Center under the late Apostle Sneed. Later in life she dedicated her service to Pillars of Harvest Ministries in Long Branch under Elder Antonious Thigpen.

She was an inspiration to all who knew her and was loved and admired by many. The impact of Easter’s life will be felt for years to come. If Easter was not sharing her love of God, you could catch her every morning on the prayer line giving her testimony of the goodness of God. One of the greatest highlights of Easter life, when she had the opportunity to visit the Holy Land of Jerusalem in 2018.

Easter’s legacy will live on forever through the many stories she shared and the memories of those who had the opportunity to know her. She will be remembered as a loving mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, cousin, and friend.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband Jimmy Lee Hamilton of Albany GA; Son James Hamilton of NJ; Sisters: Martha Dukes, Parie (Pat) Penn, Mary Covin from NJ; Brothers: Larry Covin of GA; Isaac Covin of FL, Charles Covin of NC, Willie Covin, Benny Covin, Lonzy (Lonnie) Covin of NJ.

Loving and cherished memories of Easter will forever remain in the hearts of her survived Daughters: Willie Mae Mitchell of NJ, Florine (Leroy) Washington of GA, and Robin Haymon of NJ; Sister: Eloise McRoy of FL; Grandchildren: Regina (David) Scott of NJ, Michelle (John) Williams of GA, Lorraine (Brian) Pierce of GA, Sheena (Anthony) Evans of GA, Bishara (Ashley) Johnson of GA, Khalif (Shaneen) Johnson of NJ, Michael (Bridget) Haymon of NJ, Chanel Haymon RI; 15 Great-grandchildren; 4 Great-great grandchildren; a host of nieces and nephews as well as many friends.

    Flo, my deepest condolences to you & your family for your loss. My thoughts & prayers are with you during this difficult time 🙏 🙏🙏

  2. Dr. Robin Eubanks says:

    Mother Hamilton was very special to us on our daily prayer line each morning for many years. She often interceded for many on the line and shared words of encouragement. We actually shared some special moments on a trip to the Holy Land several years ago which was a dream of hers fulfilled. She will be truly missed. My prayers and condolences go out to the family.

  3. Debbie Elmore-Harrell says:

    May God be with the family of Ms. Easter in their time of sorrow. I had the privilege of being neighbors and growing up with her son and daughters in Long Branch, NJ. I am most familiar with her deceased son, James and her daughters Florine and Robin who were closer in age with me and my younger brother, Kevin. She was a kind and beautiful lady who I will always remember as I reminisce on my fondest childhood memories. Please know that the Elmores loved your mom and will forever remember the “Grant Court Mothers” whose loving guidance helped to shape our futures.
