In loving memory of Shenise Michelle Hamilton, who departed this world on December 28, 2023 leaving behind cherished memories and a legacy of love.
Shenise was born on April 22, 1968 to Harold and Beverly Hamilton, Jr. in Springfield. After graduating from Yellow Springs High School, she secured a local position at Antioch Publishing prior to starting a career in the radio broadcasting industry at Clear Channel Communications of Dayton. Later she would relocate to Cincinnati to accept a promotion with Radio One’s The Wiz as the traffic manager prioritizing commercial advertisement schedules. Shenise was eager to make a difference in the world and grew passionate about helping others. She decided to embark on a new career within the healthcare industry where she worked as a phlebotomist for the past 11 years.
Shenise was an avid football fan cheering on her favorite teams, the University of Michigan and the Dallas Cowboys. She also enjoyed watching movies, baking, and spending precious quality time with her family, friends, and grandpup.
Shenise is survived her daughter Aja Welch; mother Beverly Hamilton; siblings, Shawn Drafton, Robin Suber, Lisa Hamilton, Adriane Hamilton, and Aaron Hamilton; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her father Harold Hamilton, Jr.
