Born in Pickens County, she was a daughter of the late William R. Whitlock and Mary Frances Summey Whitlock.

Mrs. Hamlin was a graduate of Pendleton High School, and a member of Liberty First Baptist Church. As a partner along side of her minister husband, together they built homes and churches to change lives and to build character in hundreds of young lives and to help many to do what they thought could not be done. She served on boards and organizations for youth and civic life of the community, the Womens Club of Atlanta. A traveler, she visited 48 states, England, Jamaica and Canada seeing the beauty of our great nation and it's sorrow and glory. She loved the children in many places in South Carolina, Georgia and Louisiana from the campfire by Lake Pontchartrain to the backyards of many churches in South Carolina and our missions in England. She was also an avid W.M.U. leader wherever she lived.
