Estelle was wonderful friendly lady and really remarkable woman. I played golf with Estelle at the Mary Calder Golf Club and with Savannah Womens Golf Association. She was a steady golfer. She will be missed but we were fortunate to have her so long. Her family will be in my prayers.

One need not look far to see your love for her and offamily love. Our Deepest Sympathies, Prayer & Love, Dad(Pop) & Nancy (Meme)

Estelle was my dad's (Malcolm Calhoun) cousin. He grew up in Baldoc, SC, 8 miles outside of Allendale and Estelle spent a lot of time at the Calhoun home in Baldoc. She said that even though he was her cousin, she always had a crush on Malcolm, who was 6 1/2 years her senior. I meet Estelle several times over the years at my parents' home here in Savannah and she reached out about 12 years ago and my daughter and I took her to lunch. We were amazed then at her age and how fit she was, driving, playing golf and living on her own. We exchanged Christmas cards over the years and I saw her birthday announcement when she turned 103. I intended then to reach out to her and never did, an omission I greatly regret. She was a dear sweet lady who lived a long and productive life. Please accept my condolences and I have sent a donation in her memory to Make a Wish.

Mrs. Florence Estelle Hampton passed away on July 11, 2019 at the age of 103.  Estelle was born May 6, 1916 in Allendale, South Carolina to Alfred and Edna Hill.  After graduating from John de la Howe School in McCormick, South Carolina, she moved to Savannah, Georgia where she worked for the Department of the Navy as a draftsman to support the war effort during World War II.  During that time, she met her husband, Burt L. Hampton, and the two raised a daughter, Caroline Hampton Warnell.  After relocating several times to support Burt’s career, the two returned to Savannah where they spent their remaining days.  Estelle was an avid golfer who won the tournament championship at Mary Calder Golf course, and was a member of the Savannah Women’s Golf Association for 50 years.  Estelle had an open and kind heart and never met a stranger.  She was beloved by all who knew her and endeared herself to everyone she met.

She was preceded in death by her husband Burt, her daughter Caroline, grandson Harold Brooks Warnell III, and grandson Steven Bryan Warnell.

She is survived by her grandson, Ken Warnell, and his wife Regina, of Maryville, Tennessee; a great granddaughter, Savanna Caroline Warnell of Maryville, Tennessee; two great grandsons, Hunter Brooks Warnell and Steven Austin Warnell, both of Ellabell, Georgia; and son-in-law, Harold Brooks Warnell of Ellabell, Georgia. She is also survived by her “golf buddies,” most notably, Louise Johnson of Garden City, Georgia, and her dear friend and caretaker, Gertrude Mitchell of Savannah, Georgia.

A memorial visitation will be held Saturday, July 20, at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel.

In lieu of flowers the family asks to donate to the Make a Wish Foundation, 1775 The Exchange, SE, Atlanta, GA 30339, or georgia.wish.org.

Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel, is in charge of arrangements.
