Mrs. Hamby and her late husband, Walter, and son George moved to Perry in 1945 from Miami, when Mr. Hamby was transferred to the Tallahassee District of the U.S. Border Patrol. He later served as chief of police in Perry. Mrs. Hamby retired as supervisor of elections of Taylor County in 1996, after 20 years of service. Prior to that, she was a secretary and general office manager at Taylor County High School. She was known for her civic service to the community, where she often gave speeches to civic groups, and middle and high school students, about the significance of the "one" vote. A major focus of her tenure in office was increasing voter registration. She was very pleased when the County Commission gave her an old library van, which she drove all over the county registering people to vote. She was especially concerned with making sure that citizens in outlying areas like Steinhatchee have every opportunity to register and vote. During her tenure in office she was very active in the Florida Association of State Supervisors and served as its chaplain. She was one of the first women presidents of the Perry-Taylor County Chamber of Commerce and was very active in the Pine Tree Festival and the Florida Forest Festival.

She is a member of the Perry Woman's Club and the Order of the Eastern Star. She helped establish the Order of Rainbow for Girls and served as its first Mother Advisor. The First United Methodist Church was a focal point in her life. She taught Sunday School, served on numerous committees, served as chairman of the board, and is still a member of the Guild Circle. Mrs. Hamby is also a true daughter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, since her father was a Confederate officer who was injured at the Battle of Gettysburg. In addition to the above, she always found time to help raise money for the American Cancer Society, March of Dimes, Heart Fund, Easter Seals, United Way of the Big Bend and many other activities that benefited the community. In recognition of her service to the community, the Mu Omega Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi chose her as Woman of the Year in 1976. She is survived by her grandson, Walter P. Hamby (and wife Jessica); her great-granddaughter Kiersten Hamby; her step-great-granddaughter, Ashlyn Hutton of High Springs; a daughter-in-law, Glenda G.
