Eva Glenelle Gordon (Dinty), 79, of Richmond, has left this life to dance with the angels. She is survived by three sons, Earl Huband, Lee Huband and Bobby Huband; one brother, Garvin Hamner; three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren; and many, many friends through Dinty's School of Dance. A memorial service will be held 7 p.m. Thursday at the Bliley Funeral Home's Chippenham Chapel, 6900 Hull St. Rd. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the American Diabetes Association in memory of Dinty's cousin and lifelong companion, Audrey Martin.

[SSS Note: 'Dinty'
Hamner is my 2nd cousin, once removed. My two eldest daughters
took dance lessons from her for several years & she was a wonderful
person, just as the newspaper article above states. She is the
daughter of Patrick Henry Hamner & Aleen East. Both of her
brothers were professional baseball players: Wesley Garvin Hamner
(Garvin) was a member of the 1945 Philadelphia Phillies and Granville
Wilbur Hamner (Granny) was a member of the Philadelphia Phillies from 1944 to 1959; and the Kansas City Athletics in 1962. This line of Hamner's is supposedly related to Earl Hamner, creator of "The Walton's" television series (but I haven't done any research on that).]
