She and her husband Robert established Hamilton House Interiors which was located in the historic Pace home in Corsicana. She and Robert shared their love of designing and acquiring furnishings from Europe and the States to decorate special homes in Texas and beyond.
Lelia's love of beauty was evident in everything she did in life. She delighted in entertaining in their home and at her ancestral farmhouse in East Texas. Her gourmet cooking and gardening were also her avocations.
Her biggest joy was her family and her many friends that she considered to be her earthly treasures. Her life was truly lived as a tribute to the Presbyterian Catechism, to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.
