Charmain Blake Jamison Hatch

December 13, 1921 — June 16, 2024

Bountiful, UT

Charmain Blake Jamison Hatch, age 102, was born December 13,1921 to Salina Kener Blake and Thomas William Blake in South Jordan, Utah. She died at home, in Bountiful, Utah, on June 16, 2024, with her family at her side, bidding farewell. Charmain’s mother passed away when she was 2 and a half years old, also leaving an older sister, Betty Lee. Her father Thomas allowed his daughters to visit with friends, John and Margaret Jamison, on their ‘Arrow Ranch’ outside Evanston, Wyoming. The girls loved it and eventually had their guardianship granted to the Jamison’s. They were officially adopted in1936. Margaret insisted on piano lessons which started Charmain’s love affair with music. Her love of singing began with performing a solo in a musical at Evanston High School. Charmain was crowned Cowboy Day’s queen in 1941, following high school graduation. She subsequently studied at Juilliard School of Music in New York City, but came home to marry Alvin W Hatch, Woods Cross, Utah, in the Salt Lake City Temple. She met Alvin when he negotiated a business deal with the Jamison Family on behalf of Hatch Bros. Company, Woods Cross, Utah.

Alvin and Charmain followed the rigorous and demanding ranching life. They moved with the Hatch Bros. herds between wintering in Skull Valley, Utah and summering in Wasatch, Utah, with other locations as needed. Years later they bought their own ranch in Raymond, Idaho where they lived and worked until retiring to Bountiful and Bear Lake, where the family built a beautiful summer home.

Except for family, music was everything to Charmain throughout her long life. She was a chorister in all church organizations – music director and choir director in several wards and Stake Music Director in Montpelier Stake, Idaho. She was a prolific composer and arranger, a soloist in the Utah Chorale at the U of U, a Bountiful Temple organist for 20 - plus years, and was especially proud to qualify a boy’s quartet for the final Quartet Festival held in the Salt Lake City Tabernacle. One of her greatest joys was teaching piano to both young and old. She served wherever and whenever and gave it her all.

She loved writing poetry and composed a yearly birthday poem from 2001 through 2010 for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, presenting each with a bound book of poetry.

She was predeceased by her natural and adoptive parents, her sister Betty Lee Myers, her husband, Alvin, who died in 2007, son-in-law Paco Guttierrez, and a grandson Justin Wade Hatch.  She is survived by her six children, James (Judy), Linda Irvine (David), Marilyn Gutierrez, Scott (Cindy), Thomas (Jan), Ira, 17 grandchildren, 50 great-grandchildren and 8 great-great grandchildren.
