Mary Emily Hawkins

 

Mary Emily Hawkins, 89, of Owensboro, passed away Friday, December 29, 2023, at her residence, while under the care of Hospice of Western Kentucky. She was born February 11, 1934, in Owensboro, to the late Arthur and Ethel Mae Howard. If you lived on the west end of Owensboro, you more than likely knew Mary, she was like a mom or a mamaw to anyone she encountered, and to know her was to love her. Family member or not, she would love you and help you with all her heart. Most of all, Mary loved her family with a passion and enjoyed spending time with all of them.

Along with her parents, she was also preceded in death by her husband, J.D. Hawkins; two sons, Steve Hawkins, and Richard Hawkins; a daughter, Monica Adkinsson; a great-grandchild, Baby Hayden; two brothers, Jim Howard and George Raymond Howard; and a sister, Ann Burns.

Mary is survived by her four children, Ada (Mike) Calloway, Gail Koger, Jeff Hawkins, and Mark (Craig Brown) Hawkins; 16 grandchildren; 32 great-grandchildren; 2 great-great-grandchildren; 3 sisters, Paulette Howard, Bernice Hackworth, and Edna Conner; and her four-legged pal and roommate, Piglet.

The funeral service for Mary will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, January 3, 2024, at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory. Visitation will be held on Wednesday from 10 a.m. until the time of the service.
