Obituary of Dorothy Jean Hawkins

Dorothy Jean Hawkins (nee Armstrong), died peacefully at the Everett Chalmers Hospital in Fredericton NB on January 27th at the age of 95. Wife of the late William Maxwell Hawkins, she was born on June 8, 1926 in Pennfield NB. Dot will be lovingly remembered by her three daughters, Judy Morris (Jim) Kelowna BC, Susan Sansom Fredericton NB, and Joan Holmes (John) Boise ID; six grandchildren: Jimmy Morris (Debbie), Surrey BC, Elaine Morris (Mike), Vancouver BC, Nicole Dawson (Matt) Kanata ON, Megan St-Pierre (Karl) Richmond ON, Ryan Holmes, Salt Lake City UT, and Ashley Holmes, Boise ID. Also very dear to her heart were her six great-grandchildren: Kaitlyn & Jacob Morris, Will & Ruby Dawson, and Simon & Zoe St-Pierre. Dorothy is also survived by her many nieces & nephews. Dot & Bill spent most of their 67 years of marriage in Nackawic, NB, where she was a valued member of the Anglican Church in Prince William. She served others with such a willing heart. Dot had her special way of always making everyone feel welcome in her home, no matter if you were family, friend or neighbor. She always showed kindness and respect to all, with a genuine interest in the lives of others; she was a beautiful and caring person. Being active throughout her life, she especially enjoyed her years of curling, cross-country skiing, and lengthy daily walks. After moving to Fredericton, you could find her walking the halls of her apartment building, always with a smile and a kind word for everyone she met. Remembrances in Dot’s memory may be made to Hospice Fredericton or St Clements Anglican Church, Prince William.
