With gratitude for a lifetime of memories, the family of Mabel Hawkins announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother at the age of 101 years.
Mabel is survived by two sons Jim (Sheila) and Doug (Doreen), three grandchildren, Amy, Fraser (Meaghan), and Ali (JohnPaul) and three great-grandchildren, Cole, Lincoln, and Miuccia. She was predeceased by her husband Claude.
Mabel had a zest for life. She enjoyed traveling and wood carving. She was an avid gardener with a particular love of nurturing a wide variety of roses. Thank you to everyone at Waterford of Summerlea where Mabel resided for the past eight years. We are especially grateful for her 100th birthday celebration held there. Mabel was happy to see so many old friends and relatives. Thank you to the Mel Miller hospice staff for their compassion and care in her final days.
