Cynthia Hawkins

Died: Thursday, September 02, 2004
Cynthia Hawkins died on Thursday, Sept. 2, 2004.

She was always very active and remained busy with her friends and family throughout this year. Her children, in-laws and grandchildren are spread throughout the country and enjoyed spending time with her in recent months. She was very active in her church and always found time for family, friends, and especially with her Lord. Her beliefs and strength have always been a source of inspiration to her loved ones.

She lived with her family in Grosse Pointe for 30 years, where she worked for 20 years in the school system. Women’s education was an important belief. She belonged to a philanthropic group that sponsors scholarships for women for 50 years. After Victor, her beloved husband of over 40 years, passed away in September 1988, Mrs. Hawkins embarked on a new path.

After retiring, she moved to Gresham, Ore., to be closer to her mother, brother and community of faith.

In her customary way, Mrs. Hawkins quickly made new friends and became involved in the day-to-day activities of the Dawn Bible Students. Of course, she always kept in touch with her lifelong friends and traveled all over the world.

She is survived by her daughters, Sarah Patricia Miron, Victoria da Roza, and Christina Ward; her grandchildren, Carolyn Dawson, Sarah Hawkins, Kelly Ward and Megan Ward; and her great-grandchild, Andrew Dawson.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, Sept. 18, at Ford Funeral Home, and Mrs. Hawkins’ ashes will be placed in Forrest Lawn in Birmingham.

Memorial contributions may be made to the hospice of one’s choice in the Michigan area.
