Mrs. Rebecca E. Hawkins

Mrs. Rebecca E. Hawkins, 92, of Carrollton, GA died February 16, 2021.

She was born in New Boston, OH and was the daughter of the late Earl and Beatrice Griffin.

She was also preceded in death by her husband Millard Berry Hawkins and her beloved daughter Deborah Hewlett.

She was a devoted member of Glenloch Baptist Church in Franklin, Georgia and where she enjoyed sewing and making quilts with the Glenloch Baptist Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU). The church members were her second family and helped to make Georgia her home.

She worked as a nurse for more than 45 years before retiring, having worked in labor and delivery and with home health care. Her passion for caring for others has been passed down to her daughter, granddaughter, and great granddaughter, creating four generations of wonderful nurses.

She was also a member of the Abraham Baldwin Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

She greatly adored her family including her daughter and son-in-law, Patricia and Chuck Liston of Carrollton; her grandchildren, Susan and Rick Secord of Villa Rica; Rob and Sonnett Moulton of Tennessee; Julie and Jonathan Chapman of Utah; Laurie and Adam Rothwell of Virginia; Amanda Liston of Bremen; Chaz and Amber Liston of Griffin; Kallie and Martin Harner of Carrollton; and her great-grandchildren Brittany and Logan Moulton, Aidan and Hannah Rothwell, Abby and Cayden Chapman, and Luke and Lola Liston.

All will greatly miss her candor and spirit.

A memorial service will be held at Glenloch Baptist Church at 2:00 on Tuesday, February 23, 2021 officiated by two men she greatly respected, Neil Awbrey and Terry Harper.

The family will receive friends at the church 30 minutes prior to the service.

For those not comfortable attending in light of the pandemic, your prayers, thoughts, and memories are just as important and as appreciated.

In lieu of flowers, please make memorial contributions to Glenloch Baptist WMU 2807 Glenloch Rd. Franklin, GA 30217.
