Obituary for MARY V. HAWKINS

Mary Viola Hawkins, was the fourth child of fifteen children, born to the late John Albert

She attended Calvert County public schools and graduated in 1940 from W.S. Brooks

Mary married the late Overton Wilson Hawkins on January 14, 1944. This union was
blessed with eight children.

Mary was a devoted member of Mount Olive United Methodist Church. She served in
many church leadership roles including the Chairperson of the Worship Committee and

helped raise many children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. During the holidays,
Mary loved to cook large meals for her family and bake delicious cakes, cookies, and
brownies for dessert; her brownies became everyone's favorite.
