Marjorie Irene Hawkins

On February 17, 2023, at 5:55 PM, Marjorie Irene Hawkins lost

her battle with neuroendocrine cancer and

rejoined her heavenly family and earned her wings.

Marjorie was born March 24, 1948, in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania to George Cole and Jareene Novak.

They moved to Arizona in 1955, where she attended Mesa High School.

Marjorie had an extremely hard childhood growing up and was determined to change that and she did just that, just like a Phoenix rising from the ashes and created a wonderful life for her and her family.

In 1971, she took her 1969 Mach I Mustang to the Union 76 on Arizona Ave and Williams Field Road and there she met her true love, George Hawkins.

They were married on March 11, 1972, at the

JP in Mesa, Arizona.

For their first anniversary she wanted to go “somewhere she would never forget,” so George drove her to the Chandler city dump, and she NEVER forgot it.

Together they raised two children, owned and operated a successful automotive shop in Chandler, C&C Automotive, also building a successful reputation in the community.

Marjorie always had a houseful of teenagers, feeding her children’s friends, being a second Mom to many and always greeted everyone with a bright smile and a warm hug.

Marjorie never met a stranger.

Marjorie loved to cook for anyone willing to sit at her table.

She was a fabulous baker, loved to crochet, spending numerous hours making blankets so that newborn babies could come home wrapped in love.

She loved playing bingo and going to the casino and was proud of her 285-bowling score.

She loved spending time at the lake, camping, going to Pinetop, and being anywhere, and everywhere that her family was. She was feisty, spicy, and had the greatest laugh.

Marjorie is survived by her

husband of 51 years, George Hawkins, her son Shawn Hawkins and his wife

Dawn, Her daughter Amber Whitaker and her husband Patrick, Granddaughter

Shonci Hawkins and her Grandson Shawn Hawkins Jr.

She’s preceded in death by her Father and Mother.

Donations can be made in her honor to St. Jude’s Cancer Research.

Our Mom taught us everything, except how to live without her.
