Linda Charlotte Hawkins, 75, Ferrisburgh
FERRISBURGH — Linda Charlotte Hawkins, born Oct. 11, 1944, in Burlington to Chester and Dorothy (White) Hawkins, passed on Thursday, Feb. 20, 2020, in Burlington. She was 75.
Linda lived her whole life on her family homestead, on Hawkins Road, in Ferrisburgh. They even named a bay in the lake in their honor.
Her love for animals was unconditional, from the very first time she brought home a kitten from the barn. It only grew from there, to her extreme fondness of horses of which our family has had many, and still have two to entertain. It doesn’t stop there. She took much comfort in her ability to raise and train dogs. In turn many others have been able to take happiness in the company.
Now let’s not forget the fun hunting here in the Green Mountains, and mom’s favorite the venison, YUMMY! Plus, many other treats.
Linda fought a long and hard battle with cancer, more rounds in the ring than Tyson, till the end.
Tough Lady. To the point she was able to spend her last weeks at home. Much to her enjoyment and delight.
Linda was predeceased by her parents, her husband, brother, and niece. Linda leaves behind her two sons; Chad Steady of Charlotte and Lance Steady of Ferrisburgh; one nephew, Scott Hawkins; six grandchildren, Kristopher Gunn, Stanley Steady, Sarah Gunn, Katherine Bushey Lahar, Bella Fysh and Kayla Fysh; three great-grandchildren, Melinda Gunn, Alice Fysh and Tommy Gunn (yes like the gun); plus many others (Joe and Cristy) and all the caretakers and nurses that have helped along the way!
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 28, at Assembly of God Christian Center in Ferrisburgh. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to Morgan Horse Farm, Weybridge, VT. To read the obituary and to send online condolences to her family visit brownmcclayfuneralhomes.com.◊
