Marianne Hawkins, born on August 10, 1940 in Worms, Germany to Erwin and Emma Kull, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, December 22, 2020 after a short battle with COVID-19.
Marianne passed away peacefully surrounded by children. She was preceded in death by her parents, sister, brothers (all from Germany), and a great granddaughter, Lauren. Marianne came to the United States in 1962 and did a variety of jobs, including nursing, but mostly taking care of her four children. She was a long time member of First Church of Christ until she was unable to go anymore. She loved crocheting afghans and giving them to people, just to make them happy.
She is survived by her children, Stefan Hawkins (Peru), Patricia Books (James) (Peru), Margot Morgan (Kenny Music) (Peru), and Bryan Hawkins (Peru). Also surviving are grandchildren Katie Young (Joe) (Nevada), Eric Books (Peru), Nikki Books (Peru), TJ Morgan (Shelby) (Washington State), Joshua Morgan (Khyrstin) (Colorado), Chelsea Minns (Kris) (Bunker Hill), Krista Hawkins (Peru), Kaitlyn Wilson (Duwain) (South Carolina), Zachary Hawkins (Peru), Kayleigh Music (Peru), Amber Earnest (Texas), James Earnest (Texas), Elizabeth Earnest (Marion), and Nicole Davis (Aaron) (Ohio); and great-grandchildren, Avery, Aaron, Ava, Garrett, Rhett, Elias, James, Brandon, Caiden, Kelsey, Abby, Wyatt, Kaleb, Tabitha, Trace, and Owen.
There will be a celebration of life for Marianne held at First Church of Christ, 2584 S. Business 31 in Peru on Saturday, January 2, 2021 at 11am, followed by a dinner at the church.
