    She was a wonderful person and was so kind to me and Susan. She opened her home to me for an entire summer where I got to know her and the family in my last years of college.

    She smile and kind heart for all is something that I will always remember.

    She will be missed!

    The Turners – along with many other Hockinson families – were blessed to have known Irene from her & Earl’s visits to see Tim, Becky and the family. Irene will be missed but her memories will be greatly cherished by all of us Washingtonians. Love to Earl & the Hawkins from Chris & Tracy.

    We were blessed to have know Mrs. Hawkins for many years as they were friends of my family, Mr. Hawkins was our “insurance guy” and we were also fellow congregation members at HCLC before we moved out of the area. Praying for comfort and a peace that surpasses all understanding! She will be missed but rest assured that she is celebrating in Heaven with our Lord and Savior!

I know you will miss your life partner… Uncle Earl and Aunt Irene….going together like peanut butter and jelly…hard to imagine in my mind one without the other…that is the way it will always be for me…you two together!
