Linda Charlotte Hawkins-75 years Ferrisburgh, VT
Born to Chester and Dorothy (White) Hawkins
Linda lived her whole life on her family homestead, on Hawkins Rd in Ferrisburgh. They even named a bay in the lake in their honor.
Her love for animals is 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 2 to entertain. It doesn’t stop there, her ability to raise and train dogs, in turn she took much comfort. Also 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 then 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 & Lance Steady of Ferrisburgh.
One Nephew-Scott Hawkins
Six Grandchildren-Kristopher Gunn, Stanley Steady, Sarah Gunn, Katherine Bushey Lahar, Bella Fysh & Kayla Fysh.
Three Great Grandchildren-Melinda Gunn, Alice Fysh & Tommy Gunn (yes like the gun)
Plus many others (Joe & Cristy) and all the caretakers and nurses that have helped alone the way!
