Linda Hawkins

Linda Kay Hawkins, 60, of Fairlawn, Ohio, passed away Friday (Aug. 30, 2013) surrounded in love by her family.

Linda was born in Wheeling to Carl and Lucile Lynch on Feb. 24, 1953. She graduated from Warwood High School. While studying at West Virginia University, Linda met and fell in love with Larry. They married on Dec. 21, 1974. She went on to earn a degree in nursing from Ohio Valley School of Nursing. She worked as a registered nurse for more than 25 years.

A cradle Presbyterian, Linda was a member of Westminster Presbyterian Church. She enjoyed knitting, cross-stitching, gardening and volunteering, but most of all she loved to spend time with her family. Being a mother was central to Linda’s life. She was a constant example of Christ, especially evident in the nurturing of her family. When she was diagnosed with cancer, Linda chose optimism and faith. She led her family with her example of turning to Christ and finding strength in him.

Preceded in death by her parents, Carl and Lucile (Hagerman) Lynch, Linda is survived by her loving husband, Larry; her children, Kelly, Michael and Bethany; her brother, Carl “Gary” Lynch; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws.

The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the Cleveland Clinic for their compassionate care and support of Linda’s fiercely fought battle with cancer, and to the Akron General Intensive Care Unit for their support and care in her final hours.

Visitation will be held at HOPE Church, 520 Hornbeck Road, Morgantown (off Exit 1 on I-68), from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday. A memorial service will be held at noon, followed by a reception.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial donations be made in Linda’s honor to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, 14 Penn Plaza, Suite 1710, New York, NY 10122, or made online ocrf.org.
