Althenia Hawkins Obituary

Althenia "Frances" Hawkins, 93, from Raeford, NC passed away peacefully on March 22, 2024, at Scotia Village in Laurinburg.  She had been a resident at Scotia Village for 13 years.  Frances was the beloved wife of the late Raymond Hawkins with whom she raised four children during 64 years of marriage.  Her greatest joy was being a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.  She delighted in all their accomplishments and visits.

Her deep Christian faith guided her throughout life.  She was a faithful member of Hillcrest Baptist Church in Raeford.  There she volunteered for many years teaching Sunday School, Vacation Bible School and preparing fellowship meals.  She was best known for her delicious ten layered chocolate cake!

Frances was a preschool teacher at Raeford Kindergarten for many years.  All the children loved “Miss Hawkins" as she loved them.  She was kind and humble, always seeing the best in everyone.  Frances was energized by interactions with people from all walks of life.

Thank you to all the staff and friends at Scotia Village for taking such good care of Mama (and Daddy) over the years.  Scotia Village truly became their home...they loved all the staff and residents.  We feel so fortunate that they were able to spend the last years of their lives in such a loving, compassionate, happy place.

The pain of letting go is hard to bear, especially since she was such a loving mother and beautiful soul, but we’ll think of Daddy jingling his change and pacing by the pearly gates welcoming her with open arms.

She is survived by children Linda English (Butch), Raymond Eugene “Gene” Hawkins, Jr. (Donna), Kathy Schmidt (John), Kim McGirt (John), grandchildren Jack and Hannah English, Jeff Schmidt (Caroline), Mallory Wojciechowski (Timothy), Jessie Hawkins (Kathleen), Mollie McGirt and great granddaughters Caroline and Charlotte English, Morgan and Madeline Schmidt, Abigail, Ella and Hallie Wojciechowski.

Graveside service will be held at Raeford City Cemetery on Friday, March 29 at 1:00pm. 

Memorial service will be held at Scotia Village, 2200 Elm Avenue, Laurinburg, NC 28352, with visitation at 3:30pm. and service at 4:00pm.
