February 26, 1920-April 27, 2014
With sadness we announce the passing of Mabel Hawkins (nee Duggan). Mabel was born in Kamloops, BC. She worked as a secretary and accountant in Kelowna, Ottawa, Victoria and The Hague prior to her marriage to Derrick in 1957. After Derrick’s death in 2012, Mabel moved to Quadra Island to live with her son Philip and his family.
In May of 2013 Mabel moved into Evergreen Seniors Home. Mabel loved her family, her garden, the mountains, the sea and good books. She had a love of learning and adventure, and a deep compassion for others. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the staff at Evergreen who cared so deeply for Mabel. Their compassion and gentleness was beyond what we could have ever hoped for. We would also like to thank Dr. Keith Graham for his attentiveness and care.
Mabel is survived by her daughter, Barbara, son Philip and their families. We will miss her greatly.
