Our mom, Poppy Hawkes, was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis 5 years ago. She continued to live a full life, working and walking her dog and enjoying her family. A little under a year ago she moved in with her oldest daughter and her family. She could no longer take of her home on her own. She loved living with Sarah and enjoyed seeing her grandchildren on a regular basis.

This winter was a tough one on mom. She battled pneumonia, stomach illness, and they seemed to come back to back. In the end it was just to much to always struggle to breathe, she was tired, and died peacefully in the hospital surrounded by her children.

A lifelong athlete, teacher, and dedicated family woman she touched many lives and is missed by all.

My two sisters and I will be running the Wineglass Marathon 5K in memory of our mom. Please visit our First Giving page to support our efforts!

Thank you,
Heather
