Mary Jane Hawkins Obituary
Mary Jane Hawkins, was born in Marion, Indiana on July 4, 1919, and passed away at the age of 98 at her home in Glenview, Ill. on December 23, 2017. She was the oldest daughter of James Sumner Hawkins (1983-1968) and Ada Esther Swanger Hawkins (1893-1979) and the sister of Harriett Hawkins Field (1921-2010) and James Swanger Hawkins (1925-2002). She attended Marion High School and continued her education at Monticello Jr. Women's College studying general education. After her college training, Mary Jane began working for the Jones family business, American Security Co., as a bookkeeper. From 1943-1946 Mary Jane saved her country with 27,000 other women, by joining the temporary Navy service called the WAVES. Upon returning from the WAVES, Mary Jane returned to work. In 1964 the Jones family purchased Glenview State Bank, and asked Mary Jane and Lois Crawford, a long time co-worker and friend, to relocate and help with the start-up. They made the move, bought a home together and worked at Glenview State Bank until retirement. Mary Jane was a member of DAR as was her mother and grandmother. She loved water color painting and did many paintings for family and friends. She also loved getting together with family and friends, traveling and picture taking. She is survived by her nieces and nephews in both Indiana (James Edward Hawkins and Elizabeth Ann Hawkins Donohue) and California (Robert William Field, Mary Stanley Field Mayes, and John Edward Field). A memorial service will be held Thursday, April 19, 2018 at 11 am at N.H. Scott & Hanekamp Funeral Home, 1240 Waukegan Road, Glenview (just south of Lake Ave. on west side). Funeral information 847-998-1020.
