Edith D. Hawk

July 17, 1914 ‒ November 29, 2007

Marion, Ohio

Edith D. Hawk, age 93, formerly of 587 Mary Street, Marion, died early Thursday morning, November 29, 2007, at Fairhaven Community Care Center in Upper Sandusky.

She was born in Caledonia, Ohio, on July 17, 1914, the daughter of the late Quinn P. and Della Hinds Kightlinger.

On December 24, 1939 she married Donald S. Hawk. They were married for 43 years before his passing in 1983.

Edith was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Marion for nearly 55 years. She was also a lifetime member of the Vera Chapter #64, Order of The Eastern Star.

A very independent woman, Edith kept a spotless home and was very comfortable in her kitchen. You may remember her many baked goods; especially her chocolate chip cookies and pumpkin pie. And of course everything was made from scratch.

When not in her kitchen, Edith would spend sunny days working in her yard.

As a mother and grandmother you could not find a more devoted and loving woman. Edith took great pride in her family and was instrumental in creating many special relationships.

Left to cherish her memory are her two daughters: Becky (Dan) Gorenflo, and Darlene (Gary) Miley, both of Marion; one son: Douglas Hawk of Boyton Beach, Florida; four grandchildren: Cory Ward, Jeff Gorenflo and twins Lindsay and Farin Miley; great granddaughter Natalie Vania; sister-in-law Evelyn Yarman of Newport Richie, Florida; numerous nieces and nephews; and her good friend and neighbor Margaret Frost.

Including her husband and parents, Edith was preceded in death by three sisters Bertha Dice, Betty Seaburn, and Alta Hill; and brothers Arthur, Rock, and Harold Kightlinger. She was the last surviving member of her family.

Her family will greet friends on Sunday from 2 – 5 p.m. at the Denzer-Farison-Hottinger & Snyder Funeral Home, 360 East Center Street, Marion, where funeral services will be held on Monday at 2:00 p.m. Burial will follow in the Claridon Cemetery.

Pallbearers will be, Doug Hawk, Dan Gorenflo, Gary Miley, Cory Ward, Jeff Gorenflo, and Bruce Davis.

Memorial contributions may be made to Fairhaven Community Care Center, 850 Marseilles Avenue, Upper Sandusky, Ohio 43551.
