It is with profound sadness that we, the family, announce the passing of Louise Hawkins, on Sunday, August 2, 2020 at Northside General Hospital. Born in Sydney Mines on March 5, 1956, to Shirley (Tremblett) and John Hawkins, Louise lived a beautiful life filled with the love of her family and friends. Louise’s greatest pleasure came from the joy that she brought to others and she always worked hard to make people happy. She enjoyed Saturday night at the Pensioner’s Club, listening to Timmy Jackson playing her favorite songs. Louise and Stan hosted many wonderful gatherings in Dingwall, at the Sugar Shack, where Louise fed everyone who arrived. Louise was the best cook you could find and was famous for her coconut cream and meat pies. Louise developed kidney disease as a young child and was fortunate to receive a kidney transplant in 2011. Though she was sick throughout her life, Louise always had a caring medical team on her side. We would like to thank the doctors and nurses who supported Louise over the years including Dr. Hewlett, Stephanie and staff from the Renal clinic, the friends she made at the Dialysis Unit at Northside General, especially Billy (I wouldn’t trade him for a hundred dollars), Dr. Ignacio and the staff of Northside General and Cape Breton Regional Hospitals. Your care and compassion always meant so much. Louise is survived by her mother, Shirley Hawkins; brothers, John (Beverly), Blake (June), Boo (Ann); sisters, Gail (Cecil), Paula (Michael) and many aunts, uncles, cousins and their families. She will be greatly missed by her nieces and nephews who she thought of as her own children, including: Michelle, Emily, Addisyn, Mason, Lexton, Melissa, Noah, Owen, Blake, Kathryn, Danielle, Candace, Jeremy, Hillary, Holly, Ethan, Desiree, John Joseph, Nick, Sam, Quinn, Bonnie, Karen, John, Stephanie, Glen Robert, Ashlea, Ceilidh, Cody, Kail, Kristen, Shelby, Haven, Hailey, Kadence, Jayden, Britainea and their families. Louise was predecease­d by her father, John Hawkins; brother, Lloyd, in infancy; nephew, Jason Hawkins; brother-in-law, Charlie McCormick; lifetime friend, Stan MacDonald and companion, Stanley Burton. Also left to mourn are her many close friends including the residents of Beacon Crescent, Deedee, Debbie, Yvonne, Beanie, Lorraine, Darlene, Paul, Shirley, Carl, Troy, Pickle and families. A Mass of Christian burial will take place Friday, Aug. 7, 2020 at 10 a.m. at Holy Family Parish with burial to follow in parish cemetery, with Fr. Jim Oliver officiatin­g. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the St. Vincent de Paul Society. You were one of a kind, Weezie, and our lives will never be the same without you We love and miss you so much. The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These people have an appreciati­on, a sensitivit­y, and an understand­ing of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
