Marjorie Hawkins

Marjorie Alger Hawkins, 88, longtime resident of McCammon, passed away, Friday, January 12, 2024 at Elegant Assisted Living, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. Marjorie was reunited with her husband, Arland, of 69 years. It will be a wonderful reunion after 13 years apart. 

Marjorie was born on January 8, 1936 to Orlas and Delma Alger, in Saticoy, California. She was the 5 of 9 children. She met Arland on a blind date in 1954 when he was home on leave while in the US Army. They were later married in 1955 and then sealed in the temple on July 9, 2008. They raised 5 children, Gene Hawkins, Dan Hawkins (JoJo), Debbie Hainline (Ken), Barbie Linderman (Ron), and Richard Hawkins (Melanie). 

Together they bought and operated a small dairy farm on E. Price Rd. She spent many hours milking cows, feeding calves, and running lunches to Dad as he farmed in Hawkins Basin. She worked in Lava at Bertie’s Market, The Chuckwagon, and also at the Lava Inn. 

Mom loved her garden and bird watching. She always had fresh grown vegetables for canning and beautiful fresh flowers around the house. Mom was an excellent seamstress and taught many people around McCammon to sew. She wrote short stories and even had a few published in the Reader’s Digest. She also loved to paint beautiful scenery pictures. 

Arland and Marjorie enjoyed snowmobile rides with their neighbors, Glen and Bobbie Griffeth and other members of the Marsh Valley Snowpunchers Club. Mom enjoyed having her grandkids, Tiffany and Ahley Hainline, Jordan (Chelsey) Linderman, Krissy (Dustin) Dunn, Keith and Kenith Hawkins, great-grandchildren, Cayson Linderman and Hailey Hawkins visit her on the farm and later in assisted living. Her family brought her a lot of joy. 
She was an active and faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She served as Primary President and Relief Society President. She also sang in the church choir. 

She is survived by 2 sisters, Evelyn Fuller and Kay Woodbury; 1 brother, John Alger; and 3 children, Dan, Barbie, and Richard.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Arland; both of her parents; 2 brothers, Ray and Leonard Alger; and 3 sisters, Afton, and Maryann Alger, and Dema Randall; her son Gene Hawkins; daughter Debbie Hainline; son-in-law, Ken Hainline; and grandson Jason Hainline.
