It is with great sadness that the family of Ellen Hawkins (nee Berry) announces her passing on November 3, 2021 at home in her 85th year. Ellen was the beloved wife of the late Henry Hawkins. Cherished mother of Janet Pixley (Larry), Linda Bly (Richard), Julie Belnap (Tony), and Carol Blair (John). Loved by grandchildren Heidi (Justin), Amy (Nick), Sarah (Cory), Laura (Donivan), David, Matthew, Ryan, Hailey (Josh), Colin (Rebecca), and Austin. Proud great-grandmother to Leah, Rozley, Hudson, Charlotte, Anja, Henry and Avery. Sadly missed by family in England Ivy (John), George, Hazel, Pam (Noddy), Betty, Tracy, and Rebecca (Rob). In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to the Kidney Foundation, SMILE(VON) Program or Hospice Quinte. Mum was a happy person, always singing, lived for her family and enjoyed knitting. After a valiant 30 year fight with kidney disease, death came with dignity and on Mum's terms.
