Patricia Ann Hawkins
February 1, 1944 - June 6, 2018
Patricia Ann Hawkins, age 74, of Indianapolis, passed away on Wednesday, June 6, 2018. She was born in Louisville, Kentucky, on February 1, 1944 to Lloyd and Catherine Irene (Mack) Hotle. She graduated from Speedway High School in 1962, and went on to marry Harry Hawkins. Together they enjoyed fifty-five years of marriage. She cared for many patients as an LPN for several hospitals, including Larue Carter and Methodist, nursing homes, and also as a private duty nurse. Patricia was a member of the John Wesley Free Methodist Church where she taught Sunday school for over twenty years. She was gifted in working with ceramics and painting, and enjoyed collecting angels and teacups. Even though she was an avid fan of Elvis, she had “gas in her blood”, and come race day she would have every radio in the house tuned in to the Indy 500.
Patricia is survived by her husband: Harry Hawkins of Indianapolis; son: Don (Kristie) Hawkins of Avon; daughter: Sonya Sims of Avon; and grandchildren: Kegan Ferguson, Olivia Ferguson, and Austin Sims, all of Indianapolis, and Katie Hawkins and Michael Hawkins, both of Avon.
She preceded in death by her parents: Lloyd and Irene Hotle; and brother: Lloyd “Sonny” Hotle.
