Kathleen Diane Goode Hawkins
Rosewood Heights | Wednesday, October 21 2009
Born Aug. 4, 1955 in Alton, she was the daughter of Robert Goode and Barbara J. (Hardesty) Goode Easley.
A 1973 graduate of Roxana High School, she married Clarence Daniel "Danny" Hawkins, Jr. Oct. 7, 1978 in Clinton, Ill. He survives.

Hawkins, Sr. of Mt. Vernon.
She was preceded in death by her mother; her son, Jared R. Hawkins; and a brother, Michael Goode.
