Clara Arlene Parkinson Hawkins

Clara Arlene Parkinson Hawkins, age 88, passed away May 25, 2020 at her home with her children by her side.

She was born March 2, 1932 in Ogden. UT to William Joshua and Cora Leone Banner Parkinson.

She had lived in Devil’s Slide and Ogden, Utah most of her life.

She married the love of her life Darold Blaine Hawkins on February 18, 1948 in Elko, NV.  They spent 62 years together before his passing on May 29, 2010.  He has been waiting for his beautiful wife for 10 years and she was ready to be reunited with him.

She was a caring, loving mother and housewife who always put her family first.  After her children were raised, she did work in a nursing home and as an in-home nurse.  She had so much love to give; she also took in many foster children over a 15-year period.  Many still think of her as mom and they have stayed in contact all these years.

She is survived by her seven children:  Blaine (Marie) Hawkins, Jackie (Don) Greenfield, Roxanne (Jim) Pierce, Pam (Jeff) Anderson, Tracie (Todd) Potter, Lance (Marlo) Hawkins and Patti Hawkins.  She as 26 grandchildren, 53 great grandchildren, with two more expected this year and 4 great great grandchildren.  Also surviving are two brothers, Tom (Jeanette) Parkinson and Dale (Dale) Parkinson.

She is preceded in death by her husband, parents, brothers:  Fay, Ray, Don, Jack and baby Parkinson and a baby sister Ellen Elaine.

We would like to give special thanks to Julie and Christal for their loving care, assistance and friendship they gave to my mother.  She truly thought the world of you.

Private family services will be held.

Thank you for sharing what love is and how a mother truly can give love.

She was such a fun loving lady. Once when she was at our home she tried to eat some Puperroni as Tracie watched. After a couple bites she said that's not very good. Laughing, Tracie says "probably not mom that is a dog treat".

Grandma I miss you everyday and I don't know how I am going to handle not being able to talk to you or laugh with you about everything. You always were so kind and loved me and my kids you never judged me for anything I did. I have so many memories with you throughout my life from holidays, birthdays, and just our hanging out for no reason days. As mush as I don't want to admit it I know Billy was you best friend lol ALL of us knew that you told him and me everything that would happen in your life after grandpa passed, I told grandpa I would always be there for you no matter what who knew it would br by giving you billy as a friend. I know you are back with grandpa after waiting 10 years and arehappy and out of pain. I love you and will miss you for the rest of my life.
