November 11, 1934 - February 7, 2020
Shirley A. Hawk, age 85, passed away February 7, 2020, at 1:32 pm, at home surrounded by her loving family.
Shirley was born November 11, 1934 in Lima, OH, to Paul and Barbara (Feigley) Korn, both of whom preceded her in death. On February 23, 1957 she married William F. Hawk who preceded her in death on April 25, 1997.
Shirley was an exceptional person who constantly put others before herself. She would always find a way to show love and support to those who needed it. She had a passion for charitable works, especially as a supporter of the American Heart Association. Shirley was also a board member for Hanley House in Lima and loved to volunteer at St Charles. She greatly enjoyed watching her favorite programs such as Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune and she also delighted in bird watching through her bedroom window. Shirley was passionate about her membership with the Lima Senior Center where she made many dear friends. She loved to go on “secret trips” with her family as well as all of her planned travel throughout Indiana and Ohio. Family was what mattered the most to Shirley. She cherished the time that she would spend with her loved ones, and she especially loved to spend time with her grandchildren. Shirley was a special woman, and she will be sorely missed by all those who were fortunate enough to know her.
