Obituary of Margaret P. Hawken

HAWKEN MARGARET P. – 08-20-1931 – 12-10-2023. Margaret passed away peacefully at the Passamaquoddy Lodge in St. Andrews, NB. Margaret Primrose (Cody) Hawken was the wife of the late Frank Hawken. Born in Rye, Middlesex, England, she is the daughter of the late James and Elizabeth (Chandler) Cody.

        Margaret’s greatest passion in life was caring for her husband, Frank, for 70 years. They immigrated from England in 1955 and worked hard to build a life in Canada. Margaret loved to sew, cook, travel, and music. Her favorite pastime was taking long walks outdoors with Frank.   When they were younger, they loved teaching ballroom dancing in St. Andrews.

          Margaret is survived by her two daughters, Barbara Cody (Stephen) of St. Andrews NB and Sandra Holdway (Roger), grandchildren Laura Tillack (James) of Leduc, AB, Aimee Neaverson (Tom) of Glinton, England, Emily Smith of St. Andrews, NB, and Sarah Smith (Jordan) of Vancouver, BC, William, Dorothy and Joanna and several great-grandchildren: Kailey, Savannah, Kori,

Kade, Brooke, Melody, Jalen, Rylen.

        A very special thank you to the wonderful staff at Passamaquoddy Lodge. They truly made Margaret’s time there feel like home with their care, compassion, and patience.

     By Margaret’s request, cremation will take place. A joint memorial service to celebrate Margaret and Frank’s life will be held later in the summer of 2024 at Humphreys Funeral Home Chapel.
