Ann Wilder Hawkins
April 30, 1935 – May 4, 2018
Ann Wilder Hawkins, lovingly known as Mama Ann to her family and Miss Ann to her many friends, entered into eternal peace on Friday May 4, 2018. She spent her last days in the compassionate care of West Georgia Hospice and was surrounded by her family as she crossed into heaven.
Her family was her pride and joy and she was a loving mom, grandmother sister and friend. Daughter of the late Errett B and Thelma Mae Hunt Wilder, Ann was born in Tallassee, Alabama on April 30, 1935. She grew up in LaGrange, Georgia and spent the last 41 years of her life in Goodwater, Alabama. She loved yard sales and hardly ever passed one up. She maintained a booth at Longleaf Antiques where she loved displaying and selling her latest bargains. She was preceded in death by her husband, Leonard Hawkins of Goodwater, AL; siblings, Ray Wilder, EB Wilder, Douglas Wilder, Jimmy Wilder, and Carolyn Gaither. Mama Ann will forever be remembered by her 4 children, Gina Lardon and husband Duane, Barry Taylor and wife Dana, Jan Gibson (Eric Redmond), and Tim Taylor and wife Lori; treasured grandchildren, Elliott Lardon, Elissa Lardon, Danielle Hood, Landon Taylor and Reagan Taylor, Hamilton Bradshaw; her brother, Don (Sandra) Wilder of Auburn, AL; along with numerous nieces and nephews and countless dear friends who were blessed to know her.
Ann's life will be celebrated in a private family ceremony.
Memorial contributions may be made to West Georgia Hospice Center, 1510 Vernon Road, LaGrange GA 30240. Mama Ann, we will miss you dearly but rejoice in your transition to your forever home in heaven.
