DALLAS Linda Fae Richards Hawkinson left her beloved husband, family and friends on August 21, 2007 to be with her heavenly family. Linda was born in Alice, Texas, October 26, 1949. She grew up in Odessa, Texas and graduated from Permian High School in 1968.
She worked in the communications business for many years, starting from the bottom at AT&T and later working her way to Phone Center Management. She was a true professional in her field.
She is survived by her husband Ron Hawkinson who was her soul mate, her beautiful daughter Kelli Harman Strother, her husband Jack and 2 angel faced granddaughters Harman and Hannah, her loving father Bill Richards and wife Marty, her precious sister Chris Schuessler, husband Jim and son Nash Peterson, step-daughter Kim and husband Charles Troth. Also by many loving friends; among them Barbara Copeland and Jana Watson, Jan Kote and Shylo Preston who were with the family at her bedside. Last but not least, her dog Puddles. She is preceded in death by her mother Euvonne Richards and her brother Tom Richards. We will miss her beautiful smiling face, her contagious laughter, her chin jutting out when she was mad, the beautiful poems she wrote for family and friends and for her hugs and kisses she always greeted everyone with. Your love will remain with us forever.
