Momo brown

Carol A. Hawkins was born August 21, 1946, to Robert and Gaynell Mosby in Wheelwright, Kentucky. Carol was the eldest daughter of her 7 siblings, and she was the matriarch of the family. Carol’s family moved to Columbus, Ohio in 1959 where she graduated from East High School in 1963.

After graduating high school, Carol met and married Thomas Edward Hawkins Jr., and together they had 3 children as issue of their marriage. They later divorced and Carol devoted her time to her family. Carol later worked for Anheuser Busch for 25 years where she retired. She later started her own catering
business where she cooked for any and everybody. Catering is where she found her calling… Giving.

Carol truly had a servant’s heart. She opened her home and heart to multitudes and fed masses. Carol joined Rhema Christian Center and served on the hospitality committee, and she also was deeply devoted to serving at The Lord Jesus Christ’s Church.

Carol A. Hawkins went home to be with the Lord November 24, 2022. She left peacefully at home surrounded by family on her favorite holiday- Thanksgiving.

She was preceded in death by her parents Robert Mosby and Gaynell Miller, Stepfather David Tartt, sisters: Vivian Mickens and Donna Sheffield, brothers: Samuel Porter and Randy Mosby.

    My heartfelt condolences go out to the children and family. Carol was my first babysitter for my daughter, Stacie, before she started daycare. We enjoyed family birthday parties and cookouts together. Carol will always be remembered as a good cook, beautiful woman and a genuinely sweet person. My continued prayers to you all.

  4. Thank you, my dear wonderful cousin, for taking the time in your busy work to find me in crowds and let me know what was safe for me to eat at events and how to get around my very specific diet needs yet still enjoy eating. Your concern was just an example of how you share yourself and your love. I’m sure our ancestors and the angels will look forward to enjoying your recipes on your next journey. Love you forever.

  5. To the Hawkins family, I have known you almost my entire life. We grew up together and shared in so many milestones. Ms. Hawkins has touched me personally in so many ways as the mother figure she was. I will always remember and cherish her contribution to my life. Smith Road feels the lost but we are all the better for her watch over us. God Bless you through this and I love you!

  13. Da’Mika (Best) and The Hawkins Family,

    Attempting to put into words to express my thoughts and sympathy is something that I simply can’t do.

    To lose the matriarch of the family leaves an absence that will linger for eternity, and can only be comforted with memories, loves, and holding on to all that she has poured into you all.

    I love you Best and i will continue to keep you in my prayers and ask the Lord to provide you and your family with everlasting comfort during this trying time.

    As time continues to go on I pray for serenity, peace, and a calm mind and body.

  14. My deepest condolences to the Hawkins family

    To the Hawkins family
    As long as I can remember,  anytime I visited, Ms Hawkins always made me feel like family.   She was so generous and giving.  All the birthday parties and holiday gatherings, the Hawkins house was the neighborhood house of Smith Rd.  Even on her 70th birthday,  she was serving us.   Ms. Hawkins really touched my life and she will forever be in my heart.  Sending hugs and prayers.   Love you.
