Visitation will be from 9AM until 10 AM Wednesday, December 30, 2015 at Holland Barry & Bennett Funeral Home. Funeral services will be at 10 AM Wednesday also at the funeral home with Pastor Roger James officiating. Burial will follow in New Union Cemetery, Lincoln.

Dorothy was born April 14, 1930 in Buffalo Hart, IL., the daughter of Russell and Letha Mae (Bozarth) Dennison. She married Eldon Hawks on June 11, 1988 in Lincoln, IL. He preceded her in death on November 16, 2014.

Dorothy was a member of Full Gospel Evangelistic Center, Lincoln. She had a deep faith. She was a blessing to others and often took the time to pray for her family and friends. Jesus accepted her with open arms and I am sure he said to her “Well done thy good and faithful servant.” She was a cook at the Christian Village for several years. Dorothy enjoyed crocheting and made many beautiful pieces for her family and friends. She collected dolls and crocheted beautiful clothing for them.

Surviving are her brother Roger Dennison and wife Mary of Elkhart, IL., sister Jill Gardner of Williamsville, IL., sister Elizabeth Jackson and husband David of Williamsville, IL.; and step daughters Mary Garcia of Lincoln, IL. and Gladys Patrick of Westmont, IL.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Eldon Hawks, brothers Jim Dennison, Marshall Dennison, and Don Dennsion, and sister Beulah Hunter.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Full Gospel Evangelistic Center and will be accepted at the funeral home.
