Tommie Sue Hawkins went to be with the Lord on August 28th, 2017 at Texoma Medical Center.

A celebration of life will be held Tuesday, September 5th, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at Bratcher Funeral Home Chapel, 401 W. Woodard St, Denison, TX. A graveside service will follow at Cedarlawn Memorial Park.

Tommie Sue was born September 8th, 1938 in Allison, Oklahoma to Tom and Sue (Bennett) Fields. She attended Achille High School and was part of the girls' basketball team. It was in AHS where her life would be changed forever.

She met the love of her life, Jimmy Hawkins, and they were married July 24th, 1956. They began their 61 years of marriage in Greenville, Texas. With Jimmy being an active serviceman of the U.S. Air Force, the next 20-plus years were spent in Louisiana, Florida, Montana, Newfoundland, California, and Hawaii, just to name a few. Upon returning from Hawaii, Tommie Sue began her 29 year career at the Sherman K-Mart and Super K-Mart stores where she ultimately retired in 2003. While working at K-Mart, she took time each year to load up the grandchildren and take them to see the sights in the family RV, from Missouri to Las Vegas and everywhere in between.

After retirement, Mawmaw got to devote her time to some of her passions, such as working in the yard, loving on grandchildren and great- grandchildren, cookin, cheering on the Texas Rangers almost every game, and getting her hair done so she could go sit next to Pawpaw at Choctaw - hoping to hit it big!!!

She is survived by her loving and adoring husband; Daughter, Judy Sue Hawkins; Son, James Dale Hawkins; Brother, Kenneth Fields; Grandchildren, Lucas (Melissa) Hawkins, James Garcia, and Jessica Garcia; Great-grandchildren, Briana, Deuce, Victoria, Malyssa Sue, and Jax; and several nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents; her mother and father-in-law, Truman and Essie Hawkins; and grandchildren, Jacob and Micah Hawkins.

Pallbearers will be James Garcia, Lucas Hawkins, Deuce Stapleton, Bob Cox, David Estes, and Lee Saylors.
