Mrs. Margaret T. Hawk


Mrs. Margaret T. Hawk, 96, wife of the late Russell Joseph Hawk and a resident of Onancock, passed away Tuesday, April 9, 2019, at Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital. A native of the Ryukyu Islands in Japan, she was born on July 25, 1922.

As fate would have it, Margaret met Russell while he was stationed in Japan during World War II, and it was love at first sight. Soon after, they were married and began traveling the globe throughout Mr. Hawk’s U.S. Navy career. Following his retirement in the early 70s, the Hawk family relocated to the Eastern Shore. With her kind soul and beautiful heart, Mrs. Hawk was adored by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. For several years, she worked as a clerk for Roses and was well loved by her customers. She enjoyed working in her yard and a good game of bingo, but nothing ever compared to spending time with her family. As the matriarch of the Hawk family, Margaret’s presence will be greatly missed, however her memory forever remembered and celebrated.     

Survivors include her three children, Isako Kanno and husband, Susumu, of Charlotte, N.C., Peter Hawk, of Onancock, and Mark Hawk, of Virginia Beach, Va.; seven grandchildren, Hiroshi, Aimee, Mark, Angie, Amber, Noah, and Corey; and five great-grandchildren, Adrianna, Zayden, Scarlett, Storm, and Lilliana; all of whom she very much cherished. 

Funeral services will be conducted from the chapel of the Williams-Onancock Funeral Home on Sunday, April 14, 2019, at 2 p.m., with the Rev. Robert Fletcher officiating.  Interment will follow in the Fairview Lawn Cemetery.  There will be a visitation at the funeral home one hour prior to the service.
