Gertie Hawn Alexander

Gertie Hawn Alexander, 82, was ushered into the arms of Jesus on July 12, 2021, at her home in Jayess, surrounded by her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She was the daughter of Charley and Emma Hawn.
Her passion was caring for her family, and she did it like no one else. She loved her Lord and was a faithful member of Powell’s Grove Church, The Refuge, and anywhere else she could share the love of Christ. Her faith was not confined to the walls of a building. She was employed many years at Kellwood in Monticello and Topeka Tilton School.
Mamagert was preceded in death by the love of her life , Howard Alexander; her parents; her brothers, Charles Jr. , Jonah, and Wesley Hawn; and her sisters, Bertie Walker and Eudena Clark.
She is survived by one sister, Rebecca Hawn; four daughters, Deborah (Mark) McCain, Stephanie Wininger, Becky (Harold) Thornhill, Aletha (Lance) McCloud; eight grandchildren; and 20 great-grandchildren.
She was reunited with the love of her life at a graveside service and burial at Greer Cemetery, just like she requested. Forever in our hearts, mom. We love you.
