Barbara Hardcastle (Hawkins)

Barbara Hardcastle Hawkins
1943 - 2020

 

Barbara was born on 30 June, 1943 in Clovis, New Mexico. She strongly identified as an Air Force Brat, growing up living in multiple places and exposed to multiple cultures, including postwar Germany and then Japan. She had a strong ongoing affinity with these nations her whole life, and in recent years had visited Germany with her sister Gwen (where they found their childhood home, and also a candy store that carried many of the confections they recalled from that age) and going on a high school reunion cruise with her classmates from Johnson High School in Japan.

She is survived by two sons, myself, and my brother David Stephenson, currently residing in Skopje, Macedonia (whose borders are currently locked), two sisters Daphene Willoughby of Watertown, TN and Gwen Risinger of Blanco, TX, one brother Joe Hardcastle, of California, 3 grandchildren, Morgan, Asher, and Liesl, currently of Wichita Falls, Tx - more cousins than I can here name, and many friends.

The Johnson High alumni will miss Barbara very much.
