Obituary: Mary Anne Hawley

Mary Anne (Goll) Hawley, aged 90, of Clearwater, died peacefully in her sleep on Jan. 17, 2020, in Conway Springs. Mary Anne had a special relationship with her Lord and took comfort knowing he was there to meet her.
Mary Anne was the only child of William and Viola (Poehner) Goll. She was born May 23, 1929, in Wichita, and later married Donald Lee Hawley. Mary and Donald had one son, Donald Karl Hawley.
Mary Anne worked many years at Home Lumber in Clearwater. Later in life, she enjoyed volunteering at the Clearwater Historical Museum. She took great pride in her hometown. When Mary Anne moved to Wellington to be near her family, she always told people she met that Clearwater was still her home.
Preceding Mary Anne in death were her parents, her husband and her son. She is survived by her grandchildren, Jason Lee Hawley (Kelly) of Wellington, Karlynne (Taylor) Armstrong, and Carie Anne Hawley of Oklahoma; one niece, Babe Poehner; one nephew, Stan Hawley; and six great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
Mary Anne was adamant that she did not want a funeral service and we all know ‘Grandma Mary’ could be stubborn. Following her wishes, cremation has taken place and her ashes will be scattered at a later date. Those wishing to honor her memory are encouraged to send a memorial in her name to the Clearwater Historical Museum.
