Born on May 2, 1921 in Kinmundy, IL, she was the youngest daughter of Edward P. and E. Maud Hites Hawkey. She was united in marriage to Franklin P. Detrick of Sugar Run on Oct. 20, 1945 at Christ Episcopal Church in Towanda, by a good friend of the family, Rev. Henry George Russell, pastor of the church. Witnesses were Claude and Hazel Dietz of Sugar Run, their very good friends.

To this union, four children were born, Kerry E. (Beverly) Detrick of Sugar Run, Janet I. (John) Harned of Camptown, Rodney K. Detrick of Sugar Run and Cheryl L.

She was predeceased by her wonderful husband of 43 years on Aug. 19, 1988; two brothers, Elmo and Clifford Hawkey and two sisters, Imo Smith and Nellie Whitford of Illinois.

She was a wife and homemaker to her family and in later years became an Avon Representative for 13 years. She also loved to piece quilts and quilt them by hand and also did embroidery work and later learned how to crochet.
