She had a passion and talent for drawing and painting as well as an unmatched love for her horses and animals that she passed down to her girls. She had a fiery personality and great sense of humor. She had a very diverse group of friends from very young to the old and she will be greatly missed by many. She was preceded in death by her parents Wayne L. Hawk, Helen Jacqueline Gruwell and her husband Matt L. Gruwell, A brother Wayne P. Hawk and her beloved husband and soul mate Martin A. Thompson.  She is survived by her two daughters Jacqueline D.
