Mrs. Hadwin was the definition of a Proverbs 31 woman. Mrs. Hadwin was a long time member of Good News Christian Center. Irene loved gardening, and at her home in Marshall she kept an immaculate magazine-quality garden. Mrs. Hadwin loved to cook for her family and friends, and there was always food on the table in her home for anyone who visited. Irene was an encouraging and inspiring woman, never judgmental, and always ready to listen when her friends and family needed her. “God is Faithful, and God has been so good to me,” are words that Irene lived by and loved to share.
Mrs. Hadwin was preceded in death by her loving husband of 50 years Mr. G.P. “Boots” Hadwin; her daughter, Charlotte Byrd, her parents; and her brother, James Bracken. She is survived by her daughters, Glenda Cochran, Dale Crow and husband Benny, Cherry Black, and Darlene Boren, 15 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren, 27 great great grandchildren, and numerous other family and friends. Mrs. Cecil Irene Hadwin is much loved and will be greatly missed.
