Jane Collier Hawley

July 22, 2022, 77, Goldsboro –

Jane Collier Hawley, 77, completed her earthly journey on Friday, July 22, 2022. Jane was born in Wilson County on September 15, 1944, to the late James Thelmer Collier and Lossie Pearl Pennington Collier. She was also preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, Jerry Lee Hawley; sisters, Pearl Whitley and Frances Watson; and brother, James William Collier. Jane was the rock of her family, always making sure they were taken care of. Her motherly and grandmotherly love and care will be greatly missed.

Faith was both important and evident in Jane’s life. Fulfilling her membership roles at Pikes Crossroads Pentecostal Holiness Church through her prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness, Jane was a constant in the life of the church. A longtime member of the Women’s Ministries, Jane created and sustained many friendships in her church family.

A service to celebrate Jane’s life will be held by the graveside in Evergreen Memorial Cemetery on Tuesday, July 26, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. with Rev. Ferrell Hardison officiating. The family will greet friends immediately following the service at the cemetery and other times at her home. Jane will lie in state on Tuesday from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at Seymour Funeral Home.

Church and family took top priority in Jane’s life, but she also loved her work family. Jane worked a 37-year career at Excell Linde in Goldsboro before retirement.

Jane is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Stacie and Scott Bailey of Goldsboro; grandchildren, Madison Bailey and Mason Bailey; and sister, Helen Hogge of Newport News, VA.

Memorials may be given in Jane’s memory to Pikes Crossroads Pentecostal Holiness Church, 2494 Pikeville-Princeton Road, Pikeville, NC 27863.

Services are entrusted to Seymour Funeral Home and Cremation Service. Online condolences may be sent to the family at www.seymourfuneralhome.com.
