Norma June Hawley (nee Ruggles) passed away in Baltimore MD on April 8, 2021 at the age of 91.
Born on October 1, 1929 and raised in Tunnelton, WV, “June” relocated to Baltimore with her husband and son due to her husband’s work with B&O Railroad.

Much of her heart remained in West Virginia, and she made frequent visits to her family in Tunnelton throughout her life.

She is survived by her granddaughters Jamie and Pam Hawley, her great-granddaughter Jordyn Gittleson, her great-great grandson Brady James Gittleson and her brother Hugh Ruggles. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband James Prentis Hawley, her son James Robert Hawley, her daughter-in-law Sabina Hawley, her father Norman Ruggles, her mother Katie Sanders Ruggles, her brothers Darrell Ruggles, Wade Ruggles and Frank Ruggles, and her sister Alma Burrows.
