Margaret “Maggie” Hawk, 75, of New Smyrna Beach left this material world for greener pastures on October 17, 2021 after a long illness. Maggie was born on December 4, 1945 to Albert Morazes and Cora Virginia Morazes nee Fleckenstein of Trumbull, Connecticut. She grew up in Connecticut until relocating to Massachusetts to attend Clark University, where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. After returning to Connecticut and beginning her career, she met her future husband, Roger “Rick” Hawk. It was love at first sight, and after exactly a year’s romance, they married.

Maggie worked in a wide variety of fields including teaching English as a second language. When she settled in Pennsylvania with Rick in 1974, she became a technical writer and editor for several companies including Exxon and Unisys. Five years later Maggie and Rick welcomed their only child, Matthew. When the family relocated to New Smyrna Beach in 1991, Maggie immediately started down a new career path to becoming a realtor. She worked for Watson Realty in New Smyrna Beach for the remainder of her career. Over the nearly 25 years she collected many awards, selling more than a million dollars of real estate each year from 1995 through 2003. She was particularly proud to have been named New Smyrna Beach’s Realtor of the Year in 1997.

Maggie served with the Realtors Political Action Committee, including as the New Smyrna Beach Board of Realtors’ RPAC chairman in 2003. She was also active in the March of Dimes through the real estate industry, serving as its organizer for South Volusia WalkAmerica. Outside her professional pursuits, Maggie’s outgoing personality and social interests gave her broad connections in New Smyrna Beach and she became a patron of its art community. She regularly attended its many art shows such as Holiday Charity Ball, Images, and Horsin’ Around. Her many years of working in New Smyrna’s real estate field also gave her a personal passion for development issues in her sleepy beachfront community, and she was a board member of New Smyrna Beach Citizens for Smart Growth. She also had a great love of mystery novels and British mystery shows.

Maggie is survived by Roger (Rick), her husband of 47 years; Matthew, an attorney in Atlanta; sister-in-law Carolee Bavaro and her husband, Nick, of Apopka; and brother-in-law Ken of Edgewater.

    I did not know Maggie for many years but the short time I knew her...she was one of the best. She was so friendly, helpful, and smart. Her knowledge of NSB was greatly appreciated by and helpful to NSB Citizens for Smart Growth. I am also lucky to have met her wonderful, caring husband Rick, her greatest support. My condolences to you Rick, and Matthew.

    I met Maggie through her son Matt. He became friends with my son Max. She was generous and wonderful with the boys.
    I also ran into her during some of her social action supporting art and other local New Smyrna Beach events. She had a great sense of humor. She will definitely be missed by many. Enjoy this next level Maggie.
