KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) Family, friends, co-workers and customers gathered to remember Janet Hawk, known as “Ms. Janet,” at a celebration of life on Monday.

The 7-Eleven at 1000 S. W. S. Young Drive was crowded with dozens of people leaving special notes and donations at a table outside the gas station.

Hawk’s boss, owner Charles Williams says Hawk was a very private person who always made customers smile every time they came in.

“She was well-known and loved in her community,” he said.

“She would joke with you and talk to you when you were in the store. If you had any problems, she’d take the time to speak with you and we loved her.”

Hawk was a long-time employee with over 13 years of experience working with the company.

She had been working at the S. WS Young location since 2016.

She passed away on Jan. 7.
