Lauren Alaina HOPKINS Obituary

HOPKINS, Lauren Alaina

Lauren Alaina Hopkins, 23, of Manchester, passed away on Sunday (July 1, 2012) at Manchester Memorial Hospital, succumbing to her severe asthma. Lauren was born on April 22, 1989 and lived most of her life in Andover. She leaves behind her large, loving family and many friends who will never forget her beautiful smile. All her life Lauren was a devoted animal lover who rescued many animals and now leaves behind "her children" three lovely cats and a disabled puppy. She was beautiful and strong, a gymnast for 12 years, a member of the National Honors Society who attended her beloved Stetson University in Florida on scholarship. Lauren was also a talented artist. May family and friends were honored with her handmade jewelry. A "Home Coming Queen" at RHAM High School, she was a most compassionate person with a heart of gold and a special drive to help the underdog. Lauren is survived by her beloved mother Susan (Hopkins) Kennedy and her father Matthew Hopkins, her devoted sister Dana Kate Hopkins. She leaves so many others who she loved and who loved her in return including her step-sister Chelsea Graham; Jon Ryan Delaney and Sean Gregory Delaney, her dear cousins who were like brothers to Lauren; step-father John T. Kennedy; step-mother Audra Hopkins, maternal grandparents Clifford and Carol Slicer; paternal grandmother Helen Hopkins; and many wonderful aunts uncles, cousins, extended family members, the entire Andover family; her boyfriend Angelo Vazquez; her dear little cousins Morgan and Madison; her step cousins Daniel and Brendon Kennedy; and all of her lifelong friends from Andover Lake area. Lauren challenged herself and many others to dare to dream. She touched our lives with her unyielding spirit, courage and fathomless compassion. Forever in our hearts you will be sorely missed.
