Mary C. Hopkins, 77, entered into eternal rest Feb. 4, 2014. Mary was under the care of Golden Living Center, Tunkhannock, and Asera Care Hospice. Her husband of 55 years, David W. Hopkins Jr., shortly followed and joined her, entering the Kingdom of Heaven together.
The Guest Book is expired.
One of seven children to Harry Siglin and Elba Jones Siglin, of Noxen, she resided in the Vienna/Great Meadows area of New Jersey for more than 40 years.
She was employed by the United Jersey Bank and was ultimately promoted to bank manager.
Upon retirement, she and Dave moved back to Noxen. Leaving many friends, co-workers and family had remained her only regret.
While in Noxen, she continued to receive calls and visits from those she dearly missed. She would talk about their visits for weeks afterwards.
While she resided in New Jersey she was a member of the Vienna United Methodist Church were she served as a lay minister, and after retiring and relocating to Noxen she became a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church of Dallas.
Mary chose this passage as her favorite quote under her 1954 yearbook photo: "Words cannot express the helpfulness of one, who works in faith until her deed is done."
It is evident to anyone knowing Mary that she has carried and fulfilled that effort her entire life. When anyone was in need, Mary was always there, offering her assistance and support in any manner possible.
Mary's greatest joy was spending time with family and friends. Although she had no children of her own, a Mother's love was expressed and evident to all of those who were a part of her life.
Later in life, Mary reminisced with joy over the memories she has shared with family and friends. Whether it was small get-togethers with family or one of the many trips she and Dave enjoyed over the years. They travelled yearly to Cape May, N.J., where they joined family for a week.
In the fall, it was their trip to a friends home in Maine, weekend trips to Treasure Lake, DuBois, as well as the trip they took Dave's parents on to Florida. In leaving us, we can always reflect on the joyful memories she shared with us all.
Along with her husband, Dave, Mary is survived by three sisters: Elba Sickler (Nile) of Beaumont, Myrl Jenks (Ken) of Sun City, Ariz., and Emerrene Bailey of Windsor, Conn.; as well as many beloved nieces, nephews and in-laws.
Funeral services held at the convenience of the family from the Nulton-Kopcza Funeral Home, 5749 SR 309, Beaumont, with no calling hours.
