DEJOUX--Blair Christine Hopkins, 44, died peacefully at home on November 3, 2012, after a valiant, graceful, and dignified battle for 2 ½ years against the cancer that finally took her life. Beloved daughter of Sydney (Goos) and Robert William Hopkins II, of Princeton, NJ and Palm Beach, FL, adored sister of Chandler Anne Hopkins and Whitney Hopkins Duncan, Blair was the cherished wife of 17 years of Edouard Henri Grace Dejoux and the devoted mother of Christine, 13, Charlotte, 9, and Isabelle, 6. A beautiful and gracious woman, Blair attended Princeton Day School, and was a graduate of St. George's School, where she met her husband. She graduated from Trinity College with a degree in English Literature. Blair was graced with a vibrant sense of humor, a great love of reading, and a special affection for animals. She enjoyed a career in the Fashion industry prior to starting a family. Her greatest joy was motherhood and her three beautiful daughters were the center of her life. She was a devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and a beloved friend to many. She was blessed with enormous support from a broad and loving group of friends and family throughout her courageous battle. A memorial service will be held on Friday, November 9th at 10:30am at St. John's of Lattingtown in Locust Valley, NY, where Blair and Edouard were married in 1995.
