Bonnie Brooke Hopkins, 72, of Dalton, died Friday morning at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton after a short but brave battle with cancer. She and her husband, Robert W. Hopkins, would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on Sept. 14.
Born in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late Elmer and Mildred Clegg Fletcher. She was a 1958 graduate of Abington Heights High School.
Bonnie enjoyed the outdoors, and you could always find her working in her yard. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and loved nothing more than spending time with her grandchildren and family. She was an amazing person who loved life no matter what she was doing and always had a big smile on her face. Her granddaughters loved her dearly and will never forget the unconditional love and special bond they shared.
The family would like to thank the cardiac ICU unit at Geisinger Community Care Center for the wonderful care and compassion during her illness.
Also surviving are two sons, Mark, Clarks Summit; and Robert and wife, of Tunkhannock; a daughter, Brooke Keisling and husband, Matt, Clarks Summit; five grandchildren, Hunter, Aaron and Garrett Hopkins; and Linley and Paige Keisling.
She was also preceded in death by a brother, Gene Fletcher.
A funeral service and interment will be private at the convenience of the family. Memorial contributions may be made to the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter, 967 Griffin Pond Road, S. Abington Twp., PA 18441.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Lawrence E. Young Funeral Home and Cremation Service, 418 S. State St., Clarks Summit. To sign the online guestbook, go to www.lawrenceeyoungfu neralhome.com
