Melissa HOPSON Obituary
HOPSON, Melissa D. Mrs. Melissa D. Hopson, 54, of Waleska passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 21, 2017 surrounded by her family at her residence. A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held at a later date. Melissa had a passion for people, animals and living life to the fullest. Her love for children led her to share her talents, through her chosen profession, as a Certified Equine Therapist. She was always willing to help anyone in need, as expressed by her memberships and efforts with the American Legion Unit 45 and Lake Arrowhead Church. Her Sanctuary was found on her "FORE-EVER FARM" which she owned with her husband, Steven. Melissa's passing now leaves a void that was once filled with grace and strength. Her family finds comfort in God's word which says: " God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble" (Psalm 46:1). She was preceded in death by her father, Edwin Clark Jones, Jr.; mother-in-law, Jean Hopson. Survivors include her husband of 23 years, Steven Hopson; children, Dena Boyd , Michael Hopson, Shelby Hopson; mother, Elizabeth W. Bozzuto; siblings Juli Owen (Lorenzo), Edwin C. Jones, III (Gwen), Dayna S. Jones; grandchildren, Alex Boyd, Mac Boyd, Marley Jean Boyd; step-mother, Carol Clark Jones; aunt, Shirley Morgan; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Tom and Martha Hopson; nieces and nephews, Joshua A. Jones, Matthew K, Jones, Paula C. Jones, Nicole S. Jones and Elizabeth S. Jones.
