A devoted wife, mother, foster mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, Virginia loved having her family around and cherished each one of them in a very special way. A woman of strong Christian faith, Virginia was an active member of the Shelby First Freewill Baptist Church. She was hard working, loving, caring, giving, and was a friend to everyone. A true servant’s heart, Virginia gave her love so freely to the countless children that she was a foster parent to for more than 30 years. She loved to cook, sew and garden. The matriarch of the family, Virginia was the glue that bonded them all together and she will be greatly missed.
She leaves behind her loving husband, William Hopkins; her children, Marsha Henderson, Penny Gardiner, Joey (Kathy) Hopkins, Jerry (Cheryl) Hopkins, Darrell Hopkins, Brian Wonder and Lucas Wonder; numerous grandchildren; many great-grandchildren; her brother, Vernon Hamilton; and her sister, Wanda Nichols.
