Linda Alice Hopkins

ASHTABULA - Linda Alice Hopkins, 71, passed away Wednesday, December 6, 2017 surrounded by loving family and friends.

She was born on July 30, 1946 in West Virginia, the daughter of Russell B. and Dorothy L. (Hudson) Dunbar.

Linda was an amazing woman, and to express her significance in words would be impossible.

She was a lover of all things, but most importantly her family, friends, church, and animals. Abused dogs had a special place in her heart, and her and her husband, Mel Hopkins, rescued and adopted many of them into their family.

Linda was also an exceptional cook, and had worked many years at Broadfield Manor Nusring Home as their dietary manager. It was something she was very proud of, and upon retirement she devoted a lot of her time to preparing meals for her church.

When she was not busy cooking, Linda enjoyed watching the Cleveland Cavaliers and Browns, as well as Nascar. She also enjoyed doing whatever it was that her loved ones enjoyed. If her nephews wanted to camp out she wanted to camp out. She also enjoyed making a trip to the movies for just the girls, and then another trip just for the boys.

Linda will be greatly missed for her exceptional love that extended way beyond those in her immediate family. Even if she barely knew you, her faith and genuine soul cared so much for you that she would often say a prayer on your behalf.

She leaves behind her beloved husband whom she celebrated 24 wonderful years with on October 9th, Mel Hopkins; sons, Darrin (Dina) Cook, Dean Cook, and Darrell Cook; sisters, Darla Titus, Diana Long, Carolyn (Alex) Tapia, Nancy (Jorge) Hernandez, Debbie Dunbar, Rhonda Dunbar, and Sandy Davila; brothers, Gary (Cindy) Dunbar and Dennis Dunbar; grandchildren, Brandon, Brittany, David, and Johnathan; and great granddaughter, Abigail Rose.

She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Donna Bradley; brother, Russell Ray; sister-in-law, Diana Dunbar.

Visitation will be from 11AM - 1PM with a service to follow at 1PM at First Church of God, 1910 S Ridge Rd W, Ashtabula, OH on Monday,December 11, 2017 with Pastor Hal Morgan officiating.

Memorial contributions in her name may be made to DUCRO FUNERAL SERVICES AND CREMATORY who is handling the arrangements.
