Mary Edith Hopkins of Fallbrook died April 9, 2014. Born to Anton and Helen Willoughby on May 12, 1923, in Chadron, Nebraska, Edith was the eldest of eight children (six brothers and one sister). Her family moved to Hermosa Beach, Calif. where she was an honor student at Redondo Union High School.

It was during her years in Hermosa Beach where she met her husband, Jack "Hoppy" Hopkins. They married on March 1, 1942 and had four sons, who they raised in Hermosa Beach. After their sons were grown, Edith and Jack moved to Fallbrook in 1976.

Just one year after the move, Edith was widowed when Jack went to be with the Lord. Edith continued to live in the home that she and Jack bought until her passing. She left her grandchildren with many fond memories of their spring breaks at Grandma Edie’s. She dearly loved being with her grandchildren and kept them delighted and entertained with special crafts and games.

Edith began her life-long Christian Ministry and Bible Study in the 1950’s in Hermosa Beach which she continued for over 36 years in Fallbrook. Her ministry took her to India, Israel and throughout the US.

She touched many lives with her passionate and everlasting love of God and her desire to share the gospel. She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her four sons, Paul, Craig, Lance, and Kirk and their wives, Irene, Denise, Linda, and Blanca; her brothers, Leon, Ron, Mark, and sister, Kay. She had 16 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren.
