The highlight of her bowling career came when she was crowned the Indiana State Senior Champion in her age division. She was also an excellent seamstress and enjoyed making clothes for herself and the grandchildren.
Mrs. Hopkins will be missed by her husband, Russell M. Hopkins; daughter and son-in-law, Teresa & Paul Million; son & daughter-in-law, Russell B. & Lisa Hopkins; five grandchildren, and one sister, Naomi Connor.

Our sympathies to the family. I always enjoyed going over to their house on Filby Rd for reunions in the summer and sledding in the winter and are some of my fondest memories. May Bernie rest in peace now and hugs and kisses to Uncle Bud, Rusty and Lisa and their families.
