TO EXPRESS THE PROFOUND SORROW OF THE MEMBERS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES UPON THE PASSING OF CHERYL J. HOPKINS OF WINNSBORO AND TO EXTEND THE DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO HER FAMILY AND MANY FRIENDS.
Whereas, the South Carolina House of Representatives was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Cheryl J. Hopkins of Winnsboro on March 4, 2019; and
Whereas, the beloved daughter of Mrs. Shirley (Vonnie) Brown of Charlotte, North Carolina, and the late Mr. Henry Wilks, Cheryl J. Hopkins was born March 1, 1961, in Winnsboro. At an early age, Mrs. Hopkins joined Shady Grove Church, where she served on the usher board and numerous committees; and
Whereas, Mrs. Hopkins, affectionately known as "Bunny," was educated in the Fairfield County public school system and graduated from Winnsboro High School in 1979. She continued her education at Rutledge Business College in Charlotte, where she received an associate's degree; and
Whereas, she then started her career in banking at the Bank of Fairfield (Wells Fargo), where she spent the following thirty-five years serving Fairfield County's banking needs. She loved her customers and enjoyed the friendships she developed with her co-workers; and
Whereas, at home, Mrs. Hopkins enjoyed interior decorating and working in the yard planting flowers. Most of all, she loved giving to others and was always willing to lend a helping hand; and
Whereas, Cheryl J. Hopkins leaves to cherish her memory her dear husband of thirty-six years, Lindsay Hopkins, Jr. They were high school sweethearts and had been together forty-two years. She also leaves her daughter, Alicia Hopkins, and her son, Christopher (Shresha) Hopkins; her two grandchildren, Lauren and Skyler Hopkins; her mother, Shirley (Vonnie) Brown; one sister, Sabrina Kennedy; three brothers-in-law, Timothy (Jewel) Hopkins, Eugene (Janice) Hopkins, and Stevie (Michelle) Hopkins; one sister-in-law, Randy (Fred) Simpson; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and other loving family members and friends who loved her and will miss her dearly. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, express their profound sorrow upon the passing of Cheryl J. Hopkins of Winnsboro and extend the deepest sympathy to her family and many friends.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Mr. Lindsay Hopkins, Jr., for the family.
