Roberta Hoffner Hopkins, a resident of Atria Senior Living in Austell, GA, died Friday the 28th of September, at Pruitt Healthcare Center.
Roberta was born in Anderson, Indiana on January 12, 1930, to Perce Hoffner and Roberta Hallenbeck Hoffner. She attended Butler University, where she met her husband of 60 years, Thomas Hopkins. At Butler, she was a member of Delta Gamma sorority and remained active in the Panhellenic society throughout her life. She was active in Community Theater, both acting and directing. Roberta and Thomas led fulfilling lives during which they lived in Greendale, WI, Metuchen, NJ, and Birmingham, MI. After retirement, they relocated to Carolina Trace in Sanford, NC and wintered in Florida, as they continued enjoying exciting travel and dear friends.
After her husband’s passing in 2010, Roberta moved to Penick Village in Southern Pines, NC. While there, she continued to travel and participated in many activities, including yoga, sports, Residents Council, and writing a column for the community called “Ask Robi” of which she was very proud.
She was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the United Methodist church.
She was loved and will be missed dearly by those who survive her: her daughters and their husbands, Christy and Doug Johnson of Mableton, GA, Carla and Doug McIntosh of York, PA, and Nancy and Bob Shultz of St. Petersburg, FL; her grandchildren, Quinn Neidig and husband Joe of Brooklyn, NY, Rachel Scott and husband Kris of Powder Springs, GA, Thomas Hopkins McIntosh of Philadelphia, PA, Maggie Cole and husband Alan of Dallas, GA, and Marybeth Freibott of St. Petersburg, FL; and her cherished great-grandchildren Jordan Taylor, Zadie Neidig, Finley Cole, and Marshall Neidig.
“Bobbi Ann” is also survived by her loving brothers and their wives: James and Marlee Carter of New Gloucester, Maine, John and Karen Carter of Anderson, Indiana and Ronald and Stella Carter of Frankfurt, Indiana plus many other family members.
A memorial celebrating the lives of Thomas and Roberta Hopkins will be held at a later date in Anderson, Indiana. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be sent to Habitat for Humanity.
