July 31, 1938 — December 24, 2023

Willma Jean Hopkins was born on July 31st, 1938 in Wichita Falls, TX to Ted and Marie Bouge. She passed away in Rockwall, TX on December 24, 2023 from kidney failure.

She is proceeded in death by her parents Ted and Marie, husband Glenn Hopkins and her beloved Son Gary Ray Hopkins.

Wilma and Glenn met @ Forest Ave High School, and they married in 1955.

She is survived by Beloved daughter JoAnn Findl & husband Eric of Rockwall, TX. Step-Son Steven Hopkins & Wife Audrey of Rockwall, TX, and Step-Daughter Robin Ezell & Husband Ehren of Austin, TX.  Daughter-in-law Glenda Hopkins of Mesquite, TX. Sister-in-Laws, Helenand Shirley. 

Wilma is also survived by several nieces and nephews, spanning from Mesquite, TX to Las Vegas, NV!!!

Wilma has 7 Grandchildren, 4 Great-Grandchildren, and 3 Great-Great Grandchildren, and lets not forget the fur-babies – Trixie, Stormie, and Ellie Mae! 

Wilma’s hobbies were – bingo, slot machines, and sports – you can’t forget that dice shooting or pool-sharking in her younger years. Many guys at the local VFW Hall in Childress, TX wouldn’t shoot pool against her, because she would run the table on them. 

Over the past few years, her FAVORITE phrase was “Chelsey and I are “going NORTH” and most of you know what “North” means! 

Her favorite sports teams were the Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Rangers.

In closing, Wilma lived her life to the fullest, but was tired, and often talked about why she was still here. Thank you for those who chose to be in her life and celebrate this time with us – for it is a celebration. Don’t have sorrow, for she was ready … ready to go home and see Buddy and Gary again, for their own celebration.
