She attended Goldey-Beacom College and married John Hopkins in 1956. She and her husband founded Comfort, Inc., a mechanical contracting business that served the Delmarva Peninsula for 25 years. They were affiliated with various Christian organizations, including being charter members of the original group who established WOLC, a Christian radio station on the Eastern Shore. For many years, she enjoyed hosting dinners, Bible studies, weddings, and prayer groups for their church, Family Ministries, at their home, Peaceful Acres in Bridgeville, DE.

She shared her love for music playing piano, harp, guitar and as a vocalist. She also enjoyed directing children's choirs in the Bridgeville area. In retirement, they enjoyed sailing "Morning Star" throughout the Virgin Islands. It was their pleasure to have shared many times aboard with friends and relatives.
