Virginia Hopkins of O'Fallon, MO, passed away at the age of 73 on Thursday, April 18, 2019. She was preceded in death by her parents, William and Edna Donovan; and 15 siblings.

Virginia was a nature-lover who loved growing plants with her green thumb and loved taking care of animals. She had a traveler’s spirit and cherished all of her trips, especially the ones to Florida and the beach. Collecting tea pots, windchimes, and old books was a hobby of Virginia’s and she was very proud of her collections. Friends and family will always remember how great a mother Virginia was and how she was both selfless and kind who loved her family unconditionally. She will be dearly missed.
Contributions in Virginia’s memory can be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
