Florence Litton Hopkins

January 29, 1950 - December 9, 2019

Florence Litton Hopkins, age 69, of Magnolia, DE, passed away on Monday, December 9, 2019.  She was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on January 29, 1950 – the daughter of the late George and Katherine (Boyce) Litton.  She graduated from West Philadelphia Catholic High School.  When she worked, she was employed as a Medical Receptionist but primarily as a Medical Assistant.

“Flossie,” as she allowed her good friends to address her, enjoyed cooking Italian as well as other cuisines.  She liked decorating her home in intimate detail.  She had a soft spot in her heart for all animals, but her and Jim especially liked German Shepherd dogs; they had two – Cocoa and Lady.  She and Jim enjoyed Lancaster, Pennsylvania – for Florence to browse the gift shops and for both to browse the Amish Furniture stores, as well as going to the Millennium Theater for the Christian productions.  Florence was proud to be a “Philly Gal.”

She is survived by her husband, James Hopkins; step-children, Michael, Brian and Julia; brothers, William Litton (Marlene) and George Litton (Alice); and sister, Kathryn “Cassie” (John Torrieri, Jr.).

A visitation for family and friends will be held from 10 am until 11 am on Friday, December 20, 2019, at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 275 East Main Street, Middletown, DE.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 11:30 am on Friday, December 20, 2019, at St. Joseph Parish, 371 East Main Street, Middletown, DE.  Interment will follow in Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 2465 Chesapeake City Road, Bear, DE.

  • My beloved wife – you were my best friend and I know I was yours. I miss you beyond what I can say in words; my tears, because of the emptiness without you flow continually. I am asking myself, “How will I go on without you, Flossie?” The consolation I have is from – in the next moment after your passing – a serene look came on your face; it was God and you telling me that you are okay – in the bosom of His love.
