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.).
